  • Medium or Large?

    Im ordering a sam houston and am not sure what size to get. I had a medium before, but i sold it to a buddy of mine, thing is when i wore a mask and hood, the helmet was very tight on my head, i didnt use the chinstrap, just the ratchet to hold it on my head(i know thats not safe, but anyways) just wondering if anyone on here had a medium and went to a large or vise-versa thanks in advance for the replies

    Yeah. One time I tried on a large and it was too big, so I got a medium. A pal of mine with a watermelon head tried on a medium. Of coarse it was too small, so he got a large.

    Stranger than fiction......huh?

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

          E7T1, just a suggestion pal. Go to a dealer that sells firefighter ppe's. There has to be one somewhere near you. Try one on and see what fits the best.

          I still have, but can't use, my old leather N5 and tin lizzie, that the inside was the size of your noggin. Like a hat size and all. So there wasn't any adjustment like they are now.


          Just another idea. Do you know any one that has a helmet like you are wanting for Christmas?? Maybe they will let you try theirs on to see how it fits. Just a idea.

          It's like a head gasket, which ever fits you the best, go with it!!

          Bob any size lid will do you pal!! :-)
