eventers- what is your fave helmet?

What's your fave helmet for eventing? Dressage/stadium/cross country and do you use two helmets? I have an IRH for dressage (black with non interchangable dull black strip) for cross country and stadium i use a Charles Owen Pro II skull cap (gold of course!) let's see some pics!

I love my IRH helmet. However, I've tried my friend's Charles Owen and it's very, very comfortable. If this baby ever dies on me, my next helmet will be a CO.

I use my Skull Cap for all 3 phases. I will never do xc without my skull cap on.

I use a Charles Owen skull cap for all three as well. Used to use Tipperary, but now I am spoiled with my CO!

Just switched to a skull cap for the upcoming season. Old one was slipping and falling over my eyes at the most inconvenient times. Can't wait to try it out.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

IRH Olympian for when I need a dressy helmet. Tipperary Sportage for when I don't.

Charles Owen JR8 (black on black) for dressage and show jumping, Charles Owen Skull Cap for XC. I need a new skull cap, however, as mine is going on 6-7 years old and is about ready to be retired. Knock on wood, I have yet to fall off with either of my CO helmets, so I can't give personal experience in how protective they are, but they're super comfy!

I have an IRH kindof like the OP posted. When it is time for a new one, I want to get the new IRH that looks like a CO. CO's are sooo popular now. EVERYONE has them...I want to stand out!
