    Default Cairns helmet size adjustment

    I was just issued a new helmet which looks the same as my old one but the sizing inside is much smaller. I adjusted the nob in the back to fully open but still tight without my hood or mask. Looking all over the Internet can't find anything on how I can adjust the sizing inside it...it says on Internet it can adjust but doesn't show pictures how? Don't want to mess around with it without knowing what to change. Any help with pictures would be appreciated!

    What does it say in the user manual that's supposed to accompany every new helmet?
    "Nemo Plus Voluptatis Quam Nos Habant"

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    It shows a picture of the interior straps and says it can be adjusted but doesn't really explain how?

    Traveling this year? I think they can shrink your head in South America.

    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.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    If it has the defender shield, the interior is actually smaller than what you have had in the past. Also, the 880 is smaller. If this is not the case, use a vise and shrink your melon.
