    I just put my helmet in my basment with a fan blowing in it overnight and by morning it smells fine.

      I wear this helmet for 48 hours a week for 48 weeks a year, its not something that comes out once a week. drying it does nothing, its already dry!

        48 hours a week for 48 weeks?

        Good God man, does your FD require you to sit in the truck in full gear for your whole duty tour?

        PS: one word: Febreeze!

            I was insinuating that this is for work, not some volunteer fire dept. I dont wear a leather helmet when i volunteer, not unless they want to pay for it!

              Yeah not one of them there volunteer departments ! I would bet that many more volunteers have leathers - just by the numbers - as the vast majority of firefighters are volunteers in this great country.

                Leather helmet: I think firefighter. If you are not a career firefighter, you have to tell us where you wear a leather helmet 48 hours a week 48 weeks out of the year.

                PS: I know a more than a few volunteers that wear leather lids instead of their VFD's standard "tactical tupperware" issued helmets!

                          you would think since you use your helmet so much and im sure you're not the only member of this incredibly busy career department you might be able to ask someone in your station

                              Thanks for the help! Apparently the rest of the world is a bunch of choir boys! I guess none of you have picked up a crack whore at 530 am for a fast heartbeat in 98 degree heat! And it wasnt meant to be offensive it was a joke! Sorry y'all didnt get it! And as for the guys in my firehouse, they dont care what crawls out of their lid, im just a tad bit worried when my helmet smells like a pair of lacrosse gloves!

                              Cheers!
