    How did you ever make out with this? I just called the company and they qoted me $452. I think I am going to jump on it.

    Any other thoughts on these out there? Anyone?

    I have the first TL2 in my Dept. It's a nice lid. My biggest concern is that the suspension and head ratchet don't seem as beefy as the Cairns but don't get me wrong, it is standing up just fine. I just wish it was more like the Cairns suspension. Other than that, its a great helmet. I love the soft plyable leather. It has a different shape everytime I throw it on. I haven't had it quit a year yet and the paint is a little worn. For the deal, you can't go wrong. I recommend it. I do believe its true leather, wrapped around some sort of shell.

    I'm trying to get some info on these lids, but have so far been unsuccessful.

    I want to know if the leather is dyed or painted, and if it's painted, how well does it hold up? My newest Cairns is chipping paint like an old Harlem tenement.

    Is the TL2 at least as comfortable as a New Yorker?

    Also, is the brim on the rear longer than the Cairns? In the few pictures I've seen it appears to be, but I can't tell for sure.

    Finally, I would like to see what is considered to be a "good deal" on a TL2.
    The only price I have been able to get so far is just over 5 bills.

    Thanks for any input you can give.

    Capt! Going away from Cairns! Holy crap. With your endorsment I think the sales of Phenix will rise to include places other than CA. Sorry Bou . Atleast you're sticking with leather.

    Out of curosity, is the Phenix TL-2 a true leather like the N5A and N6A or a composite leather like the Paul Conway American Hertiage?

    I tried on a TL-2 Phenix leather. It is very lightweight and comfortable.

    I have no problems with either of my Cairns leather lids... I just thought I'd go for something different next time.

    My next lid will probably be a Phenix TL2*.






    *Bou just had palpitations on reading that!
    So did I!!!!!

    In your opinion Gonz, how do they compare to Cairns lids?

    As a side note, I recently removed the crown pad from my newest N6A. Man, oh man does it ever fit better!
