    Default Cairns 1044 Reviews???

    I am looking into purchasing a traditional helmet and am leaning towards a 1010 as I like the look and fit of them comapared to most other helmets. But, Cairns has this new 1044 out and it looks good, but is there anyone out there who could give me a heads up (no pun intended) on this helmet.

    It's exactly the same as the 1010. Here's the description from thefirestore.com:

    "The 1044 is the latest helmet offering from the leader in firefighter head protection. It is a traditional style helmet, similar to the popular 1010. It shares the same components as the 1010 except the shell is different. The 1044 shell is made of through colored Duraglas while the 1010 shell is made of the same Duraglas and is painted."


    Basically, that gives it a matte finish instead of a shiny finish.

    One of my friends just got a 1044, and my opinion is that it looks better than the 1010, and it costs a good $40 less too! Though, if you ask me, I'd take leather any day.....
