We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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'!).

Charles Owen Wellington Professional is the latest helmet in their extensive range, which continually evolves to provide riders with an ever increasing choice of headgear.

  • The low profile GR8 style silhouette is covered with a microfiber suede material.
  • The peak of the helmet has been re-styled to be broader and squarer in a shape, which flatters the face and shades the eyes slightly more.
  • The uniquely soft snug fitting microfiber suede lined harness extends to the nape of the neck.
  • An integral adjustable drawstring enables adjustment and fit of the harness at the base of the skull.

A super soft headband ensures comfort in all conditions. The lining also features interwoven silver ions, providing anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors.  A centrally fixed metallic badge features the Charles Owen logo, which is repeated in an embroidered form on the back of the helmet.

Regarding safety, the Charles Owen Wellington Professional is certified by SEI to ASTM F1163.

    Charles Owen Wellington Pro Helmet is rated 4.8824 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and comfortable Love this helmet! Considering it's not really vented in any way, it actually breathes VERY well. Black microsuede is to clean and doesn't fade. Very comfortable helmet - it's a bit rounder than the other Charles Owens, such as the AYR8 and the GR8 (they are a bit ore oval) so if those have not worked for you, try this. The Wellington Pro also has a slightly larger visor and is better for sun protection. My only complaint is that this particular helmet seems to run a bit bigger than the other Charles Owens, so you might want to consider ordering down a size - I have been a 7 1/4 in my last two J3 skull caps and bought a 7 1/4 in this and it is a tad too large for my liking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, little expensive Although the COs are a better value than the GPAs, they are still expensive. I like this helmet a lot, despite the cost. It is comfortable and is cool, even in the summer. I also think it is classier than the GPAs, at about 75% of the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my really big head I bought this helmet to fit my larger head and square face. The leather accent on the back is very nice and it doesn't look awkward.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Duck Bill I ordered this helmet in the wrong size, but I plan to order a different one. While the overall appearance was pleasing and I didn't look like I had a bowling ball on my head, the bill on this helmet is much bigger than usual. The square shape along with the length of the bill made me look like a duck. I sent it back for the more traditional GR8. Overall a very comfortable helmet and probably excellent for jumping outside in bright sunlight. Also the back cusp of the helmet is leather and looks much more elegant than pictured.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I have a real small head and this helmet fits me perfectly. It does move around on me. Stays in place and looks great. The initial cost is higher but worth the extra money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wellington Pro Purchase I have a very large head and thick hair and the Wellington Pro was one of the only helmets to fit. It is a great helmet and will last for a long time (worth the money). I recommend if you want a sturdy helmet for a long period of time to chose the Wellington Pro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This helmet is so comfortable... I have a large oval head, so trying to find a helmet that fits and it not huge is definitely difficult... this helmet fits like a glove and is so nice. It also has such a nice low profile! Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I loved the GR8 but it made me look like I had a huge head...kind of like a battle helmet. But this one has a lower profile and a different brim and I think it is more flattering. Very comfortable and very stylish, love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Upgraded GR8!!! It is hard to believe that Charles Owen could improve on the GR8 helmet, but they have! The Wellington Pro has a very subtle padding at the base of the helmet that provides extra protection but also makes your head feel like it is cradled in comfort. The quick clip closure is much more convenient and easy, especially if you are taking your helmet on and off a lot or unbuckling between rides. The distinctive Charles Owen Logo is still on the front and back of the helmet just like the GR8 so you still get that great look that you see in the Eq. ring these days. Yeah Charles Owen for making something good even better and yeah SmartPak for picking it up so quickly!
