Jet Style Structural Firefighting Helmet

The Pacific F15 Structural Fire Helmet from Pacific Helmets NZ Ltd combines the heritage and proven safety of Pacific’s unique DuPont™ Kevlar® and Fibreglass reinforced composite shell technology with an advanced polymer chassis to revolutionize your firefighting experience.

The F15 incorporates Pacific’s latest innovative designs such as the dual pivot face shield. Using an elliptic dual pivot system, the F15’s new full coverage internal face shield can be fully deployed when in use with a breathing apparatus to provide you with an extra layer of safety. The F15 also comes with the One Touch Eye Protector (OTEP)™ for easy, push-activated eye protection at times when full face coverage is not required.

The composite shell provides excellent impact and penetration protection and is lightweight and resistant to chemical, UV, heat, and flame. Pacific shells have a proven service life of 15+ years’ with proper care and maintenance. The unique chassis provides a platform for accessories and tech integration.

The F15 has an optimised center of gravity, giving it stability and making it feel lighter to wear. Combined with 5 specially designed points of impact attenuation, the result is a helmet that reduces neck and spine fatigue and provides greater protection against falls and impacts.

The F15 was awarded a Silver at the New Zealand Best Design Awards in 2017.

Shell & Chassis

For Impact and Heat Protection

The shell of the F15 is a composite of Dupont™ Kevlar® and fibreglass which provides excellent impact and penetration protection while being chemical, UV, heat, and flame resistant. The shell is ultrasonically welded to an advanced polymer chassis, combining the proven strength of the Pacific shell with a platform for integration of accessories such as communications, lighting, thermal imaging cameras, and BA masks.

Face Shield

Dual Pivot

The internally mounted Dual Pivot Face Shield on the F15 provides high speed particle protection, is heat and flame resistant, optically correct, anti-scratch and anti-fog coated. The face shield provides full face coverage with plenty of internal space through a unique dual pivot system, allowing the face shield to pivot away from the face as it deploys. The face shield can be fully deployed over a BA mask without obstructing your field of vision.

Made of fire retardant polycarbonate which is highly shock impact resistant under all environmental conditions. Designed to be optically neutral ensuring no visual distortion.

4pt Chinstrap

With Red Quick Release Buckle

4-point chinstrap made of fire retardant Nomex® webbing. Dual rear “rip cord” nape straps allow for a single pull rapid adjustment to achieve maximum security, and are easily adjusted with a gloved hand.

The Quick Release Buckle and dual nape strap ladder locks are red to stand out against a dark background making them easier to find in bad lighting or under extreme fatigue.

Available both with and without Leather Padding to provide extra comfort to your cheeks and ears.


Globally Adjustable Headband

Pacific’s latest headband design eliminates pressure points by using global contraction to contour evenly around the user. Ratchet adjustment enables the headband to be resized to fit a wide range of head sizes, and the angle of the nape strap can be adjusted to perfectly suit your unique head shape.

A pivoting rear nape allows the angle to be adjusted at a range of 100° to perfectly suit the wearer’s nape. This makes for a comfortable and secure fit for all head shapes.

There are three height adjustment levels to ensure stability and comfort for all head sizes.

Downsize kit available to improve the fit on smaller head sizes.

Comfort Padding

Padded Air Mesh & Leather Padding

Padded Air Mesh with Leather front and rear padding in the F15’s liner provides comfortable wear over prolonged use. This 3D mesh provides optimal internal air circulation throughout the liner. The Padded Air Mesh wicks moisture away from your skin.

The padding system can easily be removed for cleaning or decontamination without tools and with a gloved hand. It is attached by hooks and velcro.

Neck Protector

Thermal Protection

Your F15 is supplied standard with a 260gsm double layer Nomex® neck protector. This provides superior flame & thermal protection, and includes anti-static and water repellent properties.
