Protect your head with the Gath Sport Hat Helmet when you are going full speed in the water. This impact-resistant, quality ABS plastic helmet is a must have for water-sports enthusiasts who want safety without bulk or weight. This helmet is versatile, durable and is adjustable for water or weather conditions. Even sky divers appreciate the low volume, aerodynamic shape and the altimeter bracket option. Resistant to dislodging or displacement due to bucketing, rocks or snags even after the second or third "hit" or "bump", this is a helmet that will keep you safe time and time again.The Sport Hat was developed to be easily adjustable, to be light weight and low profile, and to provide maximum coverage that will STAY PUT. Made using non-stretch, standards-approved webbing and standards-approved quick-release buckles for a secure retention and fitted with a neoprene anti-rash sleeve for added comfort. All Gath helmet custom-built screws and rivets are made from strong non-corrosive, saltwater-resistant materials making these helmets low maintenance and easy-to-clean. Featuring foam forehead protection, adjustable audio vents, and fine tuning fit options, the Sport Hat will be long favored for its simplicity, low volume, excellent head and ear coverage.
- Impact Resistant Construction - Made strong, durable, and rust proof, the UV-stable, quality ABS plastic will withstand harsh climate conditions and temperature extremes. Multi-impact EVA closed cell foam liner with closed-cell EVA foam comfort strips.
- Added Forehead Protection - Molded high-density foam padding adds protective insulation from bumps, helps hold helmet in proper position, and adds sizing element for optimal fit.
- Neck Protection - The low volume, lightweight, rounded shell shape helps protect from the effects of "bucketing" water or from "snagging" the reef, a leash, or your board.
- More Secure, Suction Cup Fit - Molded, closed-cell liner and peel-and-stick comfort fit strips allow you to achieve real comfort, security and proper fitting of head shape.
- Wear It and Forget It Comfort - The comfort strip fitting system is very versatile. Be creative with different padding combinations and configurations to customize the fit to your head shape. Some customers even lift the internal liner flaps and put segments of comfort strips underneath, using the self-adhesive back to stick them to the shell.
- Lightweight Protection - The Sport Hat weighs 325-350 grams, depending on size.
*Please note that neither the included peak visor, nor any optional visor, should be worn for skydiving, as the visors were not designed for the extreme speeds involved in skydiving.
- Gath Sport Hat Helmet Why not? Review by Doit Doit
RatingHardly notice the helmet when I'm in the water, fits over my wetsuit hood once I pulled out the extra padding inside. Without a hood, just add the padding again. I've been hit in my head by my board before, now I'm ready for when it happens again!(Posted on 4/17/2017) 2017-04-17
- Gath Sport Hat Helmet Brain bucket goodnessReview by butnut butnut
RatingDecided to get this helmet after I hit the reef hard with my noggin. Yeah, day late and a dollar short, lol. Tore half my scalp off, 28 staples, arrived at the OR in critical due to massive blood loss. Lucky I didn't break my neck or crack my skull. Also lucky to have great health insurance coverage, got my bill...$38,500.00. I pay a small percentage of that. Looking at the construction of the Gath, the sturdy shell and semi-rigid lining/padding... this would have saved me a trip to the hospital....at least in this accident. I've surfed this break over 40 years, know it well, and got banged up a few times, enough to get a few stitches over the decades, but this was a doozie, and just a freak accident. Shit happens, so I'll be prepared...just in case. Don't have to hit me over the head twice...won't leave home without it now. Perfect, secure fit BTW, light too! Stay safe and go surf...aloha(Posted on 7/27/2016) 2016-07-27
