Great Helmet for the larger heads


Was just issued one of these helmets through my department after using a a Bullard PX. Can believe how much lighter and better fitting this helmet is. I have a larger sized head and the fitting adjustments on here really help customize the fit. It's very well designed and from what I can see well built helmet.


"How much does this helmet weigh? I'am looking to buy either the Phoenix brand or the Paul Conway, depending on weight. Thank You Scott"

The Conway/Lion helmet weighs 3.5 Lbs. (actual 3.4375)

"is this helmet NFPA compliant?"

Yes it is, it meets the NFPA 1971 standard, not sure what edition it comes under, 2008 I think

"We are using this legacy 5 in our our fire station. Can you please send me a link or any supplier online for the 4"" face shield for this kind of brand and model. thanks."

Here you go: http://www.thefirestore.com/store/product.aspx/productId/10884/Faceshield-4-x-150-Apec-Thumbwheel-Style-/

"Is this helmet for Wildland or Structural Firefighting?"

This is a structural helmet.

"Do you have replacement ratchets for this helmet? is this a warranty item?"

Chief, there are 2 different part numbers for the replacement ratchets; # LFH991 is a Black Knit # LFH993 is a Deluxe Leather As far as warranty when was the helmet made, you should be able to find that information inside the helmet, all helmets are required to have tags on the inside stating when they were made.
