Tipperary Sportage Helmet
I've been riding in the sportage helmet since 2007 and have found them to be comfortable and durable.
More importantly THIS HELMET DOES IT'S JOB! I am purchasing a new one today after a NASTY fall this week. I busted my hip and hit my head so hard on a rock the helmet cracked. BUT I never lost consciousness and according to the scans at the ER I sustained no brain damage (concussion or otherwise). Another important point is this lid cradles the head in a way that I have had NO residual neck pain after the fall.
I very much recommend this helmet.

I have been riding in these helmets daily on multiple horses in the Florida heat for years and years and they are so light comfortable and well ventilated I forget its on. I replace after any fall so the price is right for a working helmet. It's offered me very good protection in multiple falls over the years. I buy a new one after each fall just in case!

This helmet is so much for comfortable than my former helmet ( a popular brand). I am taking it to a horse ride that is 125 miles long, so it has to be comfortable.. Not hot and def not heavy.

Love my Tipperary!
I love this helmet. The XS is quite small, which is excellent as I have lots of trouble finding a good everyday schooling helmet that fits my small head that doesn't look extremely childish.
I love the vents and I find it very cool and comfortable for rides in hot weather.
My helmet has for the most part held up well, but I've noticed that some of the padding on the outer edge of the helmet (below the plastic) has started to peel away from the helmet itself after just around a year of pretty consistent use.

Very Nice Helmet
I ordered this helmet for my 8 year old daughter after trying another helmet that had the dial fit, which bothered her neck. This helmet does not have the dial fit, but does have more head coverage in the back, which I was looking for. It fits very nice and has a lot more padding than the other helmet I purchased, which is a plus. The vents are nice and the color (navy blue) is also attractive. I believe this is a 5 star helmet but it is comparable to the other helmet that I purchased for half the price of this one, which is why I gave it a lower "value" rating. This one just offers more padding, but both are great helmets!
*Just for reference my daughter had a 21" head. We decided to order the SMALL and it fits perfectly. It is snug, but not too tight.

Ultra Comfortable Helmet
I love this helmet. It is so light and comfortable - a pleasure to wear. Fits perfectly. I will buy this again and again.
