    Default Honeywell EV1 Traditional Helmet

    Has anyone tried out the new EV1 Traditional helmet from Honeywell? What did you think of it compared to the 1010/1044? We are interested in buying some helmets with the defender style eye protection, and I can't seem to find anyone with experience with the EV1.

    Honeywell is merely a "new" label on existing brands. In this case, Honeywell manages the Morning Pride product line. The EV1 helmet is a Morning Pride helmet with Honeywell's name on it.

    It is an entirely new helmet. This is not a Ben2 as you seem to propose.

    I didn't say it was a Ben 2. Reread it again.

    One of our members bought the EV1 traditional helmet, They are light weight, low riding and very comfortable, the EZ touch shield is nice. BUT.... The inner suspension has a 6 point adjustment in the front which work good, The back half of suspension is held in be (as they put it) hook and loop.. "VELCRO" the VELCRO is stuck to the impact liner of the helmet with a peal away velcro tape. The velcro sticky tape comes right off after you have wore this helmet in a couple fire's. This is just a very poor designee if you ask me. Its obvious the moron that designed this has never fought fire in the real world
