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.

Additional Helmet Liners Available!

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
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 118.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! Bought this on sale on helmet awareness day. Most comfortable helmet I have ever owned! Lighter & better airflow than my old IRH, and absolutely no comparison to the stuffy, heavy CO Ayr8 I tried on. Totally worth the price to be comfortable and protected. Love that SmartPak does free returns on sized items… It allowed me to order and try on in home, since my local tack shop did not stock my size in any of the brands/models I was interested in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST EVER I really didn't want to spend the money but so glad I did. I decided my head was worth it and glad I did.
    Date published: 2017-10-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit My 2 previous helmets either didn't feel right or were uncomfortable. This one fits perfectly. The quality and construction of this helmet is top notch, and it's great the liners are interchangeable so you can perfectly customize the fit. The result is that I forget I'm even wearing it, with no compromise to safety. Looks great too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering! My old GPA model was discontinued so I was looking for a simple but flattering helmet. The fit is great (I have a round head). The vents also do work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design Bought this for my son who is on the University of Alabama Equestrian Team and he loves the fit and the overall "look" of this helmet.
    Date published: 2017-07-25
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I didn't like it It is a good shape for an oval head but I felt like it looked very mushroom looking. It seemed to pop up off my head and didn't set down snug on my skull like I expect a good helmet to do. I tried different sizes with no luck. It is also heavier then the Charles Owen. I also didn't care for the closed harness in the back. I returned it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, Comfortable, Safe and Secure I needed a new helmet. Loved the way the Samshield Shadow Matte Helmet looked online. Bought the helmet in the same size as my Charles Owen. Perfect fit. Looks and feels good. My head feels protected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great, super comfortabe I really like how this helmet fits. I can also feel the air flow through the front of the helmet. I'm getting used to the different position of the chin strap as it fits differently from my ancient GPA. Looks great too!
    Date published: 2017-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite helmet ever I have had my Samshield for over a year now and I still rant/rave about it like I got it yesterday. It is lightweight and breathable... Really so comfortable. Most of the time I forget I am wearing a helmet. It's nice to have it on and forget about it but still know I am protected if my noggin hits the ground!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING HELMET! I bought this helmet about 2 months ago wondering what the hype was about. I wore it to ride and the instant I put it on I was in love! It is extremely comfortable and the padding is amazing! Even though it is a little pricy, it is worth it and it is good quality.
    Date published: 2017-02-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I got this helmet last month and it is great! I have a really big head and thick hair so it's hard to find a helmet that fits me. The padding is amazing. I never get any headaches at all! This helmet is true to size. ordered a 7 1/2 based on the size chart and my thick hair also fits. Definitely won't be getting a new helmet anytime soon.
    Date published: 2016-12-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A helmet I trust! I have had a wide variety of helmets in the past, everything from Troxel, IRH, Ovation, and Charles Owen. IMO by far the best helmet I have ever worn is my Samshield. It fits my round head very nicely and is easy to achieve a custom fit through their exchangeable liner system. The excellent fit and quality construction has saved my head from a fall in one instance and their replacement program is excellent. As someone who has experienced a concussion from a fall in a helmet of questionable quality, I will always invest in a quality helmet and Samshield certainly fits the bill.
    Date published: 2016-12-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Helmet I looked at black and brown at a retail store and really like the Shadow color. Sort of a soft black. The only place I could find the Shadow color was Smartpak.
    Date published: 2016-11-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS HELMET!!! I have the standard Samshield Shadow Matt Helmet and I am absolutely IN LOVE! This helmet is comfy, ventilated, and fitted. It is perfect. This helmet was definitely a splurge but it was worth every penny. I definitely recommend this helmet. It is easy to clean (damp rag) and I have the normal liner...which I just throw in the wash. I also have the premium liner so that I can put my hair in it without buying another helmet. These are gorgeous and are the hype for a reason.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bought as a B-Day gift for my daughter. My review is just average. My daughter has wanted this helmet FOREVER. Bought it as a bday present and didn't fit;( When I called you exchange for the correct size, I was told I could re-order it and pay again, I would receive a credit once the incorrect size was returned... Since the helmet is $450, I opted to return the helmet and wait... I'm still waiting... No verification the helmet was received or the correct size is coming... Nearly two weeks later??? Also, the sizing is deceiving... You'd think the sizes would be listed from smallest to biggest, but that is not the case... I should've purchased in a store to ensure proper fit. Generally love Smartpak, but kinda frustrated on this one:(
    Date published: 2016-10-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish I have trouble fitting helmets-- Charles Owens don't fit right. apparently I have an oval not round shape. By his helmet fits so well. Sizing with a tape measure of my head worked perfectly. I have short hair so didn't have to adjust for a ponytail folded up and inside the helmet. I am comforted knowing I'm protecting my head with such a well-regarded helmet. Not sure about durability since I've only had it a couple months.
    Date published: 2016-10-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable and Attractive Helmet EVER! I bought this a month ago on National Helmet Awareness Day (the sale price helps!). I have a CO and another Samshield helmet, and this one is by far the most comfortable. I have an oval shaped head with a high forehead, so most helmets are somewhat uncomfortable and leave a red mark after an hour or two. This one is amazing-no discomfort, no red marks, super comfortable!!! Why didn't anyone use memory foam before????? Just wore it at a show, and had it on for 4-5 hours at a time. It looked great and stayed comfy, even in 95 degree weather. I would highly, highly recommend this! Buy it! Worth every single penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with this helmet You might need to go a size up. Usually 1/4 and had to go 3/8. Love this helmet though!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Customized I bought this helmet to wear every day while training young horses. I love the development that went into this helmet. Most days it is on my head 5-7 hours! Not only does it fit perfect but my head is never sweaty when I take it off. Function and fashion!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everything Bought this a few weeks ago and I'm super happy with it, true to size chart and all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I have never worn any brand helmet other than a Charles Owen. I heard that the Samshield was light and that it had removable liner. I am so glad that I decided to try this helmet. It is so comfortable, it looks great, it is so much cooler than my Charles Owen and I can remove the liner to wash when it gets stinky. I could not be any happier about my new helmet!
    Date published: 2016-09-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such good quality! Bought this helmet to use for schooling an showing a month ago and I LOVE it. Great ventalation keeps my head cool while I'm riding and the padding is so soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury helmet! I love this helmet! It fits perfectly and is very comfortable. Very high quality and I like the chrome accents and the snap out washable liner.
    Date published: 2016-09-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Seriously this helmet lives up to all of the hype. The memory foam is so comfortable and cool while keeping the helmet securely in place. The chin strap is ergonomic and flattering. The matte finish looks polished and clean. I never thought I'd switch from Charles Owen helmets, but I think I'm a convert! I wear a 7 in CO and found the Samshields ran the same. The ventilation is way better on the Samshield than the CO AYR8. Definitely recommend!
