Tipperary sportage
 
I just got my tipperary sportage helmet in the other day, and so far, I really like it! It's nice and light, and I like the air vents, although I haven't ridden in it yet. It is comfortable, but it does look a bit big on me because I am only 13 and I take a large helmet size (big head!) so it doesn't really have the low profile look.

So what do you sportage users like about your helmet? Sorry about not capitalizing things, I'm on an ipad and I'm being XP

I really like it because it fits my head shape better than other brands I've had in the past. As far as the low profile, it's definitely more-so than my last helmet :) I love my Tipperary! haha

I rode in these all the time UNTIL I fell off my horse and the whole helmet cracked open! I have been riding in other helmets now

Sounds like it did its job. Better the helmet crack open than your skull. As with any helmet, you are supposed to get a new one after an accident

I have one and I really like it. It isn't heavy or clunky. Glad to know they will take the impact and keep my head uncracked. I can get a new helmet - I can't get a new head!

It did exactly what it was meant to do; protect your head while taking the brunt of the impact. Other helmets also break in two when they're hit like that, so changing helmet brands makes no sense.

I'm a big fan of my Sportage. It's the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned.

I love mine!!

It's very comfortable all day. And it's not so bulky, as I have a smaller size head.

Did I mention I had a very severe concussion?

So? You'd have had a TBI if the helmet hadn't protected your head.
