    I believe the ones our department ordered for us are from Sam (would have to pull it off my helmet to check) and have held up well.

    I also have two Shields of Valor ones, but neither saw much use. One was on my old industrial helmet that was really only used in training, and the other I had on my department helmet for about 2 days before the new ones arrived (miscommunication). Still, they're both well made.

    Nothing beats a Paul Conway shield.

    Better quality and sure is durable.

    I've always had good luck with conway shields to the point that they are now standard issue to my paid and my volunteer departments. Doing a web search one day, I came across www.parksales.com/fdfronts.htm This is the only place I've seen that will do Boston style shields and the turn around time seems to be pretty reasonable as well. If anyone has had experience with these, I'm interested to know how they hold up. Just thought I'd toss in my 2 cents and another option for ya'll. Cheers, Clay
