cowboy hat helmet?

Has anyone ever bought a helmet that looks like a cowboy hat? Or possibly made one? My question is if they look ridiculous or not. I feel like I would be way more inclined to wear a helmet if it was more stylish and more efficient at keeping the sun out of my eyes.... but mostly for the looks. Any suggestions? I have a relatively small head to start with, would the hat helmet look huge?

I've never seen anything like that.

A helmet shouldn't be worn because of fashion. Maybe as a secondary reason, but the first and foremost important thing should be protection.

Years ago I saw a hat that was made to be worn over a helmet. Haven't seen it advertised for a long time so it must not have done to well.

They had them, cowboy hat helmets, but they were bulky and didnt sell well iirc.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

Troxel used to make a cowboy hat helmet, but I believe they discontinued it, because it wasn't as popular as they thought it would be. They did seem to look a bit bulky. You could try their website to see if they still have them listed on the website.

If you just want the sun out of your eyes but a cashel helmet visor.

They made them. They looked really stupid....

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Ok sounds like they aren't very attractive. Does anyone know of any helmets that are flattering on a small head? I always end up looking like I had a bowling ball on my head with the helmet I have now.
