Hey im new here, just wanted to see what helmets people are using and what they think of them. Our vol. dept just got a grant for 25 full new sets of turn out gear, we were glad to hear last night that we will more than likely get leather boots. several of us though would like to get traditional style helmets. The catch though, is all 25 have to be the same, we cant each pick out one, so we all have to agree on one, meaning the cost of leather is way out of question, and i would not be surprised if we got the cheapest ones we found (again). One that I looked at a liked was the Ben franklin II plus, it has EZ flips that are NFPA approved, are these the same as bourkes?

I have a Cairns 1010 with a regular shield and a 1044 with bourks and goggles love them both. Just my opinion.
Silly silly silly....the only good fire helmet is a LEATHER fire helmet!
On Greenville Fire in Indiana we use the Cairns 1010 with bourke shields and we love them.
