Their cheap as dirt and aren't that heavy. I wear one a the time.

Local Army Navy store should have them by the bucket full.

The Steel pot helmet should be available at most Army navy stores. They are not any heavier than a PSGT helmet or any of the current reproduction "fake kevlar" helmets on the market.

Check out Sportsmans Guide, Cheaper than Dirt, etc. The M1 I had cost about $20 - with cover.

If you're already wearing a flak jacket, what's a steel helmet to you?

EDIT: Just googles out of curiosity and they only weigh about 3lbs. A WWII era one with the shell, liner, and strap was only 2.85lbs.
To put it into terms, a kevlar PASGT is anywhere from 3.1 to 4.2lbs. A Kevlar MICH is around 3 to 3.6 lbs.
