Choosing a Visor: Why we recommend High-Temperature Tuffshield®.
Although it costs you no more than the clear and smoke visor options, we at TheFireStore.com believe the Tuffshield visor offers distinct advantages. It is the original equipment visor supplied on all new Cairns Defender helmets for some very good reasons:
1. Tuffshield is significantly more heat resistant. Like our Hi-Temperature Bourke Eyeshields, the Tuffshield Defender visor is heat-resistant up to 500°. The other visors will start to melt at about 345°.
2. Tuffshield is a heavier grade material with more impact resistance. As the name implies, it’s just tougher.
3. The slight yellowish tint helps you see better, day or night. Like a pair of amber shooting glasses, they filter out harsh wavelengths and glare, improving contrast and revealing more detail under all lighting conditions—including looking at flames.
4. They cost you no more. We’ve been able to purchase these superior eyeshields at a very favorable price. As always, we are pleased to pass the savings along to you.

Cairns and MSA are the same company. The replacement version of the defenders should fit in your 1044.
Doug, sorry this is for the 1010 and 1044 helmets only (CARINS) No Bullard, Ben II, Lion, Paul Conway Cairns only, also no NY or Sam Houston helmets
you will need to purchase a complete replacement kit, that includes everything except the shell of the helmet.
The short answer is no.
We don't know what you are referring to by "PRO" the Carins MSA Defender exceeds the NFPA standard for eye protection with or without any other eye protection. Any helmet that has the full Face Shield, Goggles(NFPA) or the Defender meet the NFPA standard. Helmets with Flip Downs such as Bourkes do not meet NFPA.
This will fit the 1010 and 1044 helmets only, and only if they were purchased with the Defender installed from Cairns when the helmet was new. If you have a 1010 or 1044 with out the defender you can purchase the up grade kit P/N 10077112, this will not fit any other helmets, just the 1010 or 1044 only.
