Zeta II Overview/Sizing
Step 1: Choosing Your Zeta II® Helmet Liner Length
Use this guide and the tables below to determine which size Zeta II® Helmet Liner is right for you. Measure the inside of your HGU-56P helmet from front to back — down through the bowl — as shown in the photo. Make a note of this measurement, then follow Step 2 to determine the liner thickness you need.
Step 2: Choosing Your Zeta II® Liner Thickness
The Zeta II® Helmet Liner for the Military HGU-56P is available in four thicknesses: 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8". The most common thickness we sell is 1/2". To determine the correct thickness liner for your helmet, refer table below.
NOTE: If your TPL® (Thermo Plastic Liner) has been heated and fitted, you will probably need a Zeta II® Helmet Liner one thickness thinner than listed below.
