Tipperary
Sportage Helmet
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Tipperary
Model: Sportage Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I purchased this helmet for $60 at The Paddock in Ledyard, CT, Dec 2007. I ride in a GPA helmet but found it was not ventilated enough, so I went with the Tipperary due to ventilation.

Likes: I like all the ventilation of this helmet and it is super light weight. Excellent helmet for the price. Definitely not for the show ring, but more for schooling and hunter paces or trail rides. I like the low profile of the helmet as well.

Dislikes: On the back of the helmet is fake leather part of the harness and it is tan/beige in color. Looks rather silly because my helmet is blue and the beige is 2-3" wide. I wish Tipperary would change the color of this harness to black. It wouldn't stick out like a "sore thumb". I did want black and the closest was graphite color, which when the sun hit it looked like a giant reflector on your head! The blue didn't look like that in the sun.

Quality: Construction of the helmet is good. The strap under the chin is "stiff" but once it breaks in, it isn't too bad.

Summary: Excellent helmet for the price. Would definitely purchase again.
