    In reality it is a moot point anyways. If your FD requires your turn outs to be NFPA you, in order to be in compliance with YOUR FD's regs, must buy the N6A Sam Houston. If it doesn't require NFPA try them both on at a dealer and buy the one you like.

    I am sure MassFireGuy is salivating over waiting to call me the NFPA police, frankly I don't care what the NFPA says. BUT, I do CARE about what MY FD says. If they have adopted the NFPA standards, or OSHA standards for PPE then THEY have set the standard and it is to my benefit to be in compliance with MY FD's standards.

    Or you can choose to totally disregard them and play the odds. I know what I will do and you can do what you wish knowing the full story.

    Be safe either way.
    I was waiting to dial the NFPA police at your notice

          Im pretty sure its that they are both NFPA approved but NOT OSHA. The N6A has the eye goggles so its OSHA approved as the N5A is not.

            Sorry WRONG.

            The N5A New Yorker is OSHA approved, not NFPA.
            The N6A is NFPA approved.

            This info is right from the Cairns/MSA website.
            Crazy, but that's how it goes

            Maybe it's not too late

                  Some people neglect the fact that in order for the N6A to be NFPA compliant it must have:

                  Goggles or Full face shield

                  Bourkes alone make it also OSHA only.

                  So the people here are aware of this.
