    Default Skid Lids...

    Talking about helmets of course.

    What do you folks know/think/hear of the Fire Kinght helmet. There is a lot of interest in this helmet from my departments.

    Anybody have this helmet as standard issue? How does it perform, advantages, disadvantages?

    The traditionalist seem to hate it, but the tech savy guys realy brag it up.

    What do you think?

    Way back when I was a Chief in my volunteer department our one (1) paid firefighter had one as well as a traditional style. We had an agreement...he could wear it as long as I was not on the unit with him!
