My son's high school-issued helmet was a good product and performed well, but through the summer and in to the beginning of practice he was having trouble with comfort. Then in week 1, while playing QB, he took a helmet-to-helmet hit from a DE. The hit he took was exacerbated by lack of comfort to begin with so we started shopping for new helmet. I was first a little apprehensive about the price, but my wife said "we have paid more for a baseball bat" which really put the safety and comfort aspect into perspective. The only thing I would change is not waiting until his senior year to make the purchase. Number one it's comfortable with great safety technology. Number two it looks great.
Great experience. Easy to order and the person I spoke with was very professional and knowledgeable. I have a level of security knowing that my son is protected by a great product.
Best helmet in the business...
