    Salad bowls: cooked

    I remember that job, did they let you guys keep those lids or did you have to dig them outta the safety office trash after they "examined" them??
    Not mine, that was the B plt; We had that place a month or 2 prior, but of course I was detailed to 20s that night so naturally I didn't do anything. I just got the chance to shoot them at Safety shortly after the second job.

    Do you prefer your salad cooked or raw?

These helmets are kind of like skater helmets with vents. I forget the brand, but it starts with a 'P'...Looking quickly over at thefirestore.com, the name "Petzl" loudly rings a bell, and looking at their products, I'm pretty sure it's the Petzl ECRIN ROC model that my department is using. Frankly, it doesn't look like it provides much protection.
    The Petzl Ecrin Roc is a rock climbing helmet designed for low impact protection. They do make an industrial version without the vent holes as well.
    They are actually a really comfortable mid weight helmet to wear and can take quite a few good knocks before you start to worry about them. THe best thing about the ecrin roc is how easy the ratchet system is to adjust on the fly so if you have to wear a cap underneath on a cold night it takes less than a second to adjust unlike other helmets.
    I wear one of these as a climbing/canyoning/caving guide on my days off, have upgraded to a lighter Petzl "climbing" helmet with a foam liner for my recreational climbing (about half the weight but not as much head coverage especially on the side above the ear)

    Coway American Classic (composite traditional) w/leather front $238

    Phenix 1500 w/faceshield $181
    That's a pretty good price.

    IMO, the "salad bowl" is a much more practical, all around helmet, especially if the department responds to a large number of brush incidents, such as my department. The traditional style is simply too heavy and not practical for brush operations and honestly, isn't overly practical for extrication or technical rescue operations.

    In addition, the price is an issue especially when the cost of a front plate is factored in. You can easily purchase 2, if not 3, salad bowls for the cost of one traditional with a front plate.

    If I had my choice, we would issue the LA City style Phoenix as that looks like an excellent all-around helmet.

    Now, if your department has the finances to purchase and issue multiple helmets for multiple tasks ...
    Thanks everyone for the answers.

    I have my own Cairns 1000 that I bought myself. I prefer the look of the traditional style (which is odd for me because in most other aspects of life, I prefer modernism), but didn't actually want real leather. I mainly just wanted to make sure I knew what the term meant.
