Happy about recent purchase

The cap was very easy to fit onto our son's football helmet. He does not find it cumbersome to wear - in fact he says it is so lightweight you forget you're wearing it! He has only had it one week, but so far, all good things to say!

My son loves it!

He had requested one, and the fact that he was concerned about preventing concussions was all the reason we needed to get the order placed.

Warning

No helmet, practice apparatus, or helmet pad can prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports. Researchers have not reached an agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions. No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests.
