          I have no idea why the LAFD chose that helmet. What I do know is that the department here provided us the opportunity to field test that helmet style, while searching for a USAR helmet.

          Honestly, it is a great helmet. It is comfortable, very light weight and relatively low cost. I never wore it for firefighting, but in wearing it for other purposes, I can't really bash it.

          Sometimes politics play more into a helmet or turnout gear selection than anything else.

            When a department selects any gear for the department 99% of the time it has to do with cost and politics. Besides what other helmet can you wear for both structural and wildland firefighting? Think about how much money the department saves by only purchasing one helmet for each member.

              We wore a helmet, the First Due Firefighter 1500-F97, for several years. I had no complaints with it, except it seemed to sit higher than others but it was a good helmet. It was adjusted correctly too.
