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'!).

Why We Love This

The ASTM-SEI certified New Sportage 8500 from Tipperary includes all of the features that the original Tipperary helmet is most famous for. Listening to riders' feedback they have integrated the original style, fit and ventilation that made it the most comfortable and one of the lightest helmets on the market.

Favorite Features

  • Lightweight, high density ABS material provides superior resistance to high impact
  • Functional low profile
  • Drop back shell for increased protection and a secure fit reducing helmet rotation 
  • Reflective band for safer rides in low light conditions
  • Ventilation system provides increased airflow for a cooler, more comfortable ride
  • Soft touch leather with reinforced nylon harness
  • Soft, rubberized, low profile flexible visor

ASTM-SEI certified.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite helmet! This is my...3rd Sportage! I love this helmet - it's comfortable, feels sturdy without being heavy, and looks decent when on. Love the vents too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent helmet I had my original Sportage for about 4 years before I fell in it. I will say that it didn't move in the fall and while I did sustain a concussion, my injury would have been much worse without it. I liked the fit, durability and air flow so much, I bought a replacement identical to my helmet damaged in the fall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Helmet yet I have purchased four helmets in the past 4 years because each time after wearing them for riding they either got very uncomfortable or actually gave me a headache. The Tipperary Sportage has felt great, in fact I forget I have it on!!! I did have to adjust the fit with the pads and Velcro provided. They had a good video on fitting their helmets on their website www.phoenixperformance.com . I am very pleased with the price too.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This was a replacement because the interior fabric of my previous Sportage came apart, apparently due to sweat. And, compared to other riders, let alone people, I don't sweat all that much. I expect this new one to do the same, but I'm purchasing another brand helmet anyway because I can't keep the straps away from my ears, and that:s really annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Helmet, especially for large heads! I recently purchased a different helmet from SmartPak in the largest size they offer. When it arrived I was disappointed that it was too small, even with all the 'adjustment' padding removed. Imagine my delight when I discovered I could return it and try another helmet! Thank you SmartPak!The Tipperary Sportage is one of the few helmets available for 60 cm head circumference so I requested it as a trade/replacement. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised that it did indeed fit and was true to the marked size (unlike some others that seem to run a bit smaller than an accurate measurement). I was also pleased that the materials and finish of this helmet are noticeably better than the other (very popular brand) helmet I started with. It's a light weight helmet with full coverage that is comfortable and doesn't look like a mushroom perched on my head. The day it arrived I put it on to check that it wouldn't develop pressure points after extended wear. I forgot I had it on after a few minutes and wore it for several hours without noticing it. Now that I've seen the Tipperary Sportage in person I would highly recommend it even if you're head is smaller. But if you have a large-ish head I suspect you'll be as pleased as I am with one.

    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...
