Bulgarian M72 Helmet

Bulgarian M72 Helmet

The Bulgarian M72 helmet may be green on the outside, but believe me when I say that it is as red as can be. Each of these communist-era combat helmets is an authentic piece of Bulgarian military surplus and remains in excellent condition, ready to serve. These came to us in their original crates, so the condition on each M72 helmet is exceptional.

Description / Bulgarian M72 Helmet

The Bulgarian M72 helmet is an authentic Bulgarian military surplus item. These steel helmets were once standard-issue service helmets and were originally designed for and issued to members of the Bulgarian land forces, one of the three major service branches that make up the military of Bulgaria, officially known as the Bulgarian army. Interestingly enough, these helmets were originally designed to replace the M36 helmet, an earlier German-styled helmet. The design for the Bulgarian M72 helmet is nearly a direct copy of the Italian M33 combat helmet with only slight aesthetic differences.

The helmet was in GREAT condition, looks good, no problems there. The only issue I have is that it was too small for me but it will go well in the collection. I got a size 57 because 58 is sold out
Great condition, but unusable
Review by
The helmet appears to be unissued and looks great. There's just one problem... the liner is mounted crooked, making the chin strap unusable. At least it'll make a good display piece. Too bad I can't wear it.
Just in Case

For the price, this helmet was a good deal. While not the most comfortable thing in the world, it is made out of relatively thick steel and should offer reasonable protection for a variety of uses. Don't expect it to stop a rifle round, but it could be a lifesaver.
Excellent helmet
Review by
Looks like it just came out of the factory brand new. Had to order a second as the first was to small, but the next door neibors's son got a new play toy and should last him for awhile. Get one now before they are all gone.
Cool helmet collectible
Review by
The leather can be hit or miss but the helmet itself is generally in good shape. Mine was a bit crispy, but as a collector it's no dealbreaker!
