Model: Sierra Helmet (View all Sierra Helmet reviews)

Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: After wearing a 'tin can' for 15 years as a helmet, for safety reasons we (it was a birthday present) invested in this helmet from our local tack shop for $174.99 (Canadian).

Likes: All round beautiful helmet. Gives you great protection without making your head look like a mushroom on top. Nice ventilation for summer riding with removable inside padding/ liner so you can wash it, while the advertised GPS III Micro adjustable harness system is adjustable enough to wear a light liner or headband in the winter. The circumference adjustment is much like a bike helmet, very easy to adjust according to you hair-do of the day (french braid vs. pony tail). Troxel also makes a black velvet cover (about $35 CD) so you can show english with it. It also came with a nice protective bag with draw string, to keep it clean.

Dislikes: I have had it for 4 years.......so it has faded a bit from the sun, but that is to be expected with anything (even my black horse fades in the sun, LOL). There is nothing I don't like :)

Quality: Very well made unit. Troxel has a great reputation and this helmet shows. It is recommended to replace your helmet every 10 years minimum or after any impact to the head, I definitely feel this helmet will meet those expectations.

Summary: Very versatile helmet! It is advertised as a western helmet but with the velvet cover it easily changes to english. I have worn it in training level dressage and driving (a cart).
