Commando's Helmet

I was wondering if anyone knows where I might find something that looks like the commando's helmet (http://www.torhead.com/item/hawGGP0/commandos-helmet) for a companion? It seems I can't use the commando one since my companion isn't considered a 'trooper'.

I'm rather fond of the look, and would be pleased to bits if I could replace the fugly ones they're using now.

The one you linked doesn't say it requires a trooper, just "Requires Level 19" and "Requires Heavy Armor "....

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.

Interesting.
I have this "Commando's Helmet":
http://www.torhead.com/item/33JSuVm/commandos-helmet
for one of my alts' companions. OK for looks, but pretty low level and can't be modded, so probably not what you're after.

Another companion has an "ArmaTek Infantry Helm", which looks a bit more like an "Imperial Stromtrooper" helmet than what you're after. It also isn't listed on either site you linked, and not on swtor-spy either, but looks something like:
http://www.torhead.com/item/7G21HUS/...s-heavy-helmet
The linked one of course is for Jorgan only, but there's another similar one (based on the icons, anyway) for Elara. The ArmaTek one is not limited to class or companion (just Level 27, Heavy). But again, different look than that commando one, and not moddable, so perhaps not really what you're after.

The good news in all this is, if you really can't stand the look of it, you can hide the head slot on your comapnions now. So they can wear a helmet with decent stats, but not look so hideous.

Another thing you might try: visit Social vendors and check out their helmets. Social gear is "adaptive" so it will automagically be the heaviest type that you (or your companion) can wear. So maybe you can find a "heavy" helmet for your companion(s) from one of them.

heroic quests are repeatable, so you can always go back and redo them again if you wanted the rewards.

I've noticed most lower level crafted orange gear is class specific, so only players can wear, not companions.
A site you might try is http://tor-fashion.com/.
They only list orange gear and moddable end-game.

My mistake, I should pay better attention.
The set is BOP, so you may need to get to that level and just farm it. If your alt is a healer it shouldn't be too hard to get group finder to do the work for you.
Then all you have to do is sweet talk any troopers into letting you need on items they could use.

The laqerous mesh helmet, craftable by armormechs, shares the model that you are looking for.

It's a bit of a higher level set, but if you don't come across one (or however many you are looking for) by that time, this would be the easy way.

As long as we remember, it's never really gone.
