Sailing Helmet- which brand / model ?  Bottom

  • Hi
    Anyone have experience with either the Forward WIP Sailing Helmet 2.0 or the Zhik H1 Helmet?
    The Forward is avail in one size (M/L) while the Zhik comes in three sizes (S,M,L)

  • Not sure of the brand but i find this handles all my needs

    JK - a helmet on a cat is a very good idea - esp with a boom

    i have hit my head a few times but never too hard
    i have seen a very experienced sailor almost remove his head from his neck in a gybe - but he kind deserved it (he was drunk and belligerent while sailing my brand new 5.5 in heavy air - right Headhunter? ;)

  • The Zhik has more adjustability. It comes with multiple pads to adjust the internal fit and a rotary adjustable head belt, similar to what you find in a construction helmet.


    disclaimer - I work for Zhik...
  • Gath helmets from Murray's Marine in California are great, but hard to keep in stock because the Coast Guard and military buy out the supply at times.
