helmets

was wondering if anyone could recommend a kevlar helmet or something other than pro tec material that covers the ears and a face mask can be attached to.

also, any elbow pad recommendations would also be appreciated.
thanks,
Matt

- take a look at the Cascade helmet... it is not kevlar... but it is pretty beefy and you can put a mask on it.

- fox elbow pads... you can get them at dirt bike shops

try bombergear elbo pads... they are really comfy, good coverage and most importantly, they don't get in the way!

If you want a helmet that is very protective has removeable facemask options, is plastic, and ugly as all get out, and worn by old men, go for the cascade. (No need to flame me for these comments here readers, its just my opinion on these helmets.... it doesn't make it so. One man's mud is another's gold, or something like that).
There are lots of good looking helmets out there in kevlar that get the job done. Granted, protection is the most important feature in a helmet, but its quite possible to find a cool look you like as well.
My top reccomendation would be FNA headgear out of BC. They make 2 full face carbon/kevlar helmets that have total coverage, as well as a handfull of sweet non-facemask car/kev helmets. The one thing on the full-faces' is that the facemask is not removable. Its carb/kev and is part of the helmet (one pice) but its probably about the most protective kayak specific helmet on the market (if you believe facemasks are the way to go.)

For more info and pictures email FNA's owner/builder Faron. He make's em custom for ya, and will email you pics and info. They are relatively affordable as well and extremely durable and quality.

I got a Gratefull Heads Hard Hit this year. Looks cool, and protects well. You can instal a face mask, I didn't but I did put a Salamander sun visor on it. Before I always had the cheapo black plastic helmet with all the drain holes in it, I never realized how warm a helmet would be without those stupid holes all over the place!

Nice one dude!!! Your cool.

Im guessing that Metro sexual means from the Denver Metro area? (seriously, i dont know though....nor what connection it would have to anything. It would be nice to fill me in on that if your calling me names on a public forum for oferring an opinion).

If thats what it means though, sorry to dissapoint. Gunny, CB and Salida.
