Old Model of Tipperary
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Manufacturer: Tipperary
Model: Old Model of Tipperary
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I got it in January 2008 for schooling over fences. My last helmet had taken it's last fall, so I needed a replacement. My instructor had one, which she let me try on. I think I paid $65 for it from a local tack shop.

Likes: It's really light! I love the color (blue). I love that it comes down lower in the back than other helmets. I trail ride a lot so I'm glad for the extra protection and lightness. It's really well padded. I have really long, as in past the waist of my pants, hair that I'm able to tuck up under my helmet. I've only taken a few falls in this helmet, but I've come out of them fine, with only a minor concussion. I don't get whiplash when I fall off with this helmet like I used to with Troxel helmets. It's really well ventilated. It's really comfortable. I can spend 6+ hours in it and not get a headache. Major helmet hair yes, but no headache. No annoying red mark on my forehead either. The leather chinstrap cover is nice too.

Dislikes: Its scratches really easily. There's no removable liner to wash. So, after almost three years, the padding is just little gross. Again, after three years, it seems much looser. I think I've just worn down the padding. Now it tends to slip back to my hair line instead of sitting two finger above the brow if I do anything above a walk. The visor got cracked really fast.

Quality: It's a well made helmet. It's pretty padded. The straps are easy to adjust. Most comfortable helmet I've ever had.

Summary: I will definitely get another Tipperary helmet (and soon)!! It's by far the best helmet I've ever had. I will definitely consider other Tipperary products considering how happy I am with the helmet.
