b. Chinstrap (Figure 2-2). The chinstrap (5) is attached to the helmet at the right-hand
earcup retaining pad. A double D-ring (3) allows for one-handed adjustment. Tight-
ening the chinstrap will also tighten the earcups.
c. Nape Strap (Figure 2-2). The nape strap pad (1) features an adjustable cross strap
that feeds through two webbing loops, which are linked to straps extending from
each earcup retaining pad. This construction allows the nape strap pad and the ear-
cups to be adjusted at the same time via the adjustment straps (4). A tie-down strap
(2) extending from the top of the nape strap pad secures the nape strap pad to the
helmet shell through a cutout in the lining, helmet, shock (EAL). The earcup pads (6)
provide an attachment area for the earcups.
