The new Jet Style Helmet, fly in and out before the fire even knew you were there!
Introducing the new MSA Cairns XF1 Fire Helmet, a new jet fighter pilot inspired design engineered to meet North American firefighting standards.
We know the MSA Cairns XF1 looks entirely different than the helmet you’re wearing now. And that’s the point. MSA Cairns is always striving to innovate helmet technology—which is why they’re always talking to firefighters about their gear. From these conversations, they knew it was the right time to bring a European-style fire helmet to North America.
- NFPA Compliant Full Faceshield
- Lime/Yellow Retroreflective Trim

Easy to Clean
The Cairns XF1 fire helmet’s modular design allows it to be quickly disassembled for thorough inspection, care and maintenance. Plus, the helmet’s soft goods are removable, washable and replaceable – all without requiring the use of tools. These features have all been engineered to help firefighters align with cancer prevention directives as written by the Firefighter Cancer Support Network. NFPA-1971; 2018 Compliant.
The size of the headband may be adjusted to fit the wearer’s head by using the ratchet adjustment system. The rear ratchet arms have three (3) adjustable positions so that the angle of the ratchet may be set to accommodate the back of the wearer’s head. The headband height is adjustable at the front of the helmet via sliding friction tab to provide additional comfort to the wearer and maximize compatibility with the SCBA facepiece.
The multi-point chin strap is adjustable via a friction buckle, with multiple stops to help ensure a proper fit.
All interaction points are bright yellow for easy visualization and identification.
When it’s all said and done, the contoured style of the XF1 doesn’t just fit 99% of firefighters – it fits them comfortably.
- Medium: head size of 6 1/2 – 7 3/4″ (52–62 cm)
- Large: head size of 7 1/8 – 8 1/8″ (57–65 cm)
The Cairns XF1 jet-style fire helmet has been engineered as much for comfort and fit as safety. The most obvious feature is what it lacks – the XF1 is brimless. While untraditional, the lack of a brim reduces snag hazards. Plus, the helmet’s accessories, like lighting and communications, are integrated seamlessly into the design, resulting in a sleek profile.
Additional accessories can be purchased that easily integrate into the XF1 to customize and enhance the user experience.
- Integrated lighting with front & side illumination to reduce snag hazards and improve situational awareness.
- Integrated communications with an internal headset to maximize firefighter interaction. Available with a one or two speaker option.
- Integrated ocular visor that articulates forward and backwards to optimize fit and accommodate prescription glasses. ANSI/ISEA compliant
