Please contact CURTIS if you wish to order different feature options than what is available above. Some of those options include:

  • Bronx Bend: Firefighters who bend the brim of their leather fire helmet take the chance of ruining it which reduces its protection and negates the warranty. Both the N5A and N6A are now offered with a Bronx bend option that helps prevent these problems.
