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'!).

Low profile geometry, fashion forward grain leather exterior and extreme ventilation make the new IRH Elite Ultra Helmet one of the most comfortable and fashionable helmets on the market. The center front vents together with the right, left and 2 rear vent ports ensure maximum air intake and the optimal air flow needed for cooling. The COOLON Lining is a soft, fast drying lining pulls moisture away from your head to keep you cool while riding. Removable for washing. **Please order a size up to accommodate the extra lining** Full wrap around, soft, leather harness is ventilated at the rear for maximum comfort. The IRH Elite Ultra Helmet is ASTM F-1163-04a/SEI Certified.

    IRH Elite Ultra Helmet is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet! Quality as advertised. I got this helmet to replace my other IRH and it was the best purchase I've made this year. The fit is great, though I did go with a size smaller. The design and shape are very flattering and stylish. Also the brim is alot more sturdy than previous models (my old brim was starting to break and fall off). The ventilation is great! much better than the older model and the wicking strip is removable and washable so my helmet won't get funky. LOVE all the features :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smart Pak Rocks After I thought I was stuck with this helmet I called and was able to send it back. I then tried the long oval and it still wobbled and actually fell off my head with the harness on and tightened pretty darn tight! I sent that one back also and upgraded to the CO centennial version ayr8, trust me for another 84 dollars go with the Charles Owen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sizing is way off! I ordered this helmet since many people I know love them and we all wear the same helmet size and shape. I ordered my normal size and tried it one a few times to ride in (since sometimes the padding does have to settle a bit) and since it is sweaty I am stuck with it. The helmet is WAY TOO BIG! I mean WAYYYY TOO BIG! The first time I rode it moved a tad and I put an extra pad in to help, the second time it moved more the third even MORE! So now it is sitting in my tack room since it has been used I can't send it back..sigh, I will never buy this brand again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from IRH Elite Helmet I am glad I ordered my correct size, since it is still a little big on me. Other then that, very nice helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Helment I ordered this helmet due to being tired of the plastic, adjustable piece in my other helmet. I ordered this helmet exact to my size, (not one size up as recommended) and it fit perfectly. Beautiful, soft leather and high quality. Chin strap has a velcro piece which can be irritating if worn on the wrong side. Vents really do work. Love my new helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice helmet! I was nervous about spending so much on a helmet, but I was tired of having to remove the plastic adjustable parts on less expensive models and wanted something that fit without dials. This helmet does fit, has a nicer profile, and is attractive in the leather.I bought it a little snug (I am between sizes) since I was told it would loosen up with wearing. Even so, it was comfortable from the first ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from About the sizing.... I'm not sure why the description recommends going up a size. I found just the opposite to be true, at least in the Long Oval; I had to go a size DOWN. I normally wear a 7 1/8 LO in hats, but need a 7 LO (or even a 6 7/8 LO) in this helmet.Anyway, I LOVE the leather skin. I ride more 'westerny' so the brown leather goes well with my tack, chaps etc. Haven't had a chance to ride in the hot summer with this helmet yet - fingers crossed that the vents will be adequate. I found the helmet to be lightweight even with the leather. I had a bit of sticker shock at the cost - would have dropped down to the less expensive Ultra helmet if it came in brown. But I figure an intact head is priceless and the helmet cost no more than a nice saddle pad. The reason I didn't give it five stars is because when I pulled out the removable liner, the permanent liner it was attached to pulled away from the helmet because the glue let go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Helmet I was looking for a helmet with lots of ventilation when I came across this one. I figured I would give it a try since it seemed to be everything I wanted in a helmet, but was a bit pricy. When it arrived I fell in love!! It is so comfortable and the ventilation is an amazing feature. Also, I love how the helmet is almost all leather, so it is extremely easy to keep clean unlike the velvet or fabric covered helmets. I've only been using this helmet for a short amount of time, but I can tell that it's high quality and will last for many years to come.
