Ughhh... Not a big fan of large conglomerate fire service product manufacturers. Seems like the larger companies get, the more removed they are from providing decent customer service and reasonable pricing. Since Cairns sold the helmet line to MSA we lost sizing, comfort and paid more. We've been Globe customers for many years and having strayed many times to give others a chance, we always revert back to Globe for the quality, pricing and delivery time, one can only hope they don't diminish the line in any way, but alas, streamlining multiple lines would seem inevitable.
