Gath Helmet


Bedford

Recommended Posts

I assume you're hoping that the Fifth Element headgear will somehow prevent you from driving your ass up through your nose if the halyard breaks and you land on a winch?

It's more for protection from slamming into the rig in the rough stuff. Last year we beat for four days into 35kts from Cabo to San Diego. That's really what I got it for.

I have been on a few deliveries where I wished I had one of these. I would prefer it to goggles. You may get laughed at to begin with but after a couple of hours on the helm in upwind shitty conditions, they will be begging to borrow it. Get the clear visor for night work and buy sunglasses that fit under it during the day time.

 

By the way, what sunglasses are best for sailing??

i use this helmet while beach-cat sailing in big breeze and cold water. It's fantastic to get the spray out of your eyes and protects your ears against windchill. don't give a damn on unqualified cheeting. GO for it !

cheers from germany
