    Default Helmets that fit like JR8?

    The JR8 seems to fit me well. Had a textium that fit at first and is now too big, not sure how that happened.

    Would like another helmet just to show in.
    Oh my god - she's gone and got the eventing bug! I will send you some antibiotics! Take the entire bottle and do two hunter shows and it will pass!

    Well the Chares Owen GR8 is the adult version of the JR8, have you tried that in the same size? It's pricier than the JR8, but less than the GPA Titium if that's the other helmet you're refering to..I've never heard of the textium.

    IRH makes a CO GR8 knockoff, it looks and fits like the CO version.

    Why not just get another JR8?

    I fit the GR8/JR8 well, so here are some others that fit me:

    CO Hampton
    Tipperary (either first or third generation Sportage, and I currently have the T2)
    Ovation
    Some IRH (like the CO knockoffs)

    I do not fit:
    GPA
    Samshield
    One K

    Hopefully that will give you a place to start.
    I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

    Only comes in two colors. Just looking at options.
