English Chaps/Boots/Helmets



Manufacturer: Charles Owen
Model: AYR8
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought this helmet because my other Troxel helmet cracked. I purchased it at Coach Stop Saddlery in Bedminster, NJ for $315.

Likes: I LOVE this helmet. The quality is superior to any other helmet I have EVER ridden in (That's 12 years of helmets!) It is my first Charles Owen and I will NEVER go back! My trainer (Hunt Seat) compliments me whenever I ride and it is PERFECT for showing! The black/black is awesome for the Jumper ring and equitation. Judges compliment me, too! With my hair up in my hairnet I would normally get sweaty, but it fits perfectly and is so cool and comfy. The silver, as far as I've seen, looks great, too. It is so comfortable, I once forgot it was on my head and was looking for it for about thirty minutes! The Silver impregnated interior helps keep odors down and there are barely any at all because It is so well ventilated! I love how concealed the vents are and I will never have any other brand of helmet. That securing straps are so comfortable and padded and the clip is easy to adjust and convenient. Did I mention I love, love this helmet!? My focus has improved and been shown in my riding because I'm so comfortable! My trainer is looking into buying one, too. She is so impressed!

Dislikes: NOTHING at all. Perhaps the price at first... but the cool comfort while showing is worth it! Now I can focus on the next jump instead of the scalding heat!

Quality: THE best helmet EVER!!! The quality is impeccable and fits like a glove. Of course, all heads are different, though. The fabric is really easy to clean, but for schooling in less than perfect weather I recommend buying a cheap plastic cover to protect your considerable investment. The comfort is amazing.

Summary: Please, please consider this helmet if you are looking for an amazing, comfortable, and chic helmet for the Hunter ring! You will love it, but remember to make sure it fits properly and don't buy it only for the looks, Many people seem to do this. It is so convenient and the money will pay off!
