Why We Love This

Elegantly styled, the jR8 Plus is an economical helmet that exceeds required safety standards both in the US and Europe, keeping you safe in the saddle. Low-profile and covered in weather-resistant microfiber suede with a soft, adjustable nylon harness, the jR8 has sizes in both oval and round head shapes. Ventilation holes at the back create a cooler ride while the removable, washable headband can be easily replaced to extend the lifespan of your helmet. Safety has never looked so good and been this affordable!

Charles Owen jR8 Plus Helmet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 178.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This helmet saved my life! I bought this helmet I think around 3-4 years ago and it was my schooling helmet. I was in love with it because it fit my head so well. The other day I was jumping a thoroughbred that has a naughty habit of throwing his head between his legs after a jump, which he proceeded to do and ripped the reins out of my hands. He then bucked and threw me over his head where I flipped and landed on my head. I escaped the fall with just a mild concussion (and a severely sprained ankle but that was because my foot got stuck). If it hadn't been for this helmet I probably wouldn't have walked away with the injury I did. I owe this helmet my life and will definitely be replacing my broken one with the same model as I loved it so much and trust it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful helmet My old Charles Owen, was 8 years old and due to be replaced. I really wanted a good fit and couldn’t go to a store to try them on. Because I wasn’t sure of the size, I went with Smart Pak because of their return policy. Checked measurements carefully and the helmet fits perfect! It is attractive and comfortable, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this helmet! I bought this helmet because I always wanted a Charles Owen but most didn’t look good on my round head. I love how this one looks and it fits great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I needed a new helmet and went through Smart pak because they are so good about returns. I was more then happy the first and only helmet I ordered fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great helmet! I bought this about a year ago and it has held up so well! The oval shape fits my head like a dream and I can wear my hair down or up with it! The only problem with it is the ventilation, so that’s why it got a 4. It gets really hot on summer days. I also showed in it multiple times, and it doesn’t make my head look huge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this for my granddaughter who is beginning riding lessons. Her instructor recommends this brand and measured her for it. It fits perfectly and will add the protection she needs while looking stylish, too. We were pleased with the lower price in this WebSite as compared to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit! I was a little worried about how this would fit, as I have a pretty big head, but this helmet fit like a glove. It feels so comfy! And it's very stylish and looks very classy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have only worn this once since it will be my show helmet but I’ve got a show this weekend and I know i will be comfortable! It is super comfy and very pretty. It fit well and looks very good on! I would definitely recommend this as a less expensive really nice co.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Helmet I ordere this helmet for my daughter's birthday, per her request. She had tried on several and liked this Charles Owen. When it came in, it was a tad small. Smarkpak exchanged it at no additional cost and even paid for shipping. Thank you Smartpak! The helmet is sturdy and high quality. My daughter loves it and I feel like she is safer having it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love! So I bought this three weeks ago as I needed a new helmet for show season but also needed new show clothes and tall boots cause I aged out of garders. I bought this one and love it!! Lots of people say that it's super hot but I love in Florida and works just like my old Ayr8. Thanks Charles Owen and smart pak!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet! I just ordered this helmet for the second time. I love CO helmets (I have a skull cap for cross country and an AYR8 that I finally splurged on for dressage and show jumping!). I use the JR8 as my every day schooling helmet, though it does look nice enough that I've used it several times at schooling and recognized shows. I noticed the other day that the foam lining was starting to break down, so I checked the label and realized that I have been using it since October 2010! I took reasonably good care of it, stored it in a helmet bag and almost always kept it inside, but I really cleaned it pretty minimally and used it almost every day. The outside surface of the helmet still looks new, and I think that the main reason for the deterioration of the lining is because I ride in it every day during Texas summers! I can't wait to get my new one and definitely recommend this helmet for every day use or for shows.
Date published: 2016-09-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable! I have had this helmet for around three years and I absolutely love it! It was my first expensive and nice helmet and it is super comfortable. The only thing is it has gotten dirty, which is expected and I'm finding it hard to clean so I think the cleaner is a good thing to purchase at the same time as the helmet.
Date published: 2016-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charles Owens at a more reasonable price I bought this helmet as my first more expensive helmet because I wanted something a little more formal for the show ring. After riding in Troxels and cheaper Ovations, it was really a nice step up. The helmet is very stylish and even though it says it's a "junior" helmet, it looks fine on me even though I'm an adult with a larger head. Although I bought it just for shows, now it's my primary riding helmet, since it's too nice to just save for special occasions. The chin strap is not my favorite, but it's something I was willing to compromise on for the bargain price. I've recently just purchased an AYR8 helmet as well though, since this one doesn't have much ventilation which may pose a problem as it gets warmer for the summer. I still plan on keeping this one as a back-up, since I ride at a couple different barns and it's nice to have an extra.
Date published: 2016-04-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good helmet for the price This helmet fits well and is very comfortable. I like that it covers the whole head, including fully covering the back of the head. It looks very nice and can be worn for schooling and shows. The only part I wish was different is the chin strap. It fits well, but is not as nice as the other chin straps that fully wrap around the ears to the chin.
Date published: 2016-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely helmet, reasonable price I bought this as an upgrade from my Troxel. I wanted something a little nicer for showing, but I can't fathom buying a $500 helmet that will only last a maximum of 5 years if I don't have a fall. They have the replacement if you fall, for a discounted price, which made me a little more comfortable buying it. While it says junior, it's not limited in sizing (I'm 34 and have a big head: size 7 1/4). It looks nice, especially for showing. I'd recommend finding it in a store first to try on, since it doesn't really adjust much, but it's much cheaper here.
Date published: 2016-02-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great! Really great fit, very comfortable. My only issue with it is that it's got no vents which can be a problem in the summer
Date published: 2015-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I just upgraded from a Troxel to this helmet and I've never been happier!! Definitely a must have. Looks classy for both schooling and at shows!
