Great roduct


Fits nice and tight on helmet. Can be seen at a good distance.

Glow in the Dark


I currently have the 1st gen Foxfire helmet band on my first leather helmet. My 2nd helmet, i have the Gen 2 Foxfire helmet band. I have had my gen 1 for a while, and it still works. However, I can not compare the gen 2 band to the gen 1 quite yet just because it is brand new. The gen 2 band however, does glow alot brighter as advertised.

Be seen at night.


Let there be light! .. well a strong glow , weather you're a Company Officer or Firefighter you can track crew members and bee seen by everyone on the fire ground , even in Heavy smoke conditions . Fantastic safety product every Helmet should have one. Cleans up easy and does not melt!

very bright!


This is a very well made band and it is very bright and charges quickly, glows for a while and look cool!



Bright, but doesn't stay charged as long as I thought it would. Very thick, sticky band that stays in place.

This website's customer service is great


I don't really like ordering things online because the customer service is either terrable, or everything is automated. The employees at the fire store not only gave me email updates letting me know the latest status of my package, but also called to make sure they had all my shipping information correct. They were on top of my order, and I feel completely safe ordering from them again.

Better than a Rubber tube


After having the Ole rubber inner tube finally snap, I made the decision to make the investment in the Fox Fire Helmet band after seeing other members also make the investment. Have absolutely no issues with it thus far; it's a bit dirty but still holds a glow!

Too tight


I bought this helmet band with safety in mind. As a firefighter mom I love the idea of any increased illumination during fire calls. The glow on this band is great and my son loved it. But as he put it on his helmet, it was very tight and when he tried to add door stops, the band ripped. I don't know if other helmets are smaller or if this band was smaller than usual, but that was our experience. Disappointed.

Much more pleased with the next generation one...


Compared to the first generation that i had i can tell the difference between how bright they glow, and the second generation glows longer. Very pleased!

love anything foxfire


this band is way better than any plain black helmet band, it illuminates you and helps you be seen easier. these bands are well constructed and very very durable


"What is the major difference in the first and second generation helmet band?"

Per the manufacturer: The difference is that the 2nd Generation Helmet Band has 40% more "Glow" Pigment in it therefore giving a much brighter and longer lasting "Glow".

"Is the material resilient, i.e. can it hold wedges to the helmet while remaining tight and not losing elasticity? And also hold that Elasticity if the wedges are removed?"

yes for both questions

"Will this work on a Cairns: 664 Invader Helmet?"

Mark, don't see any reason why this would not fit or work on a Invader helmet.

"will this work on my 880 Chicago traditional"

yes it should fit very nicely

"I asked a question earlier about fitting a Bullad PX Firefighting helmet if it does what is the size of the helmet band. (ie: WxHxL)"

Tony they don't sell this or list this by size, we don;t know the measurements, it does appear to be about 1.5 to 2 inch's wide

"I would like to know if this item will work with the Bullard PX firefighting Helmet."

Tony, yes this should work on your PX helmet

"will the 2nd gen foxfire illuminating headband work on the wild land bullard full brim helmet"

Mike yes it should, we recommend that you don't try to store anything between the helmet and headband

"Hello, I have had a foxfire glow band for several years on my helmet, and love it. I bought it at an Ohio State Firefighters Association conference some years back, problem is band glows great still, however it snapped and broke from behind my face shield mounting brackets. I can send pics if needed, will you send me a free replacement for the busted one ? Please advise me asap, so I can get it back on my helmet for safety."
