Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought this vinyl helmet cover for approximately $2.00 Cdn from Greenhawk in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. I wanted something to help keep my helmet dry and clean during bad weather. I don't mind riding in the rain, as long as it's not coming down in buckets, but I didn't want to ruin my helmet.

Likes: In a pinch, it's a good cover. It lasted for a little while, keeping dust, rain and dirt off of the velveteen covering of my International Olympian.

Dislikes: It seems that this cover is made based on one size of helmet.. probably an in between size so it can accommodate as many helmet sizes as possible. I wear a large helmet (7 1/2) and it's almost too big for the cover. I ended up putting the vinyl cover on a smaller helmet that's in storage to keep dirt off of it.

Quality: Okay for $2.00. It didn't last all that long.. after a little while, the vinyl got brittle and started to rip away from the elastics. I really wish the manufacturer made 3 sizes instead of trying to make a 'one size fits all' product. Small, medium and large would be perfect.

Summary: I have since bought a waterproof helmet cover made of lycra with rubbery lining inside. It works amazingly well. As I said before, the vinyl helmet cover is good in a pinch but it can come down to a toss-up: Keep spending $2.00 a pop for a vinyl cover that'll soon rip and be useless, only to buy another, and another and... or spend $20.00 on a waterproof lycra cover that'll last for much longer and look better.
