    These forums are going down hill. People ask for advice and get grief. If you have nothing constructive to say then don't type anything. I am seeing common names popping up in these threads that lead me to think they are trolls.

    OP, I have had bad luck with Phenix. Others on here have had great luck. I know Cairns is owned by MSA now, but I would still stick with the original. Get the Cairns. Peoples biggest gripe with the Cairns is the paint chips off. Well, to me, that means you work. It adds character and will eventually tell a story of a great career.

    Good luck.

    Lately.. you don't need work to make the paint on a Cairns leather lid chip off... it will flake and chip just looking at it!
