    Default Helmets in Backdraft

    I was watching part of Backdraft the other day and was wondering if anyone knew what helmets were being worn. In some shots they appeared to be leather and then in others they didn't. I'm pretty sure they're Cairns, but I cant pick out which model.....Any help?

    The question should be.. who gives a fat rat's rump?

    They wore helmets? I thought at the first chance possible they were throwing their helmets through windows and ripping off their t-shirts aka Captain Kirk style.

    Ya, I seem to recall seeing that too. Always thought that a fire helmet was for use as a frisbee till I actually started doing the job.

    We used 880's for a long time and most would've had em in the movie. And for the Backdraft bashers - please don't tell me you liked that sissy, crybaby movie ladder 49?
