Anonymous asked: Hey why is it that you see a lot of soldiers whose helmet covers have the little flaps all over them? This is a dumb question but I've just always wondered. Is it wear and tear? Is it a real thing?
Haha it is a real thing. Honestly I don’t really know myself but I would say yes to natural wear and tear and perhaps also for the sack of camoflouge?
It’s to break up the outline of the helmet. Very few things in nature are perfectly round and symmetric. Your eyes are naturally drawn to symmetric shapes in a natural environment.
