Why We Love This

The J3 Helmet is a favorite of the cross country rider!  The unsurpassed design and function of the J3 makes it Charles Owen's most popular jockey skull cap.  Four ventilation holes offer breathability while the cushion comfort harness provides padding at the base of the skull for a secure and comfortable fit. Low profile for a sleeker look and multiple vents keep you cooler so you can focus on the jump ahead of you!

Made in UK.

    Charles Owen J3 Helmet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This helmet fits great and gives me confidence on my off the track TB! I am replacing same helmet worn over seven years
    Date published: 2017-06-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and the price was right I was unsure about buying a helmet online without trying it on for fit. I trusted the measuring tape and got a better helmet and better fit than my old helmet. I won't be pushing this one out of my eyes while I'm on cross country. I'm glad I could get a great helmet without driving 3. Hours to the tack shop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet, safe and stylish I received it as a Christmas present, I have always wanted one- love it!
    Date published: 2017-01-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second one. I loved the first one. If you want to look classy for the hunt field or something, you just buy a velvet cover. Fits nice and snug and feels as if it covers the base of my skull too--doesn't just "perch" like some helmets I've tried.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits really well I initially bought the Charles Owen Pro II helmet but wasn't happy with the fit. Sent it back to Smartpak and exchanged for the J3. was a bit sceptical about purchasing a helmet on line but customer service excellent and this helmet fits really well. It's not coming off!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 years later I bought the same thing I bought this helmet 6 years ago from another distributor. I took a bad fall recently (and it was time to replace...) and I did my due diligence among other Charles Owen models and some other top brands. I really wanted to change it up, but this was the best fit, price, and features all in one. So good I went for round two!
    Date published: 2014-10-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! This is my second J3 - this model is by far the most comfortable helmet around! I seem to be in between sizes (67/8 and 7) in Charles Owens helmets; my last J3 was a 7 but after the padding broke in the helmet would wobble a bit when landing off of big jumps. I opted for a 6 7/8 this time and it seemed a little snug at first but after wearing it, I think it will be fine (no headaches or anything after I take it off).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just not for me! I really wanted to love this product. I purchased it on Helmet Awareness Day and got it for a great price. When it arrived, it just wasn't for me. The fit is WAY too small, it was actually painful. I can't attest to whether it fits better over time but even had I decided I liked the style, I would have had to order up for size. I didn't like how the material on the helmet was scratchy, and the helmet cover appeared cheaper in person than in pictures. On my head, it looked MASSIVE. That may just be skull caps being skull caps (I've never had one) but it just wasn't something I could see myself wearing. I realize I will probably have to purchase a similar product for eventing eventually....but until I'm forced to cross that bridge I will be on the hunt for something way more lower profile. I will give it this in it's defense....it did look SUPER safe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove! Fantastic! I tried on a friend's Charles Owen to get an idea of fit, fell in love, and bought my own.  I felt comfortable enough with SmartPak's return policy to take the plunge, and have been overwhelmingly pleased with the product.  I wear mine quite snug and have never had such a comfortable helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this helmet I've worn this helmet every day for 3 years (bought from another company but so great it deserves a review here too). LOVE how comfortable it is, especially the chin strap. Very popular with all the event riders at my barn for XC and everyday use. Just a heads up that I bought it quite snug but after wearing it every day the padding starts to break down and it is now just a touch loose. Will definitely buy this helmet again and have recommended it to others.
