    I am getting some work done on my AnimeFan Boba Fett Lid, and I was thinking how do people keep the helmet from moving around on their head? I was thinking of using some sort of padding, but was not sure where to get it. Let me know how you pad or otherwise keep you lid from moving around

    I use the foam that is put in cases to protect things inside them. Like this.

    I have actually used this in my animefan, works well and easy to cut to size.

    I've installed hardhat liners in a few helmets.



    I've also heard that people like to use Skydex pad kits, like the military uses in their helmets.

    I will be using skydex in my helmet, but I would rather use the hardhat method, but since my helmet is a tad small, I don't think I have the room for one.

    I use the military helmet padding. It soaks up the sweat and is easy to configure to individual needs.

    i gutted out a little league baseball helmet and used the already formed padding. fits snug as a bug and still have plenty of room for all the extras.

    I like that Skydex pad system. Any idea where it may be found in Canada?

    Hey Sig - only on Ebay as our military uses something different. You can pick up a cheap set from China for about $15 which are just as good.

    No idea. Just a photo I found on Google. But it's very similar to ones that I've installed in several helmets.
