Re: [FFAddict] Protective Helmets

In reply to:
Paragliding helmets are another good place to look. They are designed to be snag-free and fairly aerodynamic. They have pockets for in-air communication systems [audible would probably fit] and they actually have solid protection. They aren't DOT approved, but they'll still help. The Charly Insider is one of the more significantly padded helmets.
In reply to:

Does anybody actually jump any of the charly (or similar) helmets? They look great

Yes here's that link again:

But I've tried this and the one I jumped definitely has issues that I've mentioned already, these look a bit better but I don't trust that it's fully resolved. The issues not insurmountable though.
