Which Forestry Safety helmet ?

Recommended Posts

Due to running over my old Forestry Safety helmet I need to replace it.  I bought a Husvarna "Classic" helmet last week but one of the ear protector swivels has already broke seems a very flimsy  idea to me for forestry work, where kit gets some stick.   Which safety helmet can any of you professional full time foresters recommend.  Also out of interest what boots do you wear, do they last long however much one pays for them?Quality of work clothing,footwear seems poor these days relative to how much it costs.   Durabilty and comfort more important to me than price to me, and I have no preference for any brand name.  

I didn't know where  to put this thread so have put it here.

Just got a protos, have used the husky helmets for years then got twatted by some blow back felling and thought i need to invest in my head as much as i do my feet and legs for protection.

 

Good Boots and trousers are £150 + each so why save on protecting your brain as that's the most important part, just my thoughts

Did you get a head injury with the husky helmet on?

no i didnt, but the helmet did the trick just a massive bruise on chest/shoulder as it glanced off

 

The protos does have better adjustability than others and also replaceable top if you take a hit

Husqvarna Technical and Hiax Alpine Pro. Had to explain about the helmet not having a date stamp only a UV panel to indicate service last week during a safety audit but they were happy enough.
