    I've been reading this thread and was wondering how it holds up to extreme heat? I teach fire attack techniques quite often and was wondering if anyone has had any issues with the paint or leather cracking.

    Any complaints or issues with the rachet or suspension system?

    Looks good in the pictures so far, so thanks to everyone for posting them!

    Mine has seen a good bit of heat. It is holding up extremely well. Zero complaints.

    What are you waiting for, a good woman or a Phenix TL2?

    Both, a good woman wearing a Phenix TL2. The best of both worlds.

    Not that I'm looking for a woman (I'm Female). I'm looking for a Man (A Real Man).

    Ha, my helmet. My wife is great, she finally gave in and let me buy it. She got tired of me talking about it.

    My wife got me mine for Christmas. (Now you know why I married her)

    Love the lid. Very comfortable, no complaints. I have beaten it up on training a bit. Banging around the smoke maze left it with no paint chips, or major dings.

    Unfortunately it has not been in any hot fires yet.

    I think I have read your response but Why is it exactly that you dislike this helmet?

    To be completely honest let me tell you what I like about it. I think the filigree is nice.

    1. What I do not like is the suspension. It seems to be some cheaply made. The front slides up in the helmet consantly. I tried to put velcro on it to keep it in place and it always seems to eventually creep back up.

    2. The ratchet never stays tight.

    3. Cosmetically, I think it looks big and goofy on me and a few other people who wear it at my house. Is it heavier than a Cairns? I think so.

    4. The leather wrinkles on the side brim and the back brim.

    Sorry to air this, but you did ask. It may just be me because it seems like everyone else likes theirs. I am aware that Cairns has its flaws too, but I seem to like it better.

    That is totally cool. I am sorry you dont like our product we are currently working to resolve everybodys opinion of our suspension system. But with everybodys variances in head size and shape it is a long process.


    For the rachet it usually is just a loose screw in the back tighten that a little bit and I think you will no longer have that problem.


    As for as the leather wrinkling that is because it is not treated like other helmets keeping it soft increases its shock attiuation and reduces weight.

    then as weight goes, helmet for helmet it is lighter than any other leather out there of course there are variances for each helmet because each cow is different.

    Thank you for your time I appreciate your comments I hope that you will give us another try in the future

    So what you are saying is the more "juice" in the cow the heavier it is. I have no complaints so far. Although a month after i got it I was promoted to driver and the only time it gets worn is when I ride up to officer.
