I've only drawn 3 plate assignments since getting the hockey style helmet but it's still been enough to be able to brag about how well the helmet breaths, how cool my head felt wearing it. Only one ball into the mask but the helmet absorbed a lot of the energy with the only "odd" thing being a light "tuning fork" sound from the foul ball - not sure yet if it was a freak foul ball or if I should expect this but I'll take it over how much of the impact I would have felt with my traditional mask.Review by Rothweiler (Posted on 5/1/14)
All in all, I think I am a permanent convert to the hockey helmet style and even more, do not think I could find one that is cooler - no more sweat rings on the plate cap.
This is my second helmet, I love it! I love the shock absorbers.Review by Killz (Posted on 6/13/13)
