When you need top-quality, safe, and comfortable head protection, rely on Phenix Technology, Inc., a company founded by veteran firefighters with over 40 years of valuable industry experience and a wealth of design knowledge. A direct result of their decades of experience, the Phenix TL-2 Traditional Leather Helmet with Miller Upgrade is an excellent selection for a firefighter who is seeking the unmistakably vintage look and top levels of performance of real leather. Here’s why:
The Phenix TL-2 Traditional Leather Helmet with Miller Upgrade’s exceptionally durable, soft, and flexible leather, which is constructed from the finest, top-grade cowhide, creates a loving homage to its 19th century firefighting roots, thereby providing a taste of nostalgia carefully combined with the modern amenities that contemporary PPE has to offer. Thanks to its soft, flexible leather shell, the Phenix TL-2 Traditional Leather Helmet with Miller Upgrade can easily endure as much or even more abuse than early leather helmets and more than a great number of today’s finest modern composites.
Resilient, raised crossover beams give bolstered protection from direct, overhead impacts. You won’t need to worry about getting hurt from falling debris or other objects hurting your head, as its brim is specifically designed to withstand such impacts: Its longer rear brim will “flex” when hit, thereby avoiding any potential neck injuries stemming from sudden jolts after the helmet is struck.
By employing modern, vegetal-tanning techniques, you can rely on the Phenix TL-2 Traditional Leather Helmet with Miller Upgrade’s leather to not crack, giving you only the best in terms of value. Its unmatched levels of comfort and stability are achieved thanks to Phenix’s traditional designs, low center of gravity, reduced profile, and ergonomic activity.
While already tough, the Phenix TL-2 Traditional Leather Helmet with Miller Upgrade’s veg-tanned leather shell is even more durable because of its fire-retardant paint that is specially formulated for leather products. Minor scrapes, gouges, and other cosmetic damages can be easily touched up, all while showing minimum amounts of wear and tear. Some additional specs include the following:
- multiple choices of eye protection, including ESS Goggles only, Bourkes only, or ESS Goggles and Bourkes
