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'!).

Up-to-date styling, fit and unparalleled safety make the Ayr8® Leather Look the latest choice in equestrian protective headwear. This low profile helmet features centrally located front and rear ventilation holes covered in mesh, while the side panels are covered in our exclusive leather look fabric. The Leather Look Ayr8® requires minimal care to maintain its brilliant appearance.  The lining features interwoven silver ions, providing anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors.  Center panels are available in black for a classic look or heat reflective paint of gold or silver for thermoregulation. The GRpx® technology harness takes the superb fit to the next level.

    Charles Owen AYR8 Leather Look Helmet is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable and looks good So comfortable I forget it's on.  I guess I have more of an oval head than round but nothing extreme.  Low profile look so I don't look like an alien when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror.  I have worn this in the rain  and have banged my head on various things tacking up and no scuff marks or wet marks as of yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to clean I got this helmet because I needed to replace my GPA and wanted to try a Charles Owen. I do not look good in the GR8 but this helmet I do. The low profile fit is similar to GPA. I don't know about the durability, the "leather" on the visor has already been marked from me adjusting the helmet by the visor and I've only had it for a couple months. So I'll have to see how it holds up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! For a while I couldn't decide which Charles Owen to buy. I needed a nice show helmet. And you know how it is, with the standard "equestrian" look. There's not much room to stray from the black helmet, black show coat, white show shirt, tan jodhpurs, and black tall boots.I must say, up close, this helmet is not attractive at all. What really got me is the look from farther away. It is very professional looking and most definitely stands out. As far as I've seen, SmartPak is the only place that carries the leather-look in the US. All of the others are across the pond. Took about a month for it to be shipped to me (said it was going to take two months), so I was pleasantly surprised when it came.Definitely a nice spin from the usual velvet Charles Owens. Looks good, dirt and stuff doesn't stick to the surface, easy to clean, comfortable like all the others. A wonderful purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenominal I first saw this helmet at my local tack shop. I immediately fell in love. I currently have the Charles Owens AYR8 because I have a rounder head, and don't fit into the other Charles Owens. I have the classic black one, but when i saw this leather one i was amazed. It's so smooth, and dirt will not stick to it. you could brush it off right away with a wet cloth, and to test it out, i used my nails and scratched it in the store, and no marks showed up on the helmet. truly Phenomenal. it's a must have.
