Made ready for high intensity water activities, the Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet has the protection and durability you need in a water helmet. Built from impact-resistant, quality ABS plastic, this multi-functional head protection has the ability to be used with or without a visor as well as with or without ear protectors making it one of the most versatile water helmets available. Having met all of the requirements for field of vision, extent of coverage, shock absorbing capacity, retention system performance, buoyancy and durability, the Gedi is trusted by the Coast Guard, Water Police, Sea Rescue and more.

The Gedi Helmet was developed to be completely convertible, 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. Offering adaptability and safety, the Gedi Convertible is a premium choice for any rescue personnel or water sports fanatic wanting to avoid the risk of injury.

*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.

**Orange size XXL is always a special order item.

Product Features

  • 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.
  • Peak Visor - UV-stable, shatterproof, flexible, quality nylon plastic visor offers sun and impact protection when in use or can be easily removed.
  • Wear It and Forget It Comfort - Flexible fitting ear protectors adjust to you! Ear protectors are removable to accommodate warm temperature or your style. Four-point attachment keeps Gath secure with or without ear protectors.
  • 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.
  • Comfortable Fit System - 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 Gedi weighs 360-420 grams, depending on size and accessories being used.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Don’t use this surfing!Review by Frederick Frederick
Contrary to my prior review...Ouch!!! I fell from the top of a head-high wave to the bottom last week and had a scary strain on my neck punching through the surface. (Thought "uh-oh" did I just break my neck out in big surf?!!" the neck strain was that big. Yikes, used some luck on that one!)

Just got the Surf Convertible model tonight and side by side see it is much smaller exterior for the same size interior (padding is thinner). No hard plastic over where I got my stitches, but I have to switch to the slimmer model because of that danger in punching through the surface with a bigger effective head while wearing a helmet.

Quality of both models is impressive.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Love surfing with itReview by Frederick Frederick
40 stitches on my forehead 8 weeks ago, hitting the bottom despite my arm wrapped around my head (most impact was on my shoulder then).
Super loved surfing with this the first time today, a 2.4 hour sunset session! My first wearing a helmet surfing.
The XL SFC was bit too small for my skull, and XL Gedi I needed to use the thicker comfort strip - Cleanline size chart is better than Gath’s.
Love how well the visor works on the Gedi!

I surfed alone the last hour before dark, and it seemed great to have a helmet after what I’ve read about surfing injury stats, (I’ve an 85V shark deterrent from AU too). While 100g heavier than the SFC, the Gedi seemed plenty light, and it’s visor worked way better. I used the extra comfort strip to plug the vent holes, cuz it was brrr cold at Trestles today.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Great helmet; ear pieces a bit fragile....Review by Fred Frequent Kayaker Fred Frequent Kayaker
Love the helmet. I have a very large head and was able to configure the XXXL to fit nicely. I've used the helmet several times in conditions and happily report it doesn't scoop water or otherwise bucket. And the visor slides back in a big wave, which makes rolling a kayak easier.
My only gripe is that the ear pieces attach only with a small piece of velcro between the shell and the inner lining. This probably wouldn't be enough to keep them in place even with the ear straps over them for what I do. Also, one of the pieces of velcro fell off an ear piece before I'd even used it....ach. A little thing, but telling.

On the whole, the helmet is otherwise well made, easy to adjust and stylin'. And Cleanline was a breeze to deal with.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Totally worth itReview by T.M. T.M.
Quality helmet with good fit. Tried half a dozen cheaper helmets before finally ordering the 3XL Gath. Fits perfectly and the carbon color looks nice. Visor and sun shade are great for kiteboarding.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Almost perfectReview by DaBA DaBA
Almost great, fits well, stays in place, the visor is nice but you can also move it up so its out of your field of vision which helps while paddling out on a surfboard. My only complaint is that the ear covers don't connect well with the helmet, seems flimsy, they're always migrating loose, and I have a feeling I'm going to lose one of them some day. Would be 5 stars if the ear covers clicked in place better.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Great Helmet!Review by Amanda Amanda
This helmet is great! It fits well---no headache after use--- and covers most of my head so I feel comfortable and protected in this helmet. The awesome customer support and fast shipping was a bonus, too!

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Finally got a helmet to fit my headReview by wahl-e wahl-e
Tried a couple different helmets over the past year, but both gave me a headache after an hour or so - they were too short - from front to back - to fit my head. The Gath fits perfectly. (I did have to cut a small amount of foam out at the temple to clear my sunglasses, but I've had to do that on other helmets as well.)

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet A bodyboarder/photogs dream. Review by mushie pea mushie pea
Have been wearing this helmet, gopro attached and not, for a month now in the shorebreak at Windansea in San Diego. The weight is just right and offers sun protection as well as brain. Cleanline worked with me until my misshapen head could be fit. While I feel somewhat like an egg over easy in whitewater (matt yellow) I feel my yolk is secure, ha.

Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Fine helmet for kiteboardingReview by kiteleroy kiteleroy
After taking the usual number of kiteboarding crashes (and having worn helmets for skiing, snowboarding and biking) I decided to get a watersport brain bucket. However, with the exception of the Gath, other products fit, well, like a bucket. I was able to try a friend's Gath and determined that the Large was the right size. Granted the Gath is pricey, but for the comfortable fit and protection, I believe it's a value. The visor is a nice touch as it does provide some protection from the sun.
