The Bulgarian M36 steel helmet resembles the Wehrmacht's coal scuttle, but has softer edges and a rounder general shape. This probably makes it a pretty good helmet, at least for its time. Unless very recently discarded, these still see use.

These are mostly rather small in size, usually around 55-56 cm.

Leather liner & chinstrap. The leather parts may be a bit rough (no cracking, though), but generally these are serviceable. Still, we do not sell these for any actual protection purposes, only as a collectible items.

I have a bit of a helmet fetish so when these came back in stock I had to grab one. Opened my package and hot damn, mine had almost a perfectly intact Bulgarian flag shield on the side. Great piece of history.

Couldn't be happier with this purchase! The M36 helmet I got is in great shape for all the years of service it must have seen. All leather parts are in great shape with only needing a quick wipe down to remove the dust and grime. Has the typical paint scrapes and such but no rust or noticeable dents to speak of. A very nice complete helmet for any military collector. Varusteleka is top notch to work with if there are any questions or issues.

Army surplus

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
