Charles Owen Hampton Helmet
Horse Tack - Riding Helmets
This low profile helmet from Britain is covered with the best Italian velvet. The peak is gently rounded to flatter the face and shade the eyes. The adjustable deerskin harness is made from Pittards stay-soft leather and reinforced with nylon for additional strength, security and durability.
The Hampton is lined with luxurious gold satin and has a rich black velour headband for the utmost comfort and softness against the skin.
Available in 6 3/8 - 7 1/2
Available in Black, Navy and Brown
Certified by SEI to ASTM F1163 and kitemarked to BSEN1384
This U.S. standard is the one used by Americans who feel the need for a safety helmet whilst riding (sadly less than 1 in 8 riders). The main reasons for helmets being manufactured to this standard are:
* Helmets are allowed larger ventilation slots.
* Helmets are tested with a greater impact, but the allowed injury is also greater.
The Kitemark is the registered trademark of the BSI and can only be affixed to products certified by them as meeting and being continually tested to the required standard.
SEI is an American organisation, similar to BSI, which was set up to endorse that products meet the claimed standard and that this is constently maintained.
