I should have started with this topic from the start, please diregaurd the Dual Purpose Helmet thread.
I am researching the Phenix helmets trying to find out which model is best suited to dual purpose use for both wildfire and structure fire.
This seems to be a common practice in California, and I am interested in the experiences and recomendations from Caifornia firefighters.
Is there much differnece between the different 1500 series helmets (G, F, CA)?
Which helmet does the California departments use? Is it always the CA?
We dont need the earflaps as we would be useing the hotshield ultrshrouds we already have.
Just how hot are these helmets?
