UM = University of Montana. I don't know that it would be specifically necessary to get the EXACT same brand the team was wearing.
They were out paddle rafting and only one of them had ever been on the Lochsa. I assume they just ran the helmets they already owned instead of running out to buy ww-specific helmets. They were having a blast--wearing their practice jerseys and looked good doing it.
(takes a lot for me to admit that, being a MSU alum!)
They have a FB page if you want to get in touch with them, but I'd assume you could find a closer LAX club/team to talk to and fondle their helmets.

VERY good advice.
Maybe treat the hardware regularly with 303 (or the metal-specific equivalent--BoeShield T9) and watch for rust.
