The Fresno Chin Strap features stitched edges and Smoked Out Hardware or Light Smoke Hardware. The Fresno Chin Strap has the choice of the Wide-Guard quick release buckle (The same buckle that is on the standard nomex chinstrap on stock helmets) or the all one piece Chin Strap with NO quick release. (both Chin Straps come in the same length) Fresno Chin Strap features a Fearless Leather Cheek Protector (this is a piece of leather that sits between you and the postman slide.) Fresno Chin Strap is designed to be long enough to be able to wear your helmet while masking up. Features two snap locations to keep your Chin Strap tail out of your way when your Chin Strap is on tight. Fresno Chin Strap is made to be worn and not put up on your helmet.

This is a heavy duty chin strap. The light weight chin strap that comes on a helmet is trash compared to this product. I have had it about a month and already been on 2 fires assigned to fire attack and had zero issues with my chin strap.

Black smoke apparel puts out an absolutely amazing product that is very customizable, durable and worth the money I highly recommend them to anyone I know looking to get an customer leather products for the fire service. I will always return to them for my leather needs

Overall great work on the chin strap, thick leather. The only real complaint I have is that its kinda difficult to get it to adjust the length but I'm sure over time as the leather starts to break in it'll be easier. But overall I'm very satisfied with the finished product looks great on my helmet

Shipping was quick and the quality, second to none! The leather was easy to break in and it looks awesome on my new lid!!

I love the chinstrap! I love how it is made. I haven’t had a job with it yet but by the way it feels, I am sure it will hold up for a long time! The only thing I was unhappy about was the service. I emailed twice and never got a response. Other than that, it’s a great product!

I recently purchased a Phenix “First Due” helmet and was looking for a replacement chinstrap. I’ve bought BSA leather in the past (Fresno glove strap and Fresno shorty glove strap) and was happy with the quality of the products. When my new Black Smoke chinstrap showed up, it took me about 10 minutes to swap it with the old chinstrap. Again, the quality is second to none! I like the extra length of the chinstrap as it allows a greater range of adjustment. Keep up the great work!
