Why We Love This

The Samshield Shadowmatt Helmet is a mix between the rider's needs, the designer's creative energy, and the engineer's technical vision. This helmet has a polycarbonate outer shell that’s durable, lightweight, and treated with an anti-scratch matte finish that looks stylish, modern, and keeps it show ring ready at all times. The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density which provides a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact. Another safety feature is the semi-rigid chin strap and harness that reduce the risk of the helmet tipping forward during a fall. The internal comfort foam will mold to the unique shape of your head and never lose its shape, for a superior fit and level of comfort. It’s also removable and washable so you can say goodbye to stale and stinky helmets. Additionally, Samshield ensures maximum airflow through hidden vents that retains the elegance of the helmet without sacrificing breathability. Last but not least, this helmet is ASTM/SEI F1163-15 certified for your safety and peace of mind. 

Imported.

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Samshield Shadowmatt Helmet is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 116.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Helmet Great fit and great look. I had this helmet before a met with a big fall. The helmet protected my head very well, but wanted to replace it (as well had had the first Samshield for about 4 yrs, so another reason to replace it). With the foam removable, washable liner helmet fits perfectly. This helmet is comfortable and looks great. Smart Pak is the only place to buy helmets! They had no problem sending two sizes knowing one would be returned (free by the way!) I can't ask for more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I say.... I bought this after we moved to a new barn that required all riders to wear helmets (I ride Western so don’t usually wear one). I did a lot of research and bought 7 different Troxel styles online (sincerely regret that because they all made me look like a bobble head). Decided I needed to try on in a store, and originally decided I would be looking at the Tipperary ones but was willing to spend as much as the One K Defender. But I admitted to the sales girl that I kind of wanted to see what the fuss was about the Samshield, even though I definitely wasn’t willing to pay Samshield prices. After trying on the Ovation Protege, the Tipperary hybrid and Sportage and deciding that I didn’t have the right headshape for them, I went for the One K. And really liked it, especially the rose gold version. But then...I tried on the Samshield. And not only did it look best on me (isn’t that the most important thing?) but it actually fit the best and was the most comfortable. So I was forced to go with the Samshield, 3 rides later and I still love it. I also love the styling, it’s just a gorgeous helmet and feels just as expensive as it is. When I need to replace it I’ll definitely be getting a custom one but my plain shadow matte will do nicely for now. At first I had buyers remorse but as each day passes I love it more and more and don’t regret the high price, even for a Western rider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was "just right" I was returning to riding after a few years and needed a new helmet to start back up with. I planned to spend half as much as this, and didn't particularly like the look of the samshield. I tried on other helmets including similar styled ones from other brands and nothing quite fit right. After sending 8 helmets back I decided to try to samshield to see what the fuss was about, and as soon as I put it on my head it was like angels sang, it fit so perfectly and comfortably. I bought it for the fit and comfort, but I like its features as well such as the removable liner (and ability to change liner styles), the outer shell material and the air vent is small but effective. The chin strap took some getting used to because its more forward than other helmets but is comfortable when you get used to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fits!! Love this helmet & this is the second one I've gotten. It fits properly & I have a hard head to fit, & its comfortable & it stays put!
    Date published: 2018-09-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I felt a breeze on my forehead!!! After much urging from my trainer and barn friends who swear by his helmet, I gave up my comfy and ratty favorite “other brand” helmet. The chin strap took some getting used to as it sits more forward under your chin but the money in this helmet is the ventilation! When the wind blows at you, you can feel it inside your helmet! Weirdest but coolest phenomenon ever! That’s my favorite part!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love it. I really wanted to love this helmet. after wanting one for years I finally bit the bullet and bought one. When I put it on in my usual size it felt too small and it hurt my forehead, I returned it and went to a local tack store to try it on in different sizes after trying on about 3 of them I came to the conclusion that they just don't fit the shape of my head. I was really disappointed :(

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't like the fit This is a very nice looking helmet. However, while wearing it around the house to see if i liked it, the top of my head began to hurt. Looking inside there was very little cushion. Unfortunately i had to return it.
    Date published: 2018-03-27
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Junky for the Price For the price, this helmet should hold up much better than it does. I have had mine for just over a year, and even though I have taken extremely good care of it, keeping it under a cover, and in a bag in my tack box when not in use, the leather trim around the base has peeled off in places and the chrome paint has chipped off the plastic vents in the back. It looks tacky. I've got a Charles Owen that cost half as much and it has held up so much better. Samshields are a fad. Save your money and buy something else.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit my head! I really wanted a Samshield, but they just do not fit my head. They sit up high and wobble, no matter what I try to do about fixing the fit. Wound up returning this for a Charles Owen, which fits like a glove.
    Date published: 2018-01-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit helmet that is comfortable! I bought this item about a month ago and I absolutely love it! This is my new show helmet and it looks great at the hunter shows. It fits perfectly and is very comfortable.
