BH/ParaGear Echo Helmet

Recommended Posts

what info are you after? it's a no-frills, made for students/novices helmet. I've had a couple on my head, they fit nicely, and look fine.
If it looks good, that's all that matters.
Think: "Step up from Protec" and "step down from Mindwarp."

I'm assuming you mean in appearance, because it's probably not in ability to absorb impacts.

There is nothing more dangerous than breaking a basic safety rule and getting away with it. It removes fear of the consequences and builds false confidence. (tbrown)

I should have been more clear. I meant the "if it looks good..." as a smart-ass comment. Everyone knows that if it looks good, then skydivers want one.

Pro-tec is still the best buy for $$ and protection.

You can also make them look pretty good with the right paint job. Heres mine..

I know it is made from fiberglass instead of carbon fiber or kevlar. Fiberglass has advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage of fiberglass is that it absorbs impacts better than plastic, carbon fiber or Kevlar. The main disadvantage is that fiberglass helmets have a shorter lifespan. They should be replaced every 5 years or if they have a major impact. I have been looking at them too.
