Goggle Mod to attach to ARC Rails?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever seen a step-by-step for modding standard goggle (like Revision Desert Locust) straps to run through the wide arc rail clips that come with most helmets? I don't want to start cutting on straps until I'm sure of what I am doing! Searched the forum and Youtube to no avail...thanks!

Hey Scotch,

If I were you, I would go buy some velcro strips (hook and loop, both), go to a seamstress (I don't know any men that sew professionally, sorry in advance!), and show her exactly what you intend to do.  Cut the strap in half or however long, then form two seperate loops on each side.  Have the seamstress get an approximate measurement of your head wearing the helmet and where the goggle sits so she can cut position the velcro correctly.  Give yourself a couple inches with the "home" section, and the tab that makes the 180' turn can rest on it in various places to adjust tension.

Or just have her sew the elastic with the ARC loop adaptors inside. Either way you'll need to get an approximate fit.

Elastic straps are dirt cheap man, don't worry about tearing it up.  You can always get another one sewn.

This might cost you <$10.

If you're still in the Navy take the googles to your Flight E shop and have them cut and sew the straps around the ARC rail attachments. I was flight e and Iregullarly used the Flight E Sewing Machine to mod gear.
