      I've worn the old Cairns 1000s, a Cairns 1010, and now I have a Paul Conway Shields American Heritage Leather.

      The 1000 was nice and light, but too small for my comfort. The 1010 was bigger and little bit heavier, but it's a fantastic helmet. It'd taken a beating and was still in good condition, so I turned it back in and commissioned my Paul Conway lid. I like the feel of the American Heritage, but I haven't had a real chance to run it through the mill yet.

        I have a Cairns 1010, very nice helmet. The firefighters that are not candidates just got Paul Conway American Heritage helmets, very nice as well.

          1835Wayne, the link you posted to eBay was the leather I bought few weeks ago! It's a small world after all... I got it so I'd have one at the volly house again, since I painted my old black one and wear it at work now.

            I have a Cairns 660 and its not that bad at all. Although i would rather have the 1010, its light and durable. But hey i guess any helmet is better than no helmet.

The position in the eyes of some, may appear to be a lowly one; but we know the work which a fireman has to do believe his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us, and stimulates us to do deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrafice." ---- Edward F.

                This is just like my helmet only mine isn't quite so clean.

                Although this is only the second helmet I have used, I haven't had any problems w/ it. My first helmet which was used through academy was a recycled/hand-me-down piece of crap. It did the job, but sure was great to step up to the Firedome UST after graduating academy. Everyone in my Dept uses the Firedome UST after graduating academy. There is no other option and I have not heard any complaints yet....
                Stay alert and be safe.

                        880

                        Hey For the person that asked about the 880. My first issueed helmet as a senior firefighter 8+ years ago was a 880. I like it and still have it. It is light and small. How ever I use a Ben Plus 2 I got from a friend and it is just as good. Just a little more weight and height.

                        Leather is a way to go, loved mine when I had it. Its now some where in PA near Chambersburg.

                        But my recommendation is this. If you plan on buying your own helmet. Don't go with what the cool fashion is. Go to a store if you can or any attack school. Try on several different types and makes and makers and models. Because in the end it is your head and neck using it. And if you comfortable in a TT then get one. If you feel better in leather save and get it too. You can alsways get a good tradition style helmet and save for the leather.

                        My thoughts.
                        Thanks
