    The Predator Hardnose comes in one size only, so says the website link on Boatwerks. Will it fit a Xlarge head (very brainy). Has anyone tried this helmet and what do you think? Seems like a steal at 59$. I think it’s 59$ on the Boatwerks site. Any other helmets recomended for a soon to be "very beginner creeker".

    Paul, If you are looking for facial protection, look at a Cascade with the chin bar or the face mask. They are a bit more expensive than the Predator , but offer superior protection, IMHO.

    TGG!

    That hardnose bit on the Predator website is the cost on ONLY the metal nose/chin bar. That’s why it;s only one size – they only manufacture the one size of metal face protector. That’s why the image next to the "Hardnose" attachment shows the hardnose attachment clearly, but fades out the helmet it’s mounted to.

    You’d also have to make a separate purchase f a helmet to mount it on, or verify that it could be mounted on whatever helmet you currently own so that it ensures adequate protection and does not diminish the structural integrity of your existing helmet. (ie drilling holes).

    Hi Gonzo,

    Do you have any idea of the cost of the cascade full face helmet? I wonder if Boatwerks carries them or can special order, Jeff Strano?

    Hi Paul,

    $66 for the helmet, and $31 for the chin bar at MEC…

    Paul,

    I don’t know if Jeff carries the Cascades or if he can do a special order on them, you will have to ask him.
    If MEC does’t have it, you can also mail order one through Hardheadedsports directly from the States:
    http://www.hardheadedsports.com/cascade … d-bar.html
    http://www.hardheadedsports.com/casfulearcov1.html

    Shipping will be ~US$10, and taxes and fees are about CAN$20, therefore if you order it in the US the total price will be about CAN$100.

    Cheers!

    TGG!
