Sandbag Helmet

grind sand and pour it into your helmet

War is hell, and sometimes the simple helmets worn to protect against a range of impacts are just not up to the job. This has led to the introduction of the Sandbag Helmet, which behaves in a similar manner to that of wearing a sandbag on your head.

It can do this because it has a double skin that allows the space in between the innner and outer layer to be filled with about 20lbs of sand. This makes it quite heavy, but a pair of fold-down padded wings allow the more substantial helmet to partly rest on the shoulders, relieving any potential neck strain.

Note: this idea is the combat variation of the head cooling helmet post featured in the link.

       Clever. You could wear it as a regular hat when deflated and only fill it in a situation where comfort isn't top priority.

       Could be filled with gunpowder too

       You'd be surprised how many people still ride around wearing army helmets [+].
