Sizing Information
Fitting your Helmet

The CS Helmet is classified "One-Size fits Most - Youth" (approx. 19 3/8" to 20 9/16" circumference); you may need to size up or down by completing the next steps. Place the helmet on your head and stand in front of a mirror for fitting.The frontal rim of the helmet should be no more than 1 inch (or one finger width) above the eyebrow. Once the correct height is established, the chin strap must be fastened at all four points of the helmet. This will keep the helmet in the proper position while you check and adjust the fit of the helmet. To adjust the chin strap, hold the chin cup squarely on your chin, and then adjust and fasten the front straps and finally the back. Make certain that the tension is equal on all 4 straps and that none is pulled out of alignment.

Back of Head

Use your fingers to feel just under the back rim of the helmet. The padding should be in firm, but comfortable contact with the head. If there are any gaps or if the helmet is too tight, try another size helmet, or adjust the velcro on the back of the CS helmet.

Back to Front

The fit of the front and back should be checked at the same time, because they affect each other. First, grip the helmet firmly on each side and rotate it gently from side to side, then up and down. The skin of the forehead should move with the helmet. If the helmet slips without moving the skin, try to adjust the velcro on the back of the CS helmet.

Second, lock your fingers behind your head and pull firmly toward you. If a gap appears between the front liner and the forehead, try to adjust the velcro on the back of the CS helmet.

Side-to-Side Movement

Place your hands on each side of the helmet and hold your head still. Gently force the helmet from side to side, watching the skin on the forehead. It should move with the helmet. There should be a firm resistance to the helmet. The liner should bunch the cheeks, but not slide around toward the nose. If there is too much movement side to side, try another size helmet, or adjust fit switch on CS helmets.

Facemask

The clearance between the end of the nose and the inside of the mask should be at least two to three fingers widths. Also, ensure that your vision has not been impaired by the placement of the horizontal bars.

The Grip Check

The final goal is to obtain a firm, yet comfortable grip on the head. There are several quick methods to assure that this goal has been attained. Put the helmet on and affix the chin strap

Top of Head Check

Lock your fingers on the very top of the helmet and firmly pull straight down on your head. Ask yourself where the pressure is felt. If the pressure is felt evenly distributed all over then you have a good fit on top. If pressure is felt on top, this answer is still acceptable. However, if you feel pressure minimally in front and back, then the helmet is too tight.

Vertical Movement

Again, place your hands on each side of the helmet and hold your head still. Gently force the helmet up and down. The skin on the forehead should move with the helmet, and with enough force it will eventually slip a little, but it should catch on the eyebrow without coming down on the nose. Check the chin strap. Caution! Even a good-fitting helmet can be brought down onto the nose, especially if the force is exerted on the facemask and not the sides of the helmet.

Final Overall Check

When you have completed the fitting, ask yourself whether you are comfortable with the helmet. If not, start the fitting process again.

Comfort

Comfort is a relative term at best. The phrase “firm but comfortable” has been used throughout the fitting process already described and therefore should be explained. The body type and sensitivity of each individual determines what is comfortable. Players with little skin fat in the head area may be more sensitive and they will not feel comfortable. If this is you, it is more important to maintain a firm fit even if it means sacrificing comfort. Remember it is very important to maintain a “firm, but comfortable fit”. This should be monitored over time and reevaluated after a haircut or weight loss.
