    I have an old Paul Conway Traditional that I bought years ago. Little dirty and beat up but still works great. It's only been used twice in the last five years since I retired. Once for when my parents' house burned down and then this year when my house caught on fire.

    At one of my departments, I am line firefighter and I wear a leather Sam Houston. My only issue is that it sits a little high on my head, but other than that I love it.

    At my other department, I am a line lieutenant and we are issued Ben Franklin II's and other than not being leather, it is simply great.

    I took out the ratchet system and the ear flaps from both helmets and I also attached bourkes on both helmets and I have no problems. The bourkes are smoked out and even melted a little. I'll probably end up replacing both sets of bourkes this year.

When it got broken in, it was like wearing your favorite baseball cap. This one seems like it took about a year for it to fit properly. The picture on the side is me when my lid was new.
    what picture??

    Not much of a leather myself. I think they get a lil' heavy on the ole coconut (IMHO). I prefer my 1010 w/ defender visor.
    The Phenix TL-2 is lighter(by a long shot) than the 1010

    Our department has been using the Bullard UST series and have held up very well in the heat and abuse of the fire service. Cairns might be nicer....but its double the cost of a Bullard and on a limited budget, its the most bang for the buck.
