The Bravo Head Set is a replication of a very popular communications system in use today by a variety of US Special Forces. The elastic strap and head strap are sturdy and stitched tight. The rubber coating on the wires are heavy duty and actually prevent unwanted ripping and bending. The plastic housing for the buttons and microphone are also of heavy duty materials, which makes them more robust than the flimsy knock offs. This headset fits under some helmets and is a great finishing touch on a special forces load out.
