Horse Tack Review


Tipperary
Sportage Plus
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Tipperary
Model: Sportage Plus
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: Received it directly from Phoenix Performance Products (parent company of Tipperary) as a replacement for my original sportage

Likes: The only thing I can think of is that this helmet does a good job of keeping my head cool.

Dislikes: My biggest complaint about this helmet is the fit. When I first received my sportage plus it fit so tight that it gave me headaches. Within a few months (no serious falls either) it had become so loose that now when I canter it falls off my head and dangles on my neck in front of my face. Not safe at all. Adjusting the harness has done nothing to fix this issue. In addition to that the color started chipping off the helmet within a few days of receiving it and it now has white flecks all over it, despite being stored indoors when I'm not wearing it.

Quality: See above

Summary: Overall I am very disappointed in this helmet. I had an original Sportage and I loved it, I wish I could find another one. Tipperary could have done much better with this helmet.
