GR8 Helmet
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Charles Owen
Model: GR8 Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I needed a new show helmet, as I was moving up to a higher level of showing. I was searching through helmets, and this one caught my eye, I knew not many people had this helmet at the time but it looked very elegant. I bought it at Greenhawk for about $225 during an end of season sale.

Likes: I love how this helmet is low profile. Normally helmets tend to look enormous on my head, making me look like a bobble head on top of my horse, but this one actually looks great on me and fits really well. I also love how it fits more oval shaped heads, the IRH and GPA's tend to fit more round shaped heads so they really didn't fit properly. Also I love the buckle, it isn't bulky and doesn't get in the way. Another thing is how lightweight it is. And in the summer, although you can't see any vents, my head never tends to get hot.

Dislikes: I find it is quite expensive full price, but I feel its worth it.

Quality: The low profile helmet is covered with microfibre suede material. Features a gently rounded brim, press stamped metallic logo and a nylon reinforced harness. One of the most fashionable and innovative helmets available today.

Summary: This helmet is really worth the price. It looks great in the hunter, jumper and even the dressage ring.
