I noticed that as well. It says it in game though, at least I'm pretty sure that's the same one. It wouldn't let me equip it on my companion, claiming it was only for troopers and jedi knights.
I came across this one as well: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/181...us-mesh-helmet
, but wasn't sure if that would have the same problem or not. There was another as a reward for a Herioc4 on Alderaan, but I foolishly turned it down for the tokens back then.
