DISCLAIMER: Capital City Fire Helmets LLC is not associated with MSA or Cairns Helmets in any way. MSA Cairns does not consent to any modifications to their helmets nor will they honor any warranty on these helmets. Any repairs made to MSA or Cairns Helmets are only authorized by MSA's repair facility, per MSA. Any materials used on these helmets in our shop are available via third party vendors in which you can purchase and install yourself. If you wish to send us a privately owned helmet to have any work performed, then you are consenting to have Capital City Fire Helmets LLC work on your property. MSA does not assume any liability with  your helmet after any work is performed.



COLORS: They will be available in any color offering that the factory offers - gloss black, red, yellow, white, blue, and natural. These helmets are painted by the factory, not CCFH.



SIZING: Sizes will be medium or large. BE SURE TO KNOW YOUR HAT SIZE WHEN ORDERING. Mediums will comfortably fit a 7 3/8 without a ratchet. If you are closer to 7 1/2, consider a large. Typically anything beyond 7 3/8 will be a size large. All new helmets will now come with the factory removable/washable liner. This is designed to be removed easily and placed in an included mesh bag for laundering/decon. Fitment will still be the same. Front head band is no longer leather - it is now padded cloth. The old style liner is available upon request and subject to the additional charge of the part ONLY. See here for Video Example: CLICK ME



FITMENT: All Retro Helmets as of 2019 now come with the new style washable liner with cloth forehead pad. We are unable to order the helmets with the old style leather padded liner. We can install the old style liner for an additional fee of $150.00 (subject to change...price dispute with MSA) and you will get to keep the cloth liner as a loose part. We will NOT remove your liner and stock it to discount the price. We'd be up to our necks in cloth liners if that was the case.


Also, the helmets will be set up to wear without the ratchet as best as possible with the stock suspension. For those looking for a low ride height on their helmets, we can install a deep suspension for an additional $50.00. This service is normally $65.00 for all other helmets that are sent to CCFH - since you are committing to a new helmet, we will gladly discount this service. 


REFLECTIVE TRIM: Standard helmet trim is lime green reflexite. I can offer blue, red, and white reflexite, as well as all of the standard scotchlite colors including reflective black. **Scotchlite** comes in two different materials. Scotchlite cloth tetrahedrons is the same striping material found on turnout gear. Scotchlite tape is the reflective striping material found on fire apparatus. Please specify which type of scotchlite.


**NEW REFLECTIVE TRIM - RETRO TETRAHEDRONS: We now offer reproduction tetrahedrons made out of scotchlite tape. These are lime green and are cut to the same exact dimensions as the original reflexite used in the mid 1980s and early 90s. Color is almost an exact match. You have to be up close to the material to tell the difference. This is a perfect way to complete your Retro Helmet, by using reflective trim that replicates the look and authenticity of the originals. As shown below, new production on the LEFT, and original reflexite on the RIGHT.


TURNAROUND TIME: Helmets are ordered in bulk quantities in order to ensure that the bulk discount from the factory is applied to the order. This discount is already built into the pricing for all helmets on this page. A total of 10 helmets minimum are required for each order, which means we have to wait until 10 different customers submit orders (or one/two/etc request multiple helmets). This could take as little as a week, or a whole month. Regardless, once the order is submitted, it takes the factory a minimum of 45-60 days to build Custom Helmets. Once helmets arrive in our shop, it takes approx. two weeks to complete them as Retro Helmets. We know...the turn around could be better, but the wait is worth it. 



DEPOSITS AND PAYMENTS: 50% deposit is required for all new helmet orders. The remainder of the balance will be due when the helmet is in our shop and 100% ready to ship. Customers will be notified via email when their helmets are ready, in which final balances will be sent out as well. Deposits and final payments to be made via:

Individual orders: United States Post Office Money Orders (USPS MO)
Fire Departments: Purchase Orders (PO), department check, or certified money order

Absolutely no personal checks will be accepted.
