I've recently moved and am taking the opportunity to go through some containers of "stuff" issued to me over multiple deployments that is still brand new. I don't want any money for it, I didn't pay for it.

-3 Army Combat Shirts size Medium. These are manufactured by Massif and were a Godsend during the hot season in the desert. Approved for flight by the Army and originally made to be worn under our body armor. They are classified as "flame resistant" and are not Nomex.

-2 Flame resistant hoods still in the wrappers as issued. I don't know what they're made of but the fabric appears to be Aramid.

-2 CEP harnesses (helmet mounted jack to the earbuds). Brand new. These were another Godsend when we first got CEP's in the late 90's vs yellow foam earplugs and regular earcup speakers in an open cockpit with a .50 muzzle three feet from your face.

-1 24" CEP harness extension.

-3 packs of 12 CEP tips size "slim". Designed to screw onto the end of the harnesses mentioned above. FYI, If you don't have the correct size for your ear they can cause excruciating pain at the opening of the ear.

I would like to take the cep stuff of your hands and one or two hoods.
I would like the shirts as I wear them but I don’t think they would fit.

Thanks

Dam, you snooze you lose. I just got on and seen this. My Bonehead has the CEP era buds and I love them. One wire got kinked early on with use. I was going to order, haven’t yet but the CEP connectors you just gave away are $150 per!

Got it. I'll have this stuff in the mail tomorrow for Cactus and Bpulaski. Still need an address from Kevin Schutz......

Yeah.....I still have some items I'm not ready to let go of from the good ol' bad days. A beat up helmet, some bloody gloves. Some of it brings back memories of good men that aren't with us anymore. Why do we torture ourselves like this?

I'll take a look when I get home in the morning. They are standard Army issued CEPs. Left wire longer than the right as the helmet connector was installed behind the right earcup on HGU 56 and SPH4's.

Yep, sounds good, wish I could post the pic. The plugs is a circular type that can swivel as needed after being plugged in. Worst case I guess I can always put it back on here return it to sender too!

Greg you mentioned Military, I wonder if the impedance is all wrong. Thank you sir for your consideration but I think to save time and a lot of hassle I'll pass as the numbers aren't even close. The plug in looks good but?

I can still send them your way to try out. These are at least 13yrs old NOS so the part number may not match anything out there now. Hey, it's free stuff!
