    Best cricket helmet

    Hi there,

    I'm in the market for a new helmet. I don't really know too much about which the best helmets are, and I'm looking for some guidance! I don't really want to spend over 50, but if the difference in quality between the 1st class helmet and the 2nd is so great, then I would get the 1st class one.

    So, overall, which helmet would you say provides the best quality, taking into account cost.

    Thanks.

    I think the difference would have to be in comfort/ fit rather than safety. I would imagine no helmet would pass muster if it didn't meet pretty rigorous safety standards.

    I'd just try a few on and get the one that's most comfortable to you.

    I thought the Masuri titanium grille was the lightest at just under 500 grams. Is that correct or is their another one lighter than that available ?

    I use a Masuri. It is really light and I don't notice it. A good helmet is worth spending $ on. You can afford to skimp on the gloves/pads.
