    Charles Owen AYR8 Plus Leather Look Helmet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Leather-Look I bought this helmet a month ago. I have such a large head that the newest helmet sizes do not fit me. They seem to be shells that have padding to allow for the growth of the younger riders with not much attention to adults with regular sizde heads who need helmets as well. In any event, I turned to Charles Owen because they have helmets have a realistic range that fit both small and extra-large heads. So, I selected the CO AYR8 because of its beauty and cooling elements. Its lovely profile belies the fact that it it's large enough to fit a size 73/4 (63+cm) head. I absolutely love it, and the price was SUPER!!! Thank you Charles Owen for helping to protect big-headed riders!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super sleek Bought a month ago and originally wanted a Samshield. This fit so much better and stands out in the show ring. Love how its vented and easy to clean but I wish it had a removable liner

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and comfortable fit! I have owned several Charles Own helmets and the AYR8 is the best by far! Fits great, easy to clean, love the vent in the front, and very durable helmet. The fabric held up very well and I'm excited to have the new leather look helmet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what was wanted. My niece from Switzerland knew exactly what she wanted and ordered it when she arrived at my farm. It arrived and she was able to use it when here helping school my horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So pretty I bought the helmet because I liked the look of it online, I've never actually tried one on before. So I had to rely on the size chart, and thankfully the helmet fit perfectly. It looks wonderful in person and it's been holding up really well. There are no marks on it at all. I don't love the "leather" on the chin strap though, I'm a little concerned that it will irritate my sensitive skin in the summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pretty! I love the look of this helmet - easy to clean - and looks great on. Very comfortable. Have not ridden in it much so can't comment on if it keeps your head cool in the summer months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! Only worn this helmet a couple of times but I love it. So easy to clean and the sleek look is fantastic. So happy I bought this helmet!

    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!
