Tell Me the Truth About Helmets!

So, as I'm mentioned I'm preparing for my riding comeback. Boy do I feel ancient! I read on another forum that velvet helmets are not, not cool for schooling! Wow this makes me sad - I LOVE my helmet. But I can take the truth - will I look like some old lady with my velvet helmet?!

Then, the next step is: what do I get and why?!

Thanks and hearts!

I have my velvet helmet, I love it and I need a new one, so im searching for a new velvet one that I love just as much... im having a hard time.... haha.
Do you mean one of those old velvet helmets? I would recommend getting a new one because that one wont protect your head very well. But they make new velvet ones!!!

I like the plain velvet helmets. They look so much more classic and not like you're wearing some strange plastic sculpture on your head..

I ride in a velvet helmet, and no one looks sideways at me. If they do, it's my shonky riding, not the helmet =P

Oh, I feel so much better! One of the things I love about riding is the timeless quality of so much of it. I'm not a very traditional person, but the traditions I love I really love!

I've never seen them at any of the shows in Montana but when I went to horse trials in NZ that's almost all I saw. I think it depends on your area -- I don't think anyone would look at you sideways for wearing one.

I agree, I LOVE the tradition of velvet helmets

I have a low profile plastic type helmet for schooling, and a velvet helmet for showing.

I just have a velvet cover for my helmet that I stick on it for showing. That way it stays nice and clean tucked away in my bag of show things.

I really like the look of velvet helmet. I may get one for myself later on. The only problem it's so dusty here that it won't look nice anymore (while I can just whip off my plastic one).
