Emerson FAST Helmet - Differences?

Hey guys, just a really quick question on the Emerson FAST helmet; I've found 2 sites that have them in stock, but I'm confused on why one site is $35 cheaper? I realize there are different models of the helmet (PJ, MH, Base Jump & Ballistic) so I'd love to get some input from those of you who have these specific models.

Sites:

vs.

PS. I realize I'm not AVed yet, working on it (not much time to get AVed due to work & family circumstances).

Also consider the new Team Wendy helmets that have a new rail for more accessories.

Damn, those are nice.
I searched up questions about the Emerson FAST helmet & stumbled across a thread, where a kind fellow mentioned these:

He swears by them, so I'm going to order one & let you know how it goes. Thanks for the quick reply!

You don't need to be AV'ed to buy gear.

Only part's & Guns.

I picked this up for $55 from AirsoftDepot... half the price and quality is great!

I had that one and bought this one because it stayed cooler on hot days. The holes vent the heat out better.

No Branding most likely, but unless you are buying the "real" one, all the replicas are pretty much the same thing..

No point paying a lot for a "rep" when it serves the same purpose

Ditto on Airsoft Depot. Huang's always been great to buy from and if something has a problem he's easier to work with than overseas.

There is a name "ideal military". The marking only on their premium version helmet. Their cheap version is a litte bit better than Emerson or FMA.

The premium version is way much better but double the prices.

And Ideal military is working on the maritime version of of fast helmet, which is the actual issued helmet for Navy Seal and showned in movie Zero Dark Thirty.
