American Heritage Helmet with Low Profile Brass Eagle Shield HolderThe American Heritage fire helmet is a traditional-style leather firefighter helmet that combines time-honored styling and craftsmanship with state-of-the-art advancements in design, leather tanning, and composites.
The result is a low-profile leather helmet that is attractive, durable, and comfortable.
Colour won't chip
Leather offers excellent thermal protection and durability, but not all leather helmets are equal. We process our leather with the latest chromium tanning techniques. This seals the protective qualities and provides optimum heat reflection. By colouring our helmets during the tanning process, there's no paint to chip.
Fiberglass inner layer provides strength
The American Heritage offers additional protection through our exclusive LeatherGlas molding process. This process molds the outer and inner layers of the leather shell with a fiberglass composite to deliver outstanding protection during extreme conditions. The leather is a molded one-piece construction. This is a superior to the layered process used by others.
Unique size and fit adjustment options
LION Helmets has engineered a complete system of adjustments into the American Heritage to provide maximum comfort and a custom fit. The patented Center of Gravity adjustment system allows you to adjust the center of gravity to your preference and keeps it there.
The ratcheting headband easily adjusts from size 5 1/2 and 9 1/2 and there are three positions for height adjustment. The American Heritage's headband is also cushioned with foam and covered with sleeve leather for additional comfort. With the American Heritage, you're fighting the fire, not your helmet.
How to Fit and Adjust LION Helmets:
Fire helmets are essential to firefighter safety. Improper fit, whether too loose or too tight, can cause fatigue, discomfort and even serious injury.
LION Helmets’ 9 point adjustment system provides optimum comfort and a customized fit. Straight out of the box, LION Helmets will fit most fire fighters with a simple ratchet adjustment (accommodates sizes 5.5 to 9.5). Their patented Center of Gravity™ adjustment system allows firefighters to adjust the Center of Gravity™ to their preferred balance and keeps it there.
LION understands that you can't be at every department at all times, therefore they have developed a fit and adjustment video so firefighters can make the proper adjustments to their helmets.
