SKU: G5A//Mixed Availability

Details

Since 1836, Cairns & Brother has been the original manufacturer of leather firefighting helmets.

The Cairns G5A has retained the same authentic look and quality that generation after generation of firefighters have relied on. Original style brass front holder with the impressive brim details. Helmet is standard with stainless steel D-ring. Helmet insides feature a four way suspension system and liner without earflaps. This is similar to the older Model 5A worn years ago and still being worn by the "Old Timers."

Lightweight and comfortable fit are the hallmark of this most desirable presentation helmet. With a lower dome and longer rear brim than today's leather firefighting helmets, the G5A is like the helmet your father wore. Not recommended for firefighting! This helmet is not OSHA or NFPA compliant.
  • Medium: 7 1/8 - 7 1/2
  • Large: 7 5/8 - 8 3/8
  • "6" Leather Fronts are sold separately.
Note: Front pins for leather fronts are not included.

I ordered this helmet as a gift I was quite excited especially because of the old style shield holder. That is not what comes on it. They advised that the warehouse has changed to the new carved eagle but have not updated the pictures.

Just like the good old days

Amazing helmet, very light, built just like the old '80s 5a. I would recommend getting the old school brass for the front, they come with a carved eagle now. Great product.

Q&A's:

"do you have this product in stock in white? Also do you have a picture of this helmet in white?"

Yes we have the G5AWM in stock, and the G5AWL on order, the difference being large vs. medium. and no we do not have a picture of a white model, the only difference between the N5A NY white helmet on our web site is the L/Y reflective Tet's. that come on the new helmets, that's the closest i can get you to a picture.

"Does the G5A come ready to install a chinstrap?"

No

"Does this helmet have a suspension?"

Yes it has suspension. I recommend talkimg out the earflaps liner and replacing it with one that doesn't. It makes it lighter but its personal preferance.

"What does the g5a weigh?"

About 2.5 lbs. with the shield, strap, and eagle. Obviosuly you load up otjer junk...it gets heavier. Its no where near 48 to 60 0z.

"Does the helmet come with the helmet front hardware or does it need to be ordered as such?"

It comes with the carved eagle. You have to order everything else. It come ne chqnged with many other hardeware just be careful for the fitting. You also need to buy the screws that hold the shield on.

"Does the G5A come ready to install a chinstrap?"

You have to buy the chunstrap clips and chinstrap. If you want the officiql,factory look you also need the brass rivets

"does g5a presentation helmet come in a boston bend?"

It can if you do it youreslf. This helmet has to be heated up slowly at about 160 F. Then checked every 5 minutes for pliability. If you do it....in the oven sit in on a towel. Otheriwse you'll leave grill marks. Or you could do this on your first job/ worker. Just becareful this model isn't meamt to take 500 F ....it will ruin it.
