The correct visor offers more protection, especially in the area where it looks like you got hit. Now, considering it knocked it off, maybe it wouldn't have mattered. But, I'd get it corrected regardless. You have to tell Gibson-Barnes exactly what you want, in my experience. I only buy there if I have to. Old lens with the "Contour" sticker is for the -12. Hard to tell the difference until you put it on. (my com wires have changed since this photo)

    Awesome!! Thank you!!!

    We are aware the visor is for the MBU-12, its in the upcoming article on the subject. When I talked to the guys at Gibson they didn't have the 20 visor. Great to hear that is sorted!!!

    Do you worry about your parachute risors getting caught on the permanently installed boom mic?

    Thank you again!

    Franz,

    Thank you for the note.

    We are pretty slammed right now with a bunch of cool projects. Our plan is to put Wasabi on the course in 2017, but right now there is a bunch of other stuff in front of it in line.

    Thanks again!!

    Nope.. I mean if it did, it would only be an inconvenience. The Navy issued a bunch of helmets with both a fixed mic and bayonet receivers for a mask.

    Interesting point.

    I don't have enough jumps to weigh in on the subject, but some folks get pretty wound up about it.
