1st In Leather Custom Leather Helmet Shield
Mikey Hillmann is the man/firefighter behind the new company which has been around for a year now. When he started out, he quickly contacted me about doing a review for a helmet shield. In the spirit of Brotherhood, I asked if he would make a shield for one of our firefighters at #3. He didn’t hesitate. After all, I have plenty of shields.
I cannot remember the design process, but I probably told Mikey the firefighters name and informed him that we were known as the “Green House”. We sometimes use the Hulk as our mascot. After that, I said (as I always do) to do what he wants. Make something he is proud of and that we will like. The surprise is in the delivery when we get it.
The attention to detail in the hand pressed and painted shield is excellent. I couldn’t have even thought up a design this detailed. The shield has gotten a ton of great comments since Hull put it on his lid.
Mikey sent a couple of keychains and a glove strap as well. They are a little more basic than a time intensive custom shield, but perfect non-the-less.
We couldn’t be more pleased with the work of 1st In Leather and have recommended them quite a few times in the past. We look forward to the growth that 1st In Leather has had over the past year and many years to come.
Here is a pretty neat little fact about 1st In Leather:
All our shield are made from the same leather as Cairns Sam Houstons and New Yorkers. The scraps discarded from the manufacturer are turned into shield, glove straps, and key chains. Kind of a green company if you look at it. Re-purposing and recycling.
Make a quality product that the customer loves to show off and lasts through your career!
