Purchase: When I went to Marshall and Sterling Equitation finals 2007 as a spectator, I saw for myself just how popular the Gr8 is with equitation riders. For years i had wanted the helmet for its impeccable styling, safety, and overall quality. I found my Gr8 for $260 on sale. Now, they are around $279 not on sale. i found the deal at my local tack shop.
Likes: I love EVERYTHING about my helmet. The classic styling, the comfort, safety, durability, I could go on and on. I recommend this helmet for any English rider, especially one in Competition. I also love the fact that i can wear this helmet in hunters, jumpers, equitation, and lessons.
Dislikes: In all honesty, this helmet is perfect! The price is very reasonable considering the quality and the price of other helmets, and it looks like new after 2 years of wear.
Quality: Like i said before, the quality is OUTSTANDING!!!The GR8 Helmet is covered with a microfiber suede material that has been treated to protect against marking and scuffing. The brim is gently rounded to flatter the face, and a press stamped metallic logo is positioned centrally above the peak. Another embroidered logo is featured on the back of the helmet where a ribbon would traditionally be. The harness is reinforced with nylon for additional strength and safety The Gr8 helmet also features a super soft headband, making it the ultimate helmet for the English rider.
Summary: The bottom line is, that this helmet is by far the best on the market in all attributes, style, quality, safety, and yes, the price is much better than a GPA!
