A true fighter.
That week-long kayaking festival may leave you pretty haggard, but you'll better your odds to be in much better shape thanks to the Shred Ready Super Scrappy Kayak Helmet. At certain times during the week, you may need head protection more than others (like when you abandon your play boat for a canoe run over the falls), but who cares—after all, the visor design looks great and keeps the summer sun out of your eyes.
A tough ABS shell teams up with VN foam to offer whitewater-certified protection. Between the HOG 3.0 Boa lock and the color-coded, interchangeable fitting pad, locking in the perfect fit is easy. Not to mention, you can rock the Super Scrappy forwards or backwards, depending on what style you're feeling that day. Plus, this reliable helmet is easy on the pocketbook, so you have plenty of cash left over for post-paddling brews.

- Q & A
Superb for the price
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This seems like a great little helmet. My head is a pretty typical intermediate oval shape and 23 in around exactly. The helmet fit with the large pads in, but just barely. If you are over 23 in, you will either have to remove one of the comfort fit pads or find another lid. Also, the shape is slightly rounded for my head, leaving space at the sides and tight front-to-back, but overall it was secure and had little movement when in place. The rear adjustment band is top notch.
Additionally, be aware that this is probably for more moderate waters. The shell does not adequately cover the lower back of the skull and only partially covers the temples. Front coverage is adequate.
Again, a great product for the price, fit is great (depending on your head shape) and I likely won't need a different helmet until I run waters that necessitate fuller coverage.
