Model: Sportage Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets
Purchase: Received for Christmas this year, but was $54.95 on http://www.vtosaddlery.com. I needed a new helmet that would provide better protection than my less-than-perfect Troxel, and that fit better. I also ride at 2 different stables, and would quite frequently forget my helmet when I went to ride at the other stable. An extra helmet to keep at each barn was the easiest thing to do. I received this helmet in a size Medium, color Carbon Gray.
Likes: Everything. I love how this helmet fits my head, and it provides protection all the way to the base of my neck. No cheap velcro padding - specially designed "pockets" allow a perfect and custom padding fit for your head. I personally think it is an attractive helmet, great for both schooling and showing. Your head never gets hot in this helmet. There are numerous vents in the top and sides. It has a 4-point chin harness, and a leather chin pad. I think this helmet is by far the most comfortable and affordable helmet I have ever owned. Another great product from Tipperary!
Dislikes: Nothing. It's a great helmet!
Quality: http://www.vtosaddlery.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=VTO&Product_Code=TSPH This helmet is available in 3 colors - Carbon Gray, Navy, and Hunter Green. ((The navy is so dark blue it appears black, which is perfect for showing)). Detailed sizing charts from tipperary - sizes XS, S, M, and L. Comes with comfortable, adjustable foam pads, warranty. White&Black Tipperary logos on front visor & back of helmet. Meets SEI & ASTM standards.
Summary: The best helmet I have ever worn/owned. A great helmet for a GREAT price! Will definitely keep purchasing this helmet!
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
