Custom Charles Owen AYR8 Helmet
WORTH THE MONEY
LOVE LOVE LOVE this helmet! originally bought in the black/silver i decided the black/black would be more suitable for hunters. its way cooler than my old GR8 and look 10x better. Very popular in the show circuit and excellent for at home too!
*beware the silver is SILVER... and does shine in the sun!*

Normally I would never pay this much for a helmet, but I tried one on at WEG and loved it! I normally wear a 6 7/8, but it is a little big and I should have returned it for a smaller size, but I wanted to wear it at a horse trial that weekend :)
It is very comfortable and attractive. For the price, I will have to keep this as my show helmet.

This helmet gets five stars all around from me. I purchased it on smartpak after going to a local store to get fitted for a helmet. None of the other brands or options fit me well! The helmet, while being low profile, still comes down around your head instead of perching ontop of it. This negates the dreaded helmet silhouette! It's super comfortable, and well worth the price!

I just graduated from an "old" GPA and wanted something that had air vents. I had heard great things about this helmet and haven't been disappointed - it is extremely comfortable. My only frustration is that Charles Owen helmets are definitely designed for oval heads - I have a more of a round head, so its a tad tighter on the sides than I would like, but tried on a few sizes and got one that fits safely and comfortably, despite the shape being slightly too oval for me. I LOVE that the inner material is infused with silver to help keep the inside fresh and clean - that is genius. This helmet is a tad pricy but I'm pleased with my purchase! Oh, it looks great, too.
