The Guardian Cap is the leading soft shell helmet cover engineered for impact reduction. It brings a padded, soft-shell layer to the outside of the decades old hard-shell helmet and reduces impact up to 33%. Perfect for interior position groups.

*Helmet and visor are not included.

Product Details

The NFL Model has an additional layer of padding (green interior) to accommodate NFL speeds; this adds a few extra ounces that we do not recommend for youth/high school players.


- Reduces impact on an average of 10-20% at NFL speeds
- Augments existing helmets to make them pliable and able to more effectively manage energy, addressing the impact severity of blows.
- Pads blows to knees, hands, abdomen, etc. during Inside Run and position drills.
- Reduces sound and vibrational frequencies.
- Reduces radiant heat up to 20°
- Preserves helmets & decals for gameday.

In 2022, the NFL began mandating Guardian Caps for all 32 NFL teams through the first preseason game for all OL, DL, TEs, and LBs. The result? The Caps "exceeded expectations."

Guardian Caps are worn by 300,000+ athletes nationwide to reduce impact during practice.

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.
