AN/PSQ-20 NVG… New Helmet Cover for New Goggles

    Not just any helmet cover will do when you’re wearing the AN/PSQ-20  enhanced night vision goggles (ENVG) on your advanced combat helmet (ACH).  You can’t use the standard ACH cover because it’s not designed to fit over the ENVG helmet mount and battery pack.

When you wear the AN/PSQ-20, you also need to wear the ENVG ACH cover. The ENVG cover has a large opening in front to fit over the helmet mount.  It also has a pouch flap in back to fit over the battery pack.  The camouflaged flap conceals the battery pack and helps to conceal you.  It also protects the pack and prevents it from snagging on objects.

You can easily tell the difference between the ENVG ACH cover and the standard ACH cover.  And that difference helps you choose the right cover when operating the ENVG.

The ENVG cover comes in sizes small/medium, large/x-large and xx-large.  It’s available in universal camouflage pattern (UCP) and Operation Enduring Freedom camouflage pattern (OCP).

    Currently, the ENVG ACH helmet cover is not in the supply system.  Units will be issued the cover when they deploy.  If you need a replacement cover, phone Project Manager Soldier Maneuver Sensors’ (PM SMS) Anthony Pesano at (703) 704-4895 or email:
