    Hey Jeg532 and Adze, one of the young guys on the dept. told me around $30, I called this morning and was told $53. I going to get them regardless. I've got safety glasses I'll put with my extrication gloves Adze, good advice.
    Jeg532, my favorite guitar store is in Coshoction, Wildwood in Roscoe Village. I'm not allowed to go there to often though, especially after the Taylor 12 string I bought there $$$$$ for our budget!

    God Bless everyone!

      Hey Chaplain 41 (et. al.),

      Thefirestore.com has (and I quote)
      Bourke Eyeshields With Hardware Kit Included for $47.00 (plus shipping of course).

      They also list :
      Bourke Eyeshield Hardware Mounting Kit - Price $4.00
      Bourke Replacement Lens Kit With Two Lens, Fasteners, Drill Bit and Instructions - Price 23.00

      Now I dunno if those two items will have all the parts that the kit has - but that may be where the $30 ball park figure came from.

        Like the 1010.....fits well and has the added benefit of being paid for by the dept. I took off the shield, use Bourkes from an old leather and have a pair of goggles strapped on over the helmet....all in all it works pretty good.
        Leathers are fine but I have a kid in college..........nuff said.

          I personally have never worn the 1010, but I have friends that love them! I recently placed a Conway American heritage(similar to the 1010) into service. The Conway has adjustable height, looks great(like the 1010) and I found it to be about $50 cheaper overall. I now have friends that are considering replacing their 1010's. Just a thought. I was forced by my dept. to go with a 4" face shield, although I desperatly wanted the bourkes, they just look so damn good!!! Take care.....

            I have never worn anything other than my leather New Yorker. I love it.

            There are some guys on the job with me who have those plastic New Yorkers and I hate to say it, but they don't look as authentic as the real thing (in my opinion).

            Just my 2 cents....

                  Me Too........

                  My lovely bride gave me a 1010 for Fathers Day about 10 years ago. That, and my Pacific Helment for my Tech rescue activities, is about it for headgear for me. I still have most of the Helments that I acquired over the years, including 4 New Yorkers, 4 or 5 Metro's, and one Aluminum Traditional. The 1010 has been the best though. For eye protection, I use goggles. Period. I have a personal dislike for Flipdown eyeshields of any kind. Stay Safe....

                        thefirestore.com has some pretty competitive prices.

                          I bought a 1010 from All hands fire equiptment for about $175, I though it was a good price. Firestore is the best for fronts.

                            We have 1010's here. They are great, though I miss wearing my New Yorker since I got on the job here. Some guys do wear leathers here. Pretty much up to the Capt. if he allows it. Don't know if mine would let it fly.

                            BTW. I HATE the goggles too. I dont care for the way they are mounted on the helmet. I can never get them to fit right, and stay that way while pulling walls/ceiling. They fog up, sweat drips in your eyes, and after a couple of fires no matter how much you clean them...you cant see thru them. The lense keeps popping out of my frames. Thats why they are safely kept in my locker.

                            The best thing that has worked for me is your standard ANSI Z87.1 approved safety glasses. I use them for overhaul, extrications, etc.

                            If I need quick protection (not necessiarily the best), I like the bourkes. They dont get in the way when not in use, and easily deployable. Although you do get the same problem w/them as the goggles after a few fires.


                            I do have a question...has anyone tried the VISIONFLEX goggles?

                            http://www.thefirestore.com/store/pr...e_ansi_z87_1_/

                            Not quickly deployable, but you could don them enroute, or after you took your mask off. Inexpesnive. Id like to hear from anyone that has tried them and the pros/cons.
