Full face helmet for wingsuit?

Recommended Posts

Are Full face helmets ok for Wingsuit flying?

Im at 2 jumps so far....but i want to buy my own helmet...and want a full face for the added protection...i plan to do wingsuit once i have the necessary experience....

i would imagine its not a bad idea especially for flocks

I wear my Z1 full face helmet for wingsuit, tracking, RW and raft jumps because it's quieter than my open face and if I get kicked in the face, it's a little more protection...crazy rationale perhaps, but that's my reasoning.

Is your Full face not quieter and offering more protection than an open face on all types of jumps (rather than just the types you mentioned)?

Crazy or not, I still haven't figured out what your rational is ;)



Good point. When under canopy up high, or when I'm head up or head down open face is my preference, but with the other disciplines which have me on my belly, I prefer full face.

bumping this thread................

so im pretty set on a full face for wingsuit flying, but my question is for all those with altimeters mounted on their mudflaps.....
have you had any problems clearly seeing your mud-flap mounted altimiters, or is the peripheral vision good?

what kind of full face do you have?
cheers

I wear a BoneHead Mamba when I wear a full face. I have no problem seeing my mudflap alti. The Cookie G3 and SQ1 Phantom have a much thinner chin and wide visor so even less concern with sight lines.
50 donations so far. Give it a try.

You know you want to spank it
