The Sam Houston

What do people say about the famous N6A Sam Houston helmet? Let's see!

Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend seeing as he has wanted one for six years and it did not disappoint!!! He says it is even better than he imagined. And I feel better knowing he no longer has a plastic helmet. 

    By far the best thing i own...I take great pride knowing how my helmet was built and the tradition it carries.

    I bought this helmet as a gift because I knew the recipient liked this kind of helmet. He is very impressed with how sturdy, and even heavy, it feels when held in the hands; but how lightweight it feels when worn.

    Love my leather! Slightly heavier that my 1000 and 1010, but has a better balance to it so the extra weight is a non issue!

    Convinced yet? No worries, we'll keep telling you about it.
    The original leather helmet. Handcrafted to meet today’s performance requirements. 
      • Hand crafted 100% leather shell
      • An engineered impact cap of high-temperature rigid urethane foam with a tough Lexan outer dome and an ABS inner liner. Provides advanced thermal, impact, and penetration protection. Designed to increase protection at the sides where it’s needed most.
      • Cairns' six-way overhead strap suspension system reduces shock transmission at the top of the helmet while providing a snug, comfortable fit.
      • Sateen cotton liner with leather brow patch sewn to high density foam backing around the entire circumference of the liner
      • Soft black Nomex chinstrap with one-hand quick release buckle and postman slide allows quick and easy adjustment.
      • Three-position, rear-ratchet height adjustment ensures a secure and comfortable fit, with or without SCBA gear, for all head sizes
      • Jumbo earlaps for increased neck coverage and protection.
      • Larger diameter helmet hanger fits on larger hooks and racks.
      • Insurance against fireground damage with Cairns 5-year shell replacement warranty.
    They truly are hand-crafted to perfection, each one. 

    You can choose your eye protection depending what your department specifies or mandates. We've got goggles, bourkes, a 4" faceshield--you name it.
