    New helmets keep firemen cool while looking like hot Imperial Stormtroopers

    http://dvice.com/archives/2009/04/firemen-helmets.php

    These would be awesome for our firefighters.
    Having been a firefighter (7 years with the Bismarck Rural Fire Department) I would have welcomed one these as part of my turn out gear.
    Anyone who has ever been around a structure fire can really appreciate the cooling properties of these.

    The sex appeal would have been nice too ;D

    Firemen had always had a certain mystique, and let's face it, sex appeal. These helmets will certainly further that image.
    The most impressive thing about these wonders is the price — $190 US, which isn't much more than a nice bicycle helmet. For once, personal safety doesn't come at a price, especially for our hometown heroes/firemen.

    Shock I found another picture with information included.
    There are hook-ups for external breathing apparatus, clips on either side for flashlight, camera and you can add microphones for communications.
    Modern insulation and carbon fiber outer shell (think kevlar) while the visors I would assume come from the space program.

    Can you imagine the women you'd pull walking around in one of those?
    You wouldn't even have to try anymore.
