Purchase: I originally purchased my first Tipperary helmet from Dover Saddlery for about $65.00. Unfortunately I ran it over with my truck... needless to say I bought a new one, this time from an online store, The Distance Depot for $60.00 (plus shipping). I bought this helmet after borrowing one from a friend for a competitive trail ride...
Likes: I really like the way this helmet fits. It's not too snug, and VERY comfortable. The padding for the chin strap is great, nice and comfortable with no chaffing. I ride trails in Florida and I needed something that was comfortable and that ventilated well. This helmet is perfect for trail riding/endurance. It has a nice look to it, not that "egg head" look you can get with other helmets of similar price. It also protects the back of your skull very well.
Dislikes: The only complaint I have about this helmet is that it doesn't have much of a visor on it.
Quality: The outer shell is very durable and resistant to scratches. The synthetic leather on the back of the helmet does tend to flip down after the helmet has been used awhile, but it can be secured back again easily. Overall I would say this helmet is very durable, I have friends that have been riding in theirs for over 5 years, and they are still in good shape.
Summary: I highly recommend this helmet to anyone, especially those who ride trails, endurance/competitive trail as it is lightweight, durable, comfortable, and ventilates well. Very nice helmet for the price!!
