As it is nearly identical to untrained eyes in shape to the PASGT, it is still called the "Fritz helmet" or "K-pot". Though heavier than the Army's advanced combat helmet, its larger size also offers more protection and is lighter than the PASGT. Featuring a V-neck strap and improved fit, it is much more comfortable than the PASGT. It entered service in late 2004 and will completely replace the PASGT by 2009. As with the PASGT helmet, it is an olive drab color, and can be fitted with cloth helmet covers in desert and woodland MARPAT camouflage patterns, as well as a mounting bracket on the front for any sort of night vision device, such as the AN/PVS-7 night vision goggle or AN/PVS-14 monocular night vision device. Marines currently can be issued with a sling suspension or a pad suspension to fit the inside of the helmet to the head. A nape protection system to add ballistic protection to the rear of the head is also being fielded.
