    Tipperary Sportage Helmet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 513.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, attractive, and great fit I bought this helmet for my son who is 9. It's a good looking helmet with plenty of options for adjusting fit with the foam inserts that come with it. It seems to be slightly more oval shaped - a little tighter on the sides of the head than other helmets we tried, but it still works great for his head. My favorite part about it is how far down it comes in the back. It means my son can't push the front way up over his forehead like he tends to do with other helmets, so he is definitely getting better protection with the Tipperary Sportage. I'm so glad we got this helmet and will definitely purchase another whenever we're ready for a replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe safe safe I've used this helmet multiple times for multiple years while on OTTB off the track/re train for eventing and had multiple occasions where I had a fall with back head hit. Full coverage on the back. Never had a concussion, never had a headache, never even slowed me down. I have nice show helmets but completely trust this as my day to day "always" helmet especially with the air flow in the Texas heat.
    Date published: 2020-06-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good airflow! I tend to overheat in the summer and the ventilation in this helmet is very helpful! The fit is secure and it’s lightweight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cost effective helmet. This is my third Tippperary Sportage, It's comfortable and in hot weather I like the air vents. The only downside with this particular helmet is I'm having trouble getting the chin strap adjusted properly.
    Date published: 2019-10-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfort at a great value Use for everyday schooling and am quite pleased with the comfort and fit. It was a bit cumbersome to adjust the chin strap at first but has been fine since.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Schooling Helmet I bought this to replace a very old Troxel schooling helmet. It's a lot better looking than my old, clunky white helmet. It's really comfortable and I like how the padding can be adjusted to improve the fit. It's secure and much cooler than other helmets I tried. It also has more coverage on the back of my head. I like the fact that I can remove some of the padding to make room for a thin beanie when riding in cold weather. As a bonus, my big helmet visor fits right over the visor attached to the hard had. It's a good combo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and comfortable I’ve had these helmets for years and have always been happy with them. Old ones expired and the new ones did not disappoint.
    Date published: 2019-10-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the new one even better than the old Just replaced my old Sportage since it was seven years old and has taken a few hard knocks. The new sizing and pads make for a better fit than the previous model, it has bigger vents and seems less bulky overall. Really pleased, can’t wait to put it to the test!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat! I get hat when I need a new one and have purchased for my family members as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Bought one a year ago, recently I had an accident on my horse barrel racing. If I wasn't wearing my helmet I'm not sure if I would be here to type this. Ordered my replacement helmet after this incident. Tipperary offers a 2 year reduced price replacement warranty if you have an accident. Be sure to register your helmet as soon as you get it! Love this helmet and highly recommend it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lost a Few Pounds I purchased the Sportage after trying on a friend’s helmet. It’s a small and it fits correctly and is lighter than my last helmet. The vents help with air circulation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, looks good! We all know that helmets are as helmets are. We wear them for head protection first, appearance second. When fitted correctly, the helmet should not fall off your head when you bend over (learned that one from a jumping instructor.) The most important helmet is the one that you will wear, and the Sportage is a good choice. VERY lightweight, great for summer riding. It's made to fit your head and you can change the padding around a bit. For instance, my head is a little more oval, not round, so this helmet puts a hair too much pressure on the front and back of my head. But because the padding can be moved, I can make it fit just perfect. That's how close you can get the fit of this helmet. It's great!
    Date published: 2019-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new helmet. So comfortable Almost wore it home. Forgot it was on my head. Now, that's comfortable! The fit was right on per the measurement guide when ordered. Good ventilation. I am very happy with my new helmet. I hope I never "need" it but will be glad to have it on if I ever do. I am 62, female & just got my horse last Fall, or should I say Autumn as to not jinx myself. :)
    Date published: 2019-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and fits my head well. I bought this helmet about a month ago to wear for the summer months. I moved from upstate NY to NC where I have to adjust to the humidity. I think this helmet will more comfortable and cooler than my older helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Larger Heads (or bigger hairstyles)! I recently had an ethnic braiding hairstyle done and was told my regular helmet would fit over it. It didn’t, and I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to find a helmet that fit my head for my upcoming rated show. All of the other large/extra large helmets I researched were over $400...I started to lose hope...until I tried this helmet. In XL, it had no problem fitting my head and hairstyle, all at a reasonable price! With a little finer adjustments with the padding, it fit perfectly! I am so glad I gave this a try!
    Date published: 2019-03-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from safe and comfortable! I've had one of these for years. My horse tripped and fell on me and it saved my life 8 years ago. I am a repeat customer for this helmet - it is all I will ever ride in! I am in the southeast, so it is HOT, but I never have an issue with this helmet. It is like I'm not even wearing one, but know that I will be safe in it!
    Date published: 2018-10-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for long oval heads! I've tried a lot of helmets and always come back to the Tipperary Sportage. It fits, it's comfortable and I'll buy another one, when I need a helmet.
    Date published: 2018-09-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally - a schooling helmet that fits. My purple helmet! When Troxel changed their retention/fitting system a few years ago, the Dakota helmet no longer fit. Plus, I have never been able to wear a dial-fit in any brand. The Tipperary Sportage, through the use of movable padding, is a perfect fit for my size 6 1/2 head. Most importantly in S. Louisiana, it's cool!
    Date published: 2018-09-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Fits my daughter perfectly and is a great helmet for kids. Stays in place and doesn’t bounce around. Great quality materials.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great helmet but not a fit for me I really wanted this helmet but I’m guessing I have an oval head and it fits a round, lots of pressure against my forehead
    Date published: 2018-09-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the carbon fiber look Helmet is very comfy. My hat size is 6 3/4 so I went with the Medium and added in the extra padding they provided. Fits great now. Light weight and venting should help on those hot and humid days. Cute color choices.
    Date published: 2018-09-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best helmet for round heads!! I absolutely love this helmet!!! It fits my larger, round head like a glove! The price point is wonderful too. It's very light weight and well ventilated as well.
    Date published: 2018-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good protection pretty color This is my 2nd tipperary sportage helmet in about 4 years. I really like the bright color. It is comfortable and once I put it on I forget about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday helmet! Bought about a month ago to keep my show helmet nice. Love this helmet, really great airflow. Best price!
    Date published: 2018-07-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best helmet for schooling! I bought this helmet in matte black at my local tack store a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I did! I have always used Troxel helmets and they were very unflattering on me. This helmet actually looks good, and I love how protective it is for the back of the head. I recommend this helmet 100%!
    Date published: 2018-05-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable, fun colors! I really like this helmet for several reasons- it comes down just a bit more in the back, so it really protects the back of the head. It is lightweight, and has lots of air vents, so it keeps your head cooler. Comes with foam inserts so you can customize the fit! It is very comfortable, and came in a variety of nice colors. I was able to get purple!
    Date published: 2018-05-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Very comfortable. Color wasn't a cocoa brown, more of a dark chocolate. But better than black which I didn't want.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent helmet for riding Love the color and the fit. I only had to change out a couple pads for a perfect fit. It's light weight and breathes well, which is important in this New Mexico heat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Comfortable This helmet is so comfortable. The air vents help considerably (I tend to sweat a lot). An added bonus is how lightweight and low-profile it is. Great purchase at an amazing price!
