I just bought my second JR8 after a fall off my horse. I had the last one for just over 4 years and it definitely did what it was supposed to when my head bounced off the ground during the fall. I think its comfortable and fits great. I don't have a problem keepin my hair in it with or without a hairnet. The only time it didn't fit properly was when I cut all my hair off and didn't have enough hair. Its easy to clean and has a nice look to it for showing. I used to have a IRH with the airvent and I haven't noticed a difference between how hot my head got in that one versus how hot it gets in my JR8. I wish I could afford the GR8, but the JR8 fits my budget and does its job well. I don't think I'll ever own anything but the Charles Owens ever again!
I think this helmet is good for children or people just starting out. There is no ventilation but its comfy & stylish!
Smart, classy helmet
Great CO quality without the hefty price tag. Fits my head perfectly and is very comfortable. I personally find the harness to be less bulky and more attractive than that of the GR8. So glad I bought it!
Good helmet; Good price
This helmet has been a lifesaver for my wallet. It looks just like the GR8 to a judge and saves a good amount of money. Mine has been extremely comfortable.
I had this helmet before I bought the GR8. This helmet is very comfortable, conservative and looks great in the show ring. The biggest difference between the JR8 and the GR8 is the harness, but it all looks the same to a judge, so this is a great schooling or show helmet for anyone on a budget!
nice helmet for the price. give syou a very refunded look without the cost. It's just super hot and hard t put your hair up in when you horse show.
Great schooling helmet
I bought this helmet as something to school in so I could save my GR8 for the shows. I think the fit was very similar to the GR8 and it is basically the same helmet except this one has a nylon harness. I think this is fine for schooling and smaller shows, but if you are going to do the rated shows, you should splurge on the GR8 or AYR8. Overall a good schooling hemet that has held up after many drops and falls.
Great helmet for schooling or low level shows!
This is a great, well made helmet for the price. I love how it looks just like the GR8 at a way cheaper price. The padding is very comfortable and the profile of the helmet is very flattering. My only dislikes is how cheap the harness looks in comparison to the rest of the helmet and how hot this helmet can be because of the lack of ventilation. Overall however a great helmet!
