We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love It

The J3 Helmet is a favorite of the cross country rider!  The unsurpassed design and function of the J3 makes it Charles Owen's most popular jockey skull cap.  Low profile for a sleeker look and multiple vents keep you cooler so you can focus on the jump ahead of you!

Favorite Features

  • Low profile structure reduces bulk

  • Suede lined leather harness extends to the nape of the neck, soft to the touch
  • Headband is interwoven with silver ions throughout the lining, providing anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors
  • Adjustable rear padding permits the rider to customize the fit to their individual needs
  • Includes a matte silk cover embroidered with the Charles Owen logo
  • Kitemarked to PAS015 and BSEN1384 also certified by SEI to ASTM F1163-15

Charles Owen J3 Helmet is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second one. I loved the first one. If you want to look classy for the hunt field or something, you just buy a velvet cover. Fits nice and snug and feels as if it covers the base of my skull too--doesn't just "perch" like some helmets I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits really well I initially bought the Charles Owen Pro II helmet but wasn't happy with the fit. Sent it back to Smartpak and exchanged for the J3. was a bit sceptical about purchasing a helmet on line but customer service excellent and this helmet fits really well. It's not coming off!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 years later I bought the same thing I bought this helmet 6 years ago from another distributor. I took a bad fall recently (and it was time to replace...) and I did my due diligence among other Charles Owen models and some other top brands. I really wanted to change it up, but this was the best fit, price, and features all in one. So good I went for round two!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! This is my second J3 - this model is by far the most comfortable helmet around! I seem to be in between sizes (67/8 and 7) in Charles Owens helmets; my last J3 was a 7 but after the padding broke in the helmet would wobble a bit when landing off of big jumps. I opted for a 6 7/8 this time and it seemed a little snug at first but after wearing it, I think it will be fine (no headaches or anything after I take it off).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just not for me! I really wanted to love this product. I purchased it on Helmet Awareness Day and got it for a great price. When it arrived, it just wasn't for me. The fit is WAY too small, it was actually painful. I can't attest to whether it fits better over time but even had I decided I liked the style, I would have had to order up for size. I didn't like how the material on the helmet was scratchy, and the helmet cover appeared cheaper in person than in pictures. On my head, it looked MASSIVE. That may just be skull caps being skull caps (I've never had one) but it just wasn't something I could see myself wearing. I realize I will probably have to purchase a similar product for eventing eventually....but until I'm forced to cross that bridge I will be on the hunt for something way more lower profile.I will give it this in it's defense....it did look SUPER safe!
