Leather Fire Helmet Shields
Looking for help in the area of leather shields. We are getting ready to purchase our entire company new leathers, black for firefighters and white for officers. Need some input for shield styles and colors. Do you use numbers or medallions? Passports? Any help or comments are appreciated. Send pictures if you like. Thanks and stay safe.

My department issues the generic ones that come with the helmet but many of the guys buy their own with the company number on them. I just bought an FDNY style shield from Sam Brown Shields. I am very pleased with the shield. The frame and insert are black with a white number. I have a red panel at the bottom with my city in it. The shield looks great, was less expensive than others and I had it in less than a week. The web site is www.sambrownshields.com

Paul Conway shields are the way to go. They are all leather and very very durable. I bought a cheaper style before and the letters started fading only after about a year or so.
We have Ben Franklin II's and use the Ben Franklin style front.
We have 3 panels on the front.
Top panel: Rank
Middle: 3 digit radio number(stiched on) ex: 805
Firefighters: Black front
White numbers in middle
Officers: White front
Black numbers in middle
If you go to the paul conway website, they have several designs to choose from and you can preview your choice with the cool preview feature they have. You can see what it looks like before you buy.
Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Paul Conway all the way! Can't find any better. Also just bought the coolest little keychain custom made from them. Very easy to order.Life is only temporary, but freedom goes on forever. God bless those who gave all.
