  • New Yorker Helmet

    I am looking for a used New Yorker style helmet in good to excellent condition. Anyone have any ideas where to find one?

    The leather helmets used in the FDNY have changed to the hard plastic now, since osha had it's way. The leather helmets are bought by cadets in the academy and your own personal. I think the chances will be pretty slim. Most guys stiill wear them since they already had them. Good luck though.

      You should be able to find a decent used Cairns leather New Yorker out there somewhere as they do turn up from time to time. Contact the Fire Store in PA; they have advertised used New Yorkers in the past.

        Search on Ebay for cairns leather. There's usually at least four or five for sale. Or, I'll see you mine - $1,000 and it's all yours.

          I also recommend the Fire Store. They are about 20 minutes east of me, last time I was there to buy my new natural New Yorker, they had many used New Yorkers there.

              Just a bit of info. I tried www.thefirestore.com last week. One of the reps emailed me to inform me that they no longer deal in used leather helmets. sorry.

              Stay safe.

                  Which leather helmet do you think looks better on the head and doesnt sit to high on your head. I personally like the cairns New Yorker and the Cairns Sam Houston but i have never tried them on.
