The M1 was phased out during the s in favor of the PASGT helmet , [5] which offered increased ergonomics and ballistic protection.

The rim edge of the shell has a crimped metal band running around it, which provides a clean edge.

This is usually known as the “rim”. The metal band of the rim material has a seam where the ends of the strip meet. On the earliest shells the seam met at the front.

Even in cases of extreme risk, not only has death been avoided, but injuries have been confined to bruises or superficial wounds.
