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'!).

Have you ever gotten to the barn only to find that your helmet is still wet from the last time you rode? Even worse, there's that smell! Well we found the solution!

Designed by experienced riders, the Fresh Helmet Sack eliminates that musty, moldy helmet smell. Activated carbon neutralizes odors caused by everyday use and perspiration, rather than simply masking them. A desiccant helps sweat and perspiration dry quicker and more completely. Just toss it in your helmet after each ride and you'll find a fresher, drier helmet next time you ride!

Your helmet is an investment and the Helmet Sack is a great way to help prolong it's life.

    Fresh Helmet Sack is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more sweaty helmet smell!! My helmet absorbs a lot of sweat and no amount of deodorizer seemed to help. So I decided to try the Fresh Helmet Sack, although I didn't expect it to work, I was willing to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! I drop the sack in my helmet after a lesson and it's dry and doesn't smell the next time I use it. Amazing!! I've already recommended it to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with moisture and therefore smell I purchased one of these for my riding helmet and one for my husband's cycling helmet. We both sweat profusely in the summer and wanted something to help dry out our helmets between rides and hopefully help with the smell too. Our liners are machine washable, but we didn't want to be washing them daily. These sacks do seem to help and achieve their purpose. Now I wash my helmet liner once a week and it doesn't smell between washings. Be sure to keep the instructions which tell you how to rejuvenate the sacks too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Summer Riding! I have been using one of these since last summer. IMO, this item is not for un-stinking an already-stinky helmet, it's for keeping your helmet from getting stinky in the first place. This time of year it's invaluable, because I ride, I sweat, my helmet gets all damp, and I just toss this thing into the helmet and by the next day, my helmet is dry enough that I wouldn't know I'd just worn (and sweated into it) the previous day. I bought this at the same time I got a brand helmet. My old Ovation schooling helmet was stored outside my tack trunk to air dry between riding, but it still got that Helmet Funk, and it only took about 3 months for that to happen. I've had the Troxel for a year, and it still doesn't have that Funk, and I'm pretty sure it's because of this helmet sack.If you already have Helmet Funk, this probably won't fix it, but it will keep you from getting the Funk to start with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work!! I bought a new Charles Owen helmet, and wanted to make sure it stayed nice for a long time! This was the first time I had ever used the fresh sack, and it seems to work!! I smell my helmet everyday I use it and I don't notice any odor. Now I will have to wait until the heat of the summer to see how this stands up, but for now, seems to be a good product!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea, But didn't live up to expectations I was so excited at the prospect of having something that would make my sweaty helmet smell go away! I used it a couple times and wasn't that impressed. It may have taken a little bit of the odor away, but not enough for the smell to go away.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love this, but it falls apart! I originally bought two of these, one for my schooling helmet and one for my show helmet. I love them and feel that they work well, especially if you wipe the excess sweat out of your helmet before putting the sack in it. One of the packets broke open and the charcoal mixture got all over my helmet. I ordered another sack to replace it, but would have liked to have had the option of purchasing the interior packet only. Within two weeks, the replacement sack also broke open, thus my low rating for this product. Too bad- I think it works well as long as I don't have to wash soggy charcoal out of my good helmet. I will be looking for a similar, more sturdy product elsewhere.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helmet is Drier and Fresher I bought two of these, one for my schooling helmet and one for my Charles Owen show helmet which gets especially sweaty and stinky. My schooling helmet is completely dry when I put it on and my show helmet is drier and definitely smells better! I think this product is worth purchasing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jury Still Out I really thought these charcoal based odor eaters would help with my sweaty helmet odor. I truly have not smelled a difference in my helmet - the sachet did not do any better than some Febreeze and a dryer sheet! Save your money!
