Are there any other brands of custom cross country helmet covers other then Sipp Silks? I am currently shopping for ALL new eventing gear for Aiken in less then a month and a half, so i have a few questions. I know i want dark navy as the color, with a different color chevrons. I can't decide between dark navy with raspberry red color chevrons outlined with white or kelly green chevrons outlined with white. Here's a picture i made in pain to visualize the colors. Let me know which one you prefer and what colors you guys have for cross country. I can't decide! My horse is black with a big white blaze if that helps.

And my second (maybe third) question for you guys is where on earth do you get custom poly pads? Do i have to make one myself? I've seen people with poly pads that have a different color trim and cant seem to find them anywhere online. Maybe it's a different brand? Does anyone know? Thanks guys!

I really like the burgundy! I cannot help you out with the pads, I did not even know that you could customize poly pads!

I'm going to put my vote in for raspberry/blue
And I would like to second the question of where to find custom poly pads... I've always wondered about this too.

It looks like the Polypad website now has an online store, where they offer 13 pad colors and 17 trims. Here is the link:

I vote raspberry. Navy and kelly, while a lovely combo is very common, and I avoid being common like the cold.:winkgrin:

Ooh that new polypad website is awesome! I had only seen the old one. I wish they had color swatches though so you could see what they look like. (Unless I'm missing that page?)
