Hi

I wore a Cascade helmet, full faced with mask, back in New England for shallow runs. Worked great! And comfortable. It's sized rather large. Eg, normally I am a size Small so I needed a XXS and that was still a bit big!

Here's info on it: http://www.cascadelacrosse.com/sporthelmets/water.htm

And Outdoor Play carries it:

I also bought a ice hockey helmet once but I never trusted it...I think I just felt more safe wearing a kayak helmet... but that's me!

Enjoy,
Annie

I would never wear my hockey helmet on the water. Get a kayak helmet.

Same for me!

I managed to acquire six stitches from a rock in Number 3 of the numbers. I will have to post a pic of my blood soaked nogging. Definitely not very fun.

a good friend of mine's brother rolled in rocky falls on the poudre, the little drop by ansel watrous, at low water a couple of weeks ago and got thirty stictches in his face. The drop isn't tough but if you happen to get rolled no amount of tucking is going to save you. After hearign about that I have given a lot of thought to face protection.

Cascade Helmet

I love my Cascade helmet with face guard. I'm sure it's not "cool," but it provides great protection and it wasn't to expensive either.

You can go to a sporting goods store and get a metal hocky cage mask to bolt onto you kayak helmet. That's what I did. Most people just use the "Face Saver" which has less metal bars but probably would stop most rocks. Some Kayak stores are carrying those.
