As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Charles Owen 4Star Helmet is designed for the extreme situation. The Charles Owen 4Star Helmet is certified to the four top international standards: CE marked to BSEN1384; SEI certified to ASTM F1163; SNELL certified to SNELL E001; and BSI Kitemarked to the newly enhanced PAS015:2011. A technically superior helmet, the deep-fitting Charles Owen 4Star Helmet is the result of years of advanced computer analysis and incorporates the latest aramid fibres, which are embedded in a tough resin matrix for vastly improved crush resistance. The neat quick release buckle in a high strength alloy fastens the patented GRpx® harness system for the ultimate in stability.  The lining is interwoven with silver ions, providing anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors. The Charles Owen 4Star helmet also features the new Charles Owen “Free Fit" system which allows for increased airflow across the forehead. It combines a frontal air channel with a Coolmax® mesh which significantly increases cooling and evaporation of sweat. Add this to the 10 ventilation slots and the Charles Owen 4Star Helmet is the coolest ride yet. Perfectly finished with a black ventilated silk, the Charles Owen 4Star Helmet is the ultimate choice for the safety conscious rider. Colors: Black or Heat Reflective Silver

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet and Smartpak was awesome! Not only was this helmet awesome, but Kate's trainer recommended the 4 star helmet too. Needed it quickly for an upcoming show and it arrived in time!. Very pleased with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best skull cap! This helmet is extremely comfortable, it has a cut out at the front so there's no pressure on your forehead. I feel extremely safe in this helmet, it's the most protective skull cap out there and it meets more safety standards than any other one.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty bulky I wanted a helmet with top safe ratings so I ordered this one. Holy mushroom helmet!! I just couldn't do it. While it was very comfortable and felt like it would be cooler than most helmets...the bulkiness of it just was too overwhelming and i had to swap it for the pro II. Now that being husband tired the helmet on as well and it didn't look nearly as bulky. We dubbed this "the man helmet" :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too bulky and heavy Maybe it's just me but when I tried this helmet on it made my head look like a mushroom. It was extremely heavy and not ideal for eventing. I'm sure it is good quality coming from Charles Owen but it is a poor design. I would recommend the Charles OwenPro II Helmet, it is a lot better for a more reasonable price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet! I bought this helmet after my Pro II skull cap needed replacing after a fall. The skull cap did a wonderful job of protecting my head and I did not get a concussion, but when I read about the extra safety features of this helmet, I thought I would give it a try. It looks a little bigger on the head that the skull cap, but the ventilation and safety features definitely outweigh any aesthetic concerns. I measured my head according to the instructions, and the fit is perfect. (I actually went down 1/8 from the size I wore in the skull cap.) It is definitely more helmet than the skull cap, but now that I am used to it, I love it! I hope I never have to test the additional safety features, but I sure do feel like my head is very well protected, and I love that it doesn't get as hot inside, even on a hot and humid summer day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Helmet! I spent a very long time going between this and the pro-skull 2. I was worried that the 4-star would be too heavy/bulky, but decided the increased safety of it would make it worth it. I never should have worried in the first place. I don't notice the extra weight at all and unless you look really closely nobody would ever notice the extra bulk. It is extremely comfortable and the air vents work wonderfully! Great value, couldn't be happier!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but bulky This helmet looks really nice just when you are holding it. But on it looks ridiculous! It sits so high on your head and sticks out a couple inches. Look at the other Charles Owens skull caps! They look better and fit better too and cost less!!
