Why We Love This

The Samshield Shadowmatt Helmet is a mix between the rider's needs, the designer's creative energy, and the engineer's technical vision. This helmet has a polycarbonate outer shell that’s durable, lightweight, and treated with an anti-scratch matte finish that looks stylish, modern, and keeps it show ring ready at all times. The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density which provides a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact. Another safety feature is the semi-rigid chin strap and harness that reduce the risk of the helmet tipping forward during a fall. The internal comfort foam will mold to the unique shape of your head and never lose its shape, for a superior fit and level of comfort. It’s also removable and washable so you can say goodbye to stale and stinky helmets. Additionally, Samshield ensures maximum airflow through hidden vents that retains the elegance of the helmet without sacrificing breathability. Last but not least, this helmet is ASTM/SEI F1163-15 certified for your safety and peace of mind. 


CAUTION: Safety equipment must fit properly and be appropriately secured with manufacture approved parts only. Altering or adding to safety equipment voids warranty and can result in injury. As a safety precaution, inspect all products prior to each use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protection I’ve had this helmet for a few years now, had two bad falls within 24hrs of each other. Both where I hit my head good, got checked for a concussion and my scans came back clear! Love this helmet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Helmet Great fit and great look. I had this helmet before a met with a big fall. The helmet protected my head very well, but wanted to replace it (as well had had the first Samshield for about 4 yrs, so another reason to replace it). With the foam removable, washable liner helmet fits perfectly. This helmet is comfortable and looks great. Smart Pak is the only place to buy helmets! They had no problem sending two sizes knowing one would be returned (free by the way!) I can't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I say.... I bought this after we moved to a new barn that required all riders to wear helmets (I ride Western so don’t usually wear one). I did a lot of research and bought 7 different Troxel styles online (sincerely regret that because they all made me look like a bobble head). Decided I needed to try on in a store, and originally decided I would be looking at the Tipperary ones but was willing to spend as much as the One K Defender. But I admitted to the sales girl that I kind of wanted to see what the fuss was about the Samshield, even though I definitely wasn’t willing to pay Samshield prices. After trying on the Ovation Protege, the Tipperary hybrid and Sportage and deciding that I didn’t have the right headshape for them, I went for the One K. And really liked it, especially the rose gold version. But then...I tried on the Samshield. And not only did it look best on me (isn’t that the most important thing?) but it actually fit the best and was the most comfortable. So I was forced to go with the Samshield, 3 rides later and I still love it. I also love the styling, it’s just a gorgeous helmet and feels just as expensive as it is. When I need to replace it I’ll definitely be getting a custom one but my plain shadow matte will do nicely for now. At first I had buyers remorse but as each day passes I love it more and more and don’t regret the high price, even for a Western rider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was "just right" I was returning to riding after a few years and needed a new helmet to start back up with. I planned to spend half as much as this, and didn't particularly like the look of the samshield. I tried on other helmets including similar styled ones from other brands and nothing quite fit right. After sending 8 helmets back I decided to try to samshield to see what the fuss was about, and as soon as I put it on my head it was like angels sang, it fit so perfectly and comfortably. I bought it for the fit and comfort, but I like its features as well such as the removable liner (and ability to change liner styles), the outer shell material and the air vent is small but effective. The chin strap took some getting used to because its more forward than other helmets but is comfortable when you get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fits!! Love this helmet & this is the second one I've gotten. It fits properly & I have a hard head to fit, & its comfortable & it stays put!
Date published: 2018-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I felt a breeze on my forehead!!! After much urging from my trainer and barn friends who swear by his helmet, I gave up my comfy and ratty favorite “other brand” helmet. The chin strap took some getting used to as it sits more forward under your chin but the money in this helmet is the ventilation! When the wind blows at you, you can feel it inside your helmet! Weirdest but coolest phenomenon ever! That’s my favorite part!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love it. I really wanted to love this helmet. after wanting one for years I finally bit the bullet and bought one. When I put it on in my usual size it felt too small and it hurt my forehead, I returned it and went to a local tack store to try it on in different sizes after trying on about 3 of them I came to the conclusion that they just don't fit the shape of my head. I was really disappointed :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't like the fit This is a very nice looking helmet. However, while wearing it around the house to see if i liked it, the top of my head began to hurt. Looking inside there was very little cushion. Unfortunately i had to return it.
Date published: 2018-03-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Junky for the Price For the price, this helmet should hold up much better than it does. I have had mine for just over a year, and even though I have taken extremely good care of it, keeping it under a cover, and in a bag in my tack box when not in use, the leather trim around the base has peeled off in places and the chrome paint has chipped off the plastic vents in the back. It looks tacky. I've got a Charles Owen that cost half as much and it has held up so much better. Samshields are a fad. Save your money and buy something else.
