Charles Owen J3 Helmet
LOVE this helmet
I've worn this helmet every day for 3 years (bought from another company but so great it deserves a review here too). LOVE how comfortable it is, especially the chin strap.
Very popular with all the event riders at my barn for XC and everyday use.
Just a heads up that I bought it quite snug but after wearing it every day the padding starts to break down and it is now just a touch loose.
Will definitely buy this helmet again and have recommended it to others.

I bought this helmet after my IRH began popping off my face over jumps. The second I put it on, it was perfect. There were no hard spots, it slipped straight on and fits perfectly. It never moves and is low profile. After being used every day for 18 months through the nasty hot summer, some of the foam in the front of the headband started to deteriorate, however it is such a great helmet and I plan on getting a new one.

Love this helmet!
I haven't found a helmet I LOVE as much as this one, it is so comfortable. When I'm wearing it sometimes I forget to take it off. Many people I know have boughten themselves one because they liked how it looked. I use my everyday and for show too. Looks amazing with your own cross country colors cover.

Great Every Day Hat
I use this helmet every day on several horses, winter and summer. I love it. It fits great and lasts for a long time. I usually replace every 2 years, and always go back to the same helmet. For the price, there's no better helmet.
I have a "nicer" Charles Owen hat for formal occasions, as I think this one isn't quite there.

I got this helmet in 2011, and I absolutely love it. I came from a Tipperary that started out fitting well, but the padding deteriorated over time and it eventually became way too large. This helmet fits like a glove. In the summer it keeps my head cool, and it still looks sharp.

Good For A Skull Cap
I am a dressage rider, with an unfortunately hard to fit head. I tried every dressage helmet under the sun and none fit just right. And when you're spending a lot of money on a helmet, you want it to fit. This is by far the most comfortable and well fitting helmet I have ever owned. I won't show in it, only because it's not for dressage, but I school in it everyday. I stuck a dressage cover on it and it was sufficient. I fell off with it and it protected my head very well. In most helmets you get a headache after, but in this one it was fine! Sad I have to buy a new one now.
