    Default How much does your helmet weigh?

    Traditionals only, please.

    Leatherheads: please list manufacture date, weight, and make/model.

    Composites: Make/model and weight.



    I WANT A LEATHER!! LoL. Just not sure how much more/less the Phenix weighs versus everything else.


    Kevin from Tallahasee: I plan on contacting Dave down your way if I go Phenix.
    Put THAT in your pump and flow it.

    i will tell you the phenix is lighter than any late model helmet available.

    Lighter than a Conway "Leatherglass"
    Lighter than a New N5A or N6A which are both comparably as heavy as the Conway. I dont have exact weights.

    Thanks.

    I have just recently retired that shield. It has taken a pretty good beating and was getting pretty smoked up, so I put it with my collection in my den before it got to the point where I couldn't even see the paint anymore.

    The helmet is holding up fantastic! Not a single problem or complaint.

    With all the junk on my lid it's prolly about 80 some odd ounces..it's an N6A Mfg date was in 05, one wedge, a garrity light, and a few masonry nails add to the weight. With nothing....maybe 65oz or so.

    So I found the answer to my question...


    My Bullard USTM weighs 57oz.

    The LEATHER I want weighs 55oz.



    I think we have a winner.


    SO...next question...anyone around Tennessee know where I can put a Phenix on my head and try it out? (No, not in a fire..althought that would be GREAT...)

    A store in the "hood" section of Downtown Nashville had a really old one on display and I was not that impressed. It had wrinkles all on it but I would say that is from where people did the bronx bend on it and then tried to flatten it back out. I will see if I can find the address of the place or not. If you call them they will say they don't stock them which they don't but they still have one on display.

    Default My helmets so far (minus my yellow rookie helmet)

    Non-traditional: cairns 360s w/ faceshield. Mfg: 2003? Weight: 42.
    Traditional: cairns 880 Chicago w/bourkes and goggles. Mfg: 2007. Weight: 61.

    Like the specs on the phenix leather but have not put my hands on one. Be sure the weights you are looking @ are configured the way you want. I believe msa/cairns advertises my 880 @ 47.

    Hope this helps.

    He wants you to take it to a laboratory that has a machine capable of measuring specific gravity... and see just how many grams your helmet weighs just so he can find out which one weigh's less


    or he could just go to the manufacturer's webpage and get the exact specific detail or even call them...

    Johnny also says that if you want the weight of his helmet, you can come down South Lawn and measure it....

    This nerd knows because it's printed inside the helmet.

    Simple math mostly...it's printed on the mfg's label. Then I just added the estimated weight of the junk I have on there.

    Somebody's been paying attention. Clever.



    I've never been stuck on scene long enough to red the labels inside my helmet, and the literature that comes with the equipment seems boring.

    Situational awareness.

    Hey, I had to do SOMETHING while waiting on the glowworms to show up.

    And I like to read all the neat ways I can die, according to the literature.

    SHE has tried the websites, and SHE does want to find out the lightest. I'd like to know that the overtime money is going to the right one that won't break my neck. Thanks.
