The cairns 1010/1000 is a much better helmet for your money, a lot more comfortable and a lot more heat protection.

              I beg to differ, my friend.. Check out Bryan Purtle's work..

              http://redhouseshields.com/

              all hand made, including the stitching for now. He will make anything you have as far as ideas for a leather shield.

              His shields are real thick.

                  I use the Firestore helmet fronts. I have never had a problem out of them.

                      And to add, i second DE Williams shields for the flag work. His stuff is top notch. F&T shields does beautiful work as well.

                      The Fire Store fronts are made by Shields of Valor and the quality is excellent. We got a big batch of them and have no complaints. They all had the brass stiffner bar standard.

                      I have an older Cairns shield which works great. I posted my issue with Paul Conway shields in a thread about a year ago. The shield i ordered was nothing like what the website showed. Not even close. I wrote them an e-mail explaining in detail all my issues and i got a one line response saying "That is the way it is". Paul Conway shields will never see my money again and i will continue to let people know they clearly are not concerned with making customers happy. And all bias aside, their is nothing at all about Conway that made their shields any better then Cairns or D.E. Williams anyhow. They are all good quality.

                        Try Fireline Shields out of Charlotte, NC. They're all hand carved on pretty thick pieces of leather. I don't have one yet (getting one soon), but his shields have held up very well.

                        You could also try Firefighter Shields in NC as well.

                          Just checked those sites out.. Excellent work.

                          Visually it goes to Firefighter Shields, but musically, it goes to Fireline Shields. That background music is awesome. I wonder who it is.
