    MSA - Cairns' just released the XF1 helmet, fully compliant with the US regulations. It's the state of the art in term of fire helmets.

      Who cares? Buy one if you want to. You'll never convince me in the short time I have left to want one.
      Crazy, but that's how it goes
      Millions of people living as foes
      Maybe it's not too late

        The F1 series has been the standard in my country for 30 years. I've been wearing the F1SF long enough to love it and I can't wait for my FD to receive the XF1 (overhere it's called the F1XF, with a few variations such as heat deflecting visor and neck curtain).

        I by no mean want to "convince" anyone, I think you're capable of assessing what's the best for you. But objectively the XF1 offers the best protection you can think of.

        In my FD we also use an alternate helmet, which is the F2 : it's much much lighter, it's dedicated to forest fires and rescue missions.

          No different from the Metro style combat Tupperware. Most departments just put a big decal on the shell itself.

            Duplicate Post.
            Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

              You can also choose the color of the shell and get a custom front plate.
              Some FD use the color of the shells to identify the rank and function of the personnel. Orange for the troops, yellow for the sub-officers, white for the officers, green for the medical personnel etc...

                Actually you can get a Unit identifier shield for a 660 style helmet. We had Leather fronts on ours when I was a CFR firefighter. They attached with Velcro.
