A Must Have!
Review by: horwichg, 2008-07-14
I have been jumping this helmet exclusively this season. It is the most comfortable helmet I've ever put on. It's very lightweight, and incredibly comfortable. After takeoff, unless it's very warm in the plane, or I'm having a conversation, I usually just leave it on my head.
Even with the comfort, it still fits very snug. I've made a 2-way RW jump from 12.5k with the chin strap undone, and it didn't go anywhere (although I wouldn't recommend this to anyone).
The M1 cuts out most of the wind noise, which I find to be great when trying new things, or doing something that needs a lot of concentration.
The internal audible pocket does a great job of holding my Neptune, with a fabric pouch which is mounted under the liner. It is very simple to remove the instrument. I have no trouble hearing the Neptune on it's Normal volume setting.
On numerous occasions I've been bumped on exit, or while moving around in the plane, smashing my head into all different parts of the plane. The helmet has stood up to the abuse, on showing one scratch, and one scuff.
I would highly recommend this helmet to anyone.

The Cookie M1 is lightweight and comfortable, great for both tunnel flying and skydiving. The only ad thing is the length of the chin-strap. The side where it connects is too long for me so it has to be taped up, but only a tiny adjustment, it's still a great helmet!

In short, this is the sort of helmet you forget that you're wearing. It's lightweight carbon fibre, low profile and really well made. The padding is great and extends the length of the chinstrap.
To top it off, the customer service is awesome and Cookie replied to my emails the same day.
Normally if I was doing a wingsuit jump or a hop n pop I'd go without a helmet, just because it was easier/more comfortable than wearing my camera helmet but I don't think twice about running my M1.
Note - the picture on this site is the old style, Cookie's now making them with a lower profile, sqaure audible recess

Nice helmet, has a very nice fit, love the liner as it is soft and fits snugly, I like the pocket for the audible's, they fit well and i can hear it fine on loud setting thru the padding. I like the fact the helmet is light. The helmet has a great profile and really is low profile. you can't go wrong with it. I love the look of my cookie!!!
Way better than any other helmet I've tried!!!

I tried on both the Guner and the Mindwarp (by Bonehead) and was dissappointed. They didn't fit well, and the guner looked especially bulky, and goofy! When I was about to admit defeat on finding a helmet I liked, I tried on my Cookie!! I love this helmet! It is super comfortable, sleek, and quiet! It holds two audibles, but doesn't stick out on both sides (just on the one side a little bit). Not to mention it can be used as a camera helmet down the line!
Cookie's M1 is a fantastic helmet!

After flying my Mxv for a year I purchased an M1 for the occasional fun jump. I'm convinced that this is without a doubt, the most comfortable helmet on the market today. I can also tell you that I got better treatment during my purchases from a couple of guys 1/2 way around the globe than I've gotten from some local stores I deal with on a regular basis!
The Best purchuse you can ever make.
