Gillis Leather Fronts Gallery

The Gillis shield is named after the first Fireman to request this style leather helmet fronts to be made by FireLine Shields and has become a consistently requested style shield.  It is a 14 ounce all hand picked leather design. The Gillis shield fits most helmets except for one well known exception, the Phenix. We, here at FireLine Shields, love this design! Take a look at some past Gillis shields we have done.

We have developed a process that allows us to uniformly fill large quantity orders but still offer the same tough quality and great looks as the one of a kind full custom shield.  Inspired by the richest traditions of the fire service. We are very proud in our ability to specialize in custom, one of a kind, leather Gillis shields.

Here at FLS, shield-making and leatherwork is considered an art form, an extension and expression of a firefighter’s character. Every front we build is hand made using only the finest, hand picked leather. Each member here at Fireline Shields takes great pride in their ability to produce a customer’s idea into a one of a kind work of art.
