Fitting Guide - Hockey Helmets

Fitting Guide - Hockey Helmets

Due to the increase in the number of recorded concussions, there has been a heavy focus placed on head protection.  Although a concussion proof helmet does not exist, a properly fitted helmet does decrease the chances of a head injury.

The helmet should feel moderately snug and rest at about a centimeter above the eyebrows. The helmet should loosely lock on the back of the head and hug the sides of the face. When the player moves their head,  the helmet should not sway or obstruct vision. Adjustments can usually be made to the helmet to further custom fit a player’s head. It is crucial that the helmet  stay in place during game play. Helmets that fall off or fit too loosely risk the player’s performance and more importantly, their life. In general, higher price point helmets tend to offer better protection. This is a result of using upgraded foams and a more custom fit with new 360 degree fitting interiors.

Please refer to this fitting graph to find your proper helmet size.
