    Default It might be sold soon, but I'll post it anyway

    Here's my TL-2 that's for sale for $325 plus shipping. I might have it sold already, but I figured I'd post it anyway. Email me if you want to know if it's sold. inkonscene@gmail.com

    Ravage, Sorry if I offended your ego Buddy, I guess thats what I get for trying to be a good Brother.I dont know you from Adam, so you could be a salty 22 year vet or a 2 month probie, who wants to buy into tradition and figured "the Older the better". Like it has been stated before its your noggin your a big boy, and we will do what we want in this job. we recently had a guy buy a pre ratchet, pre MSA Cairns New Yorker on ebay, but our Training/ Safety Chief told him "Not a snowballs chance in hell" was he gonna authorize its use. $450 down the drain.well the probie got caught with it at a fire and was threatend with termination for going against a Chiefs direct orders. So yeah ,I was looking out for you, because some in our field , dont realize these small details. But like I also stated they are incredible and light. So , thanks you taught me a lesson.Stay safe

    It happened two shifts after he approached the training Chief about it,so it was still fresh in his mind. The fire happened to be in his Neighborhood so he showed up on scene to scope it out.Tough break for the new guy. The same Chief has a fit about Bourkes, if he catches you with them on a helmet, you will get a written and get your yellow metro helmet reisued to you for six months, pretty pathetic in my opinion. The flip down shield kept breaking on my issued ust-6, so i through a set of goggle on there to make him happy. He is in the drop so not much longer.....

    Some Chiefs take this crap WAY to far. It's like the dumb reflective vest that you see guys wearing. Pretty soon you'll see them wearing them in fires. Idiots.

    I don't know, can't really make a connection between the two. Wearing a vest when working on a roadway makes sense. The whole helmet debacle, not so much.

    I'm one of those guys. If it's something that keeps me from becoming a Kenworth hood ornimate, I'll wear it. I'll leave it on the rig for the 2nd alarm, though...

    Hey guys quick question on how the helmet rides.

    My n5a has the ratchet pulled out, the pad at the top etc, and sits nice and low, very comfortable. Unfortunately, my department is big on NFPA rating, so I can no longer where the N5a. I tried on my buddies tl2 and while I like it, it seems to have sat higher than I would have liked. Is there any way for it to sit lower? can the pad at the top be taken out like in the cairns n5a? It might have been how I had the earflaps as well, as i didn't tuck them up into the helmet, and rather over the ratcher, which might have made it feel weird.

    Also, am I reading this right, they make a version without a ratchet?

    The suspension adjusts up and down as needed. How is everyone getting these low riding helmets to sit right when wearing a mask? If I wear mine too low it rides on the mask instead of being supported by the suspension. Not a good thing.

    oh you can? How do you adjust it up and down? I thought when you turn the ratchet it just adjusts the circumfrance around your head? Guess I need to look at it again.

    There are other adjustment points other than the ratchet so the entire suspension can be moved. The other option to consider is the nape strap instead of the ratchet. It may site lower depending on your heads shape. Let me know if you need more information.
