    Default Best Traditional Helmet?

    What brand/model is the most comfortable and lightest weight traditional style helmet? I've tried on Bullard, Paul Conway, and the Ben II+, and it seems like the Ben II is lighter. What do you think?

    Actually, if you do a search, you'll see that this was discussed just a sort while back. Just search under helmet, or best helmet. From what I remember it seems that a lot of folks though the Ben 2 was supposed to be light etc.

    LOL, now that's what I'm talking about

    One good fire and you don't have to worry about the helmet anymore.. it's gone.

    I made a nice little helmet for my kiddo using those. Take about 6 or 8 of 'em, stack 'em one on top of the other, then run several wraps of electric tape around the brim edge. When you're done it looks like the edge bead on a 1010, and the helmet will last much longer. Sort of a "hints from heloise (sp)" helmet made easy. LOL
