Impact Cap
The NEW impact cap has fewer components, making it easier to maintain and clean, as well as upgrade with the Defender Visor. It also accommodates a wider range of head sizes from 6-3/8 to 8-3/4! The nape strap adjusts for further customization quickly and without the use of tools.

Retractable MSA Cairns Defender® Visor
North America's first (and still the best) NFPA 1971 and ANSI/ISEA Z87.1 impact-rated, integral visor. The Defender Visor was designed with firefighters in mind. The entire lens stows when not in use (so it can’t be lost), and can be deployed the instant it’s needed—even with a gloved hand. Replacement of the lens does not require special tools or disassembly of the helmet. All of these benefits make the Defender Visor the best-selling firefighting eye protection in the market.

Soft Goods
Simple to replace or take out to launder. Kits include mesh laundering bag and are available for various combinations of liners and ear laps with easy to order part numbers for extra soft goods and kits. PBI/Kevlar or Bloodborne Pathogen materials, as well as underchin extension, also available for earlaps.

Helmet Shell
Flexes with impact to absorb energy with a lower profile than many competitors’ helmets. Fiberglass composite can be painted and is available as the 1010 (eight colors). Unpainted shells are available as the 1044 (four colors).

Suspension and Retention Systems
Unique Shell Release System (SRS) helps to ensure impact cap stays on your head if helmet shell is dislodged. Exclusive headband interface provides easy adjustment to fit a variety of SCBAs and provides a deep, stable fit while allowing enough crown clearance for maximum impact protection. Standard in 6-point configuration.
