No, no, no Brick,
The steel helmet and Bazooka were my trademark gear in the 60's.
I gave up wearing a steel helmet and caring a Bazooka in 1968.

Now days there are better ways to defend against bears than a steel
helmet and Bazooka.
Of course back in those days the steel helmet and Bazooka were your
best line of defense against bears and marauding trail pirates like
One shot from the Bazooka will scorch their "Rear Ends" really good
and you never have to worry about them again.

BTW....the Bazooka will penetrate 11" of "Homogenous Steel."

The 55 to 85 lb packs I was referring to, I was hauling hiking with
the Scouts and Karen (my wife) to lessen their load.

You were also wearing a steel helmet and carrying a Bazooka.
