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'!).

Have you ever gotten to the barn only to find that your helmet is still wet from the last time you rode? Even worse, there's that smell! Well we found the solution!

Designed by experienced riders, the Fresh Helmet Sack eliminates that musty, moldy helmet smell. Activated carbon neutralizes odors caused by everyday use and perspiration, rather than simply masking them. A desiccant helps sweat and perspiration dry quicker and more completely. Just toss it in your helmet after each ride and you'll find a fresher, drier helmet next time you ride!

Your helmet is an investment and the Helmet Sack is a great way to help prolong it's life.

    Fresh Helmet Sack is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I was in the retail store complaining about my helmet, how wet and smelly it was even in the dead of winter. Olivia perked up and said "I have just the thing for you!" I was skeptical that this would work, but am I ever pleased with it. I just toss it into my helmet after I ride, and by the next day it is dry and fresh. Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps expensive helmet fresh I bought this for my daughter, to keep inside her show helmet. With bad weather, she has been riding under light rain and i was worried it would smell bad. Saw this sack on SP and did not hesitate to try it. Price is good and was shipped along with our horse's supplements. So far, has worked good and no humidity or odors. Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working! I purchased this when I purchased my new helmet because I didn't want to keep spraying stuff into it all the time. It's about the size of your hand; not too big, and not too small. It dries my helmet out very quickly, and has kept any odors away thus far. Would it work on an already-stinky helmet? Probably not. But if it's fresh from the start, it does a great job maintaining that "new" feeling, and no more wet helmet in the summer! I was skeptical of this purchase at first, but in the end I'm glad I got it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For maintenance use! I couldnt really tell a difference. I have had 4 years of build up in my helmet and it SMELLS even with occasional washing of the liner. So I bought this in hopes that I could lengthen my tolerance of the smell so I didn't have to buy a new helmet. Though, I have not noticed a difference between rides. I think my helmet is just cant be helped and past the point of no return. I think this product may help with maintenance but not restoration! Other than that it fit great in my GPA and helmet bag and no complaints about the quality of the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more sweaty helmet smell!! My helmet absorbs a lot of sweat and no amount of deodorizer seemed to help. So I decided to try the Fresh Helmet Sack, although I didn't expect it to work, I was willing to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! I drop the sack in my helmet after a lesson and it's dry and doesn't smell the next time I use it. Amazing!! I've already recommended it to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with moisture and therefore smell I purchased one of these for my riding helmet and one for my husband's cycling helmet. We both sweat profusely in the summer and wanted something to help dry out our helmets between rides and hopefully help with the smell too. Our liners are machine washable, but we didn't want to be washing them daily. These sacks do seem to help and achieve their purpose. Now I wash my helmet liner once a week and it doesn't smell between washings. Be sure to keep the instructions which tell you how to rejuvenate the sacks too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Summer Riding! I have been using one of these since last summer. IMO, this item is not for un-stinking an already-stinky helmet, it's for keeping your helmet from getting stinky in the first place. This time of year it's invaluable, because I ride, I sweat, my helmet gets all damp, and I just toss this thing into the helmet and by the next day, my helmet is dry enough that I wouldn't know I'd just worn (and sweated into it) the previous day. I bought this at the same time I got a brand helmet. My old Ovation schooling helmet was stored outside my tack trunk to air dry between riding, but it still got that Helmet Funk, and it only took about 3 months for that to happen. I've had the Troxel for a year, and it still doesn't have that Funk, and I'm pretty sure it's because of this helmet sack.If you already have Helmet Funk, this probably won't fix it, but it will keep you from getting the Funk to start with.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
