The 60 & 70's Helmets were made by Cairns Brothers in Clifton New Jersey. The leather ones.

Words on the street is when the new FDNY Leathers are approved for optional purchase the price tag MAY be close to $700.00.
I remember when you could buy them for $150 and my Dad bought his first one when in FDNY for $25. What Leather Helmets are they going to?

Perhaps $700 now, but how about after it's condemned in ten years per NFPA/OSHA?
I'm all for leather, but when I was offered a lighter, better-fitting composite helmet when the new generation of leathers was coming in I jumped at it.
