schooling helmet?
 
I splurged this winter and bought myself a GPA helmet. With as many horses as i ride a day my helmets have a tendancy to wear out quickly! (haha, the padding wears thin, I don't fall off every day :lol: ) I can't afford to replace my GPA every other year! Anyone have any suggestions for a good schooling helmet? Something nicer then a Troxel, not quite a GPA Speed Air. It gets hot here so I need something with a lot of air flow.

My new Charles Owen has this buyback thingy where if it breaks or you need to replace it withink 5 years, you either get a free helmet or a certain percentage off your next helmet - it was expensive though..

I have this kind of helmet. I have had it for years and it is still working great, and I live in terrible 120 degree weather and I can stand this helmet in the summer.

Reeeeally? I wish GPA had a buy back thing like that! I was against spending hundreds of dollars for a helmet and rolled my eyes about the idea.... until I tried one on. :roll: It was like an addiction, I just couldn't fight it. It is incredible how much better it looked! I'm not sure how I justified buying it other then using Christmas money (it's a GPA Titium Pro). I like the CO's, but I wanted vents in the front. But now that I have it I have to make it last!

WadiDraa- I couldn't open the link! What kind is it?

Has anyone tried a Tipperary? I've heard good things about it, but always thought it looked kind of funny....

Sorry, I can't really tell you how they are in the summer; I just bought it in October.. :P
