    Default IRH Elite EQ vs Xtreme Helmet

    What's the difference between the two, and which would be better for hunters?

    They look to be the same model, but the Elite EQ has the microsuede, while the Xtreme is more like the GPA material. Both are perfectly fine for hunters, but I personally prefer the Elite EQ, but it is really up to you!

    There's a $30 price difference, but otherwise the Xtreme is a smooth plastic finish but the Elite Eq is the micro suede covering. I have the Xtreme and love it, but it's just a schooling helmet.

    I have the Xtreme, and other than the finish on the helmet, the harness is leather vs nylon I believe. I love my helmet and get a ton of compliments on it! I prefer the plastic cover to microsuede - so much easier to keep clean and looking good. I was warned that the black helmet scuffs easily, but I have the grey version and am very happy with how it's maintained its good looks.
