    Default G5A help

    Whats up guys, I'm stuck and Cairns (MSA) was absolutely no help. So Im refurbing my cairns G5A. The liner is nasty, and it needs to be replaced. But my helmet has no size marked on the tag inside and the liner inself has no markings.

    I can order a new liner from the fire store no problemo, but have no idea what size to get. Any ideas? Could someone with a G5a measure the inside of theirs and I could compare to figure it out? Thanks Guys

    call up your dealer and see if you can ship them the old one to match it up.

    If that is the case, why is the liner and everything dirty and worn?

    No I am not, but presentaion helmets wasn't meant to be worn. They are just that a presentaion helmet.

    That FD is risking their members by do so. They are not the same as firefighting helmets.
