Upgrading Anovos TFA Standard Helmet


Recommended Posts

I bought an Anovos TFA standard helmet years ago and I'm finally trying to get my full armor set once I get my order from WTF. I want to upgrade the lining in the standard helmet as it's essentially a hard hat lining. I ordered those airsoft helmet pads from Amazon but the helmet is just so huge I think I need something much thicker. My head still bounces around inside the helmet. Anyone have any advice or experience with this?

Try the pads people use in the knee pads. You can find them on ebay and amazon. (The ones construction workers use)

Hey, just wondering If there’s a particular reason for the upgrade? I find the hard hat liner working very well :)

Those look to be about the same thickness as the pads I bought. Do people use anything else?

It's just uncomfortable and when I eventually want to troop I want it to feel more like a real helmet. Have you trooped in yours for long periods of time before? Because the liner can rotate in the helmet I also feel like I have to keep adjusting the helmet if I'm walking.

Do yours have padding on the forehead part? I know some Anovos helmets are missing it, I have it in mine. And yes I have trooped for hours, mayby you haven’t secured it in place enough? Try tightening the screws and see If it helps, mine stays put just fine. Hope you find a way that works for you :)

Thanks everyone. I have the bike helmet/airsoft padding already, maybe I just need to get more because it's not super thick. To those that converted the standard helmet to have padding - how did you get the black plastic holders off? I detached the head strap but the two plastic prongs that stick down seem glued on. I may just put a pad right on them.

Can you just pop them off? That's what I was planning on doing with mine.

Sorry to butt in yet again, If you secure the screws the helmet will sit firmly on your head with zero give...and most importantly using the standard hard hat liner will give you much more ventilation during troops - ok I’m done with my nagging:P As you were Trooper :salute:

I had the hard hat type plastic in mine and found it dug into my head after a long troop so promptly removed it and add some velcro and soft foam, a ring of foam goes around the temple and a thin piece of foam inside the top, pretty inexpensive upgrade but a lot more comfortable, for me anyway.

Man I put this bucket on and it is so much bigger then the TK ones. I feel like a bobble head.
