This helmet is a perfect fit for my head.
Umacheerrox
The strap is typical nylon type material, but the chin and ear portions are covered in bonded leather and are very soft.

This helmet is very light weight and comfortable.

I have been a Troxel helmet aficionado and planned to replace my 5 year old helmet with a new Intrepid or Liberty, which are styled very much like the Tipperary Sportage; however I contacted Troxel and the said those models wouldn't be available until mid-June [never mind that they are already listed with major retailers]. I needed a new one now though so I thought I'd pick up a Tipperary after all the raves reviews here & elsewhere and if I didn't like it, I could keep it as a backup and still get a new Troxel. Well, I *REALLY* like it. I have had several Medium Troxel Legacy Gold Duratecs and always been happy with them until the last one - the harness system just never was to my liking, although it worked OK. I was constantly fiddling with it and in a strong breeze sometimes the helmet felt too big. Well, now I think maybe it was too big. My head size is 21.5" = 6 7/8 hat size and the Troxel Medium is for hat sizes 7-7 1/4. I decided to buy the Tipperary according to my head measurement, not the size corresponding to the Troxel Medium [which would have been Tipperary Large]. 21.5" is at the upper end of the Tipperary Medium so I hoped it would be OK. I put it on straight out of the box and it was too tight, so I replaced the thick back pad that was installed with the thin back pad that was included. Perfect fit! And I really like the way the harness stays where it's put [I had to position the Troxel harness in place before every time I wore it. Note - Troxel harness may be different now as my old one was a 2007 model.] It is more snug on the side of the head too, and more well-vented than my old helmet so I am hoping it keeps me cooler in the TX summer. The only other adjustment I made was to tighten the chin strap. I did remove the keeper as I am not used to that bulk under my chin. The helmet feels secure and comfortable - so far so good!

Sizing (from the accompanied booklet-- just to save you time):
XS, Head Circumference: 19.5- 19 7/8 in. or 50- 51 cm.
S, Head Circumference: 20 1/4- 20 3/4 in. or 52-53 cm.
M, Head Circumference: 21 1/8- 21 1/2 in. or 54-55 cm.
L, Head Circumference: 21 7/8- 22 1/4 in. or 56- 57 cm.
XL, Head Circumference: 22 5/8-23 7/8 in. or 58-61 cm.

The sticker inside gives a manufactured date. This is super important when it comes to the safety and life of the helmet. My helmet is only 4 months old. It is SEI certified... but it is made in China. Yet, this might be some of China's best work. Had me fooled completely with the quality. I am not sure if any of the other helmets out there are American made. But now you know.

Structure- SOLID. There is zero exposed foam on the outside. There is no electrical tape type hem because everything is covered in some kind of hefty suede material below the shell. I think this should ensure longevity of the product against UV. The padding on the inside of the helmet (the top and the base of the skull) is removable for replacement or cleaning.... brow padding and padding around the crown is built in with the shell. Very thick (about an inch). The strap is typical nylon type material, but the chin and ear portions are covered in bonded leather and are very soft. Oh, and VERY well ventilated! It is pretty darn light for the sturdy construction. Comes with a helmet bag and some extra pads.

Also, it comes with a nice instruction booklet and some warranty (6 month limited). And it has a accident replacement program for up to ONE year with a small fee+ S&H from the purchase date. You have 30 days from the date of purchase to register your product if you want to be in the program. So, don't forget to register.

I absolutely love my Tipperary! It's the only helmet I've found that doesn't give me a headache when I ride. It's one of the safest and most comfortable helmets out there.

..My old Tipperary helmet saved my life. You see I had a really bad fall where I ended up underneath the horse. She stepped on my left leg and eye. But she also either grazed my helmet or stepped on it I can't remember. But all I can think of my helmet saved my life granted my eye was injured but that's better than what could have happened.

I am so thrilled with this helmet. Soon I'll be riding in 100 degree weather and this will keep me cooler better than any other helmet available. I forget that I'm wearing it - no pressure points at all. Love the price. I would have paid more than twice as much if I needed to in order to find a comfortable helmet that would allow my head to breaths in hot weather. Fortunately I didn't have to!

This helmet is a perfect fit for my head. I've been borrowing a Tipperary helmet while I work with some horses that need a lot of work. This past Saturday I was thrown from a horse I'm working with and hit my head while wearing this helmet and just walked away with a slight headache and a sore body. I recently ordered a troxel spirit and received it yesterday. I tried it on and it fit fine front to back but was not snug on the sides. After my recent fall I don't think I want any extra room in my helmet. I sent it back and spent the extra money on the Tipperary.

Last week, this helmet saved my life. I would not be here typing this if I had not put on my Tipperary helmet last Friday morning. With one foot in the stirrup, my horse exploded out from under me. My head hit hard on the ground. My Tipperary helmet was cracked - inside and out - but I only have a mild concussion. It's not everyday that a product literally saves your life.
