Absolutely perfect!


Suprised my boyfriend for Christmas with this helmet! I got an email saying it was on back order and wouldn't be in for at least a month, but ended up getting it 5 days after purchase! The company is great to work with and sell only the finest and best quality products! Definitely recommend this helmet!



Great helmet. Feels very light. Very comfortable for long periods of time. Sits lower than a Cairns 1010 and is not as wide or long in the back. Only problem is the chinstrap mount on the top side of the brim takes over the prime spot to mount lights. One other note. The goggle mounts are not the same as in the picture. The real mounts are the ones under the brim like the ones on all the other helmet manufacturers.

I would buy this helmet over and over


hey I bought this helmet quite a while ago and I have had everything from ashes to floors falling on this helmet and it is still looking brand new. I love this helmet so much and I can't wait to get a new one when this one falls apart or is no longer to be able to be used in service.

No helmet better. Period.


This helmet is great. UI come from a volunteer company that averages 200 calls a year. Mostly structure fires. Anyhow we have some cairns 1010 and the Bullard ust. When you first get the helmet it sets around your head, which I like unlike the cairs 1010 which feels like it's setting on top of your head. But I played with the head band and you can make it feel like the 1010. This is a great helmet. Haven't gotten to use it in any fires yet (waiting for the shield) but I have worn it around the house and it feels great. But choose what's best for your melon because you only get one.

Bulard UST-6M


As Equipment officer for a small Fire Department we decided on another brand of helmet. I had 2 Firefighters with a very large heads and this was the only brand that would fit. The helmet color we got was matte yellow for firefighter and matte Black for engineer . The helmet color is a very light pastel yellow and the matte black is almost grey. Other than the flat color this helmet balance's well. The Bourkes are an off brand and are junk they don't flip down with one hand , the goggle mount is fantastic and needs to be this way on all helmets very low profile.

Great helmet, great value!


Purchased this helmet 4 years ago. Been through just about everything with quite a bit of interior firefighting. Even banged in head with falling 2x6, and it absorbed it like it was nothing. Very comfortable, quickly adjustable with or without SCBA. Very durable. All that for an unbeatable price. What more could you ask?

Great helmet I like it alot more than my old Morning Pride.


I wear this helmet at fires, car accidents, high angle rescues, and many other things and its simply the best the price is great its a tough helmet.

Great Choice!


Using this as a Memorial Helmet for the State Firefighters' Association!

I bought this helmet to replace my department issue one and instantly fell in love with it. its extremely light and sits well on my head when im wearing it. I honestly can't find anything bad with this helmet.
