Some people over the years have been asking where to
order leather helmet shields?
And I found a good source. I hope by sharing this,
I am not breaking the TOS. (I dont work there)
Here is the link- www.sambrownshields.com
Nice stuff, Bou

I don't know anything about Sam Brown shields, but I'd take a Paul Conway over Cairns any day (I have both).
The Conway keychains can be ordered without the hole on request. They're great for kids who want a toy helmet that looks just like the one dad(or mom)wears.
Anyone have experience with Shields of Valor?ullrichk

I have ordered mine through thefirestore.com. They come out looking awesome, especially the reflective lettering.

I dont know who makes the best helmet shields out there,

I like the "what you see is what you get" ordering. The lettering is decals rather than silk-screened so I don't know if it will hold up well. I'll keep you posted.FTM-PTB-DTRT

The reflective letters are decals, the normal non-reflective ones are silk-screened. So far the reflective letters have held up well, on both the work helmet and volunteer helmet.*Old FH Forum SN: WFDjr1*

I ordered a shield of valor from thefirestore.com. It's actually really good. I got it silk screened with the number in the middle sewn on. I didn't get the patent leather, just the regular one. It's pretty thick leather too.MFD Truck 2

Go ahead and procure one and see what it looks like. If you are happy or not, please come back in here and give a complete report. If I you give your honest opinion and like it, then I may but one for myself!

You mean these from Sam Brown?
06-13-2005, 12:05 PM #14
There is another company that makes custom leather keychain shields, i'll see if i can find the link and name of the company when i get home. If somebody can beat me to it, they advertise in Fire Trader.

Ok, I posted one site here and everyone else wants to go
to a major company to get something. This guy, Sam Brown
is a retired Fireman and makes quality stuff and will fix
So if your order isnt right, I am sure he will work it out
for you vs. waiting on hold with a big place.
PS- He isnt based in California. (I know some of you hate
the West coast) Hes in Kentucky. Check him out.

Paul Conway Shields owner is still a line fire lieutenant. He also stands behind his work. He's also not west coast.

Just my two cents....Had a Sam Brown on a Ben2 in a training burn( hay & pallets, not too hot) and the dang thing SHRANK. The point at the top of the shield doesn't even reach the birdbeak anymore. Have had good results with Paul Conway & Firestores ShieldsCapt. Todd J. Matthews

Fire-Trader has the Leather Shield Keychains in Custom, American Flag, and Gold Leaf, for $15.00 each.
Several of our guys have the Sam Browns, haven't heard anything bad about them yet.
