Manufacturer: GPA (View all products by GPA Helmets)

Model: Textium (View all Textium Helmet reviews)

Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: Purchased from Dover Saddlery about a year ago. I found it on sale for $350 (it was $435 at my local tack shop!). Retails new for $379 at Dover.

Likes: It fits me perfectly! I previously had an International ATH (styled after the GPA), and before that the velvet styled Internationals and Troxels - and none of them fit me right. The pressure points on my forehead would kill me after a few classes at horse shows. The super low profile of this helmet looks fantastic - you can see my face, not a giant bubble head helmet - and it fits in at dressage shows, H/J shows, and events. Plus its been very durable and looks great after a year plus of schooling in it 6 days a week. I chose the charcoal/charcoal and it looks classic. The charcoal/silver looks great too, but draws more attention to the stripe.

Dislikes: The price. My fiance thought I had lost my mind spending $350 on a helmet.

Quality: Solid construction, it's held up well after over a year of riding in the rain and in dusty rings.

Summary: Love this helmet. When the time comes to replace it I will definitely get another GPA. The Textium is the same beautiful, comfortable helmet as the Titium, minus the 5 front vents, but at a small price break.
