Each N6A Houston leather fire helmet is hand-crafted, shaped, stitched, and trimmed to last for years with minimum maintenance.

Compliant to NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition for structural firefighting. The N6A Houston Leather Fire Helmet offers the high quality and appearance that generations of firefighters have trusted since 1836.
