A few weeks ago I was pondering the idea of buying a new skull cap, but at a loss as to what to buy. This is one of the many times where being a blogger and wondering things aloud paid off – a Charles Owen rep was reading and came to my aid, suggesting I try the Pro II. One pretty helmet purchase later (bonus points for navy), I have a new skull cap.
It fits way better than the other one and is much more stable on my head. For a skull cap it’s not too terribly bulbous, and it’s pretty lightweight and comfortable. Love the harness too. Even all of the padding and harness is navy! Little things like that make me happy. Fellow oval headed eventers – I definitely recommend trying the Pro II.
The next step is ordering a fancy custom cover from Sipp Silks. I think I’ve decided on a simple two center stripe design in navy and yellow but I’m still mulling it over a bit. So many options. Like for real…
As far as the Samshield goes, I have to update here and say that I’ve been even more pleased with it now that we’ve had some gross and hot weather. The airflow with the Premium liner in it is better than my old Speed Air, which I was not expecting, and I love being able to pull the liner out and wash it. Very happy with my helmet collection now!
Also – thanks to everyone who commented on yesterday’s post and shared their stories. I wasn’t expecting such a reaction but I absolutely loved reading what everyone had to say.
