Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandee Andrews Not Sure How To Review...
My star ratings as far as quality, price and overall would all be five stars, however, I've had my Troxel Sierra a little over a year now, have never had an accident in it, and one day I noticed the headpiece didnt fit so well. Upon closer investigation, I discovered that the plastic tabs holding it in place had sheared off somehow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by All Around Cowgirl I love this helmet!!!!!!!
I used to have a spirit helmet by troxel and it sat on my head like a top hat and made me sweat alot. When the gps thing broke I got this helmet and I am alot more satisfied with this product! The vents make me barely sweat and it fits alot and better on less bulky...i dont really feel it on me when i am riding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by M Caldwell Defective Construction and Design
I do NOT recommend this helmet. The design and construction of the helmet are faulty. I wore it twice before the "GPS system" broke loose - it is attached by a tiny little plastic button. Then the helmet was loose and could not be worn for safety.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shop Maven VA Nice but Hot
Having borrowed one from a friend and likeing it, we got this as a replacement for a failed Cheyanne (brads holding sizing bracket popped)free from Troxel. First thing we noticed is the bracket is the same thin plastic that caused the brads to pop on the Cheyanne. Also, the older model we borrowed had the thicker rubber gasket. Still, this Sierra is holding up ok 90 days in. One odd thing is how HOT ours is -- the borrowed one was much cooler. We even took out the flip-fold liner -- still swearting buckets in it. We have a Reliance for shows -- it's far cooler. So, we are beginning to wonder if we somehow got a model with vents that don't work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Halfmoon Black is good, but don't buy pink.
I got two of these helmets, a black one for my husband and a pink one for me. The black helmet's adjustable Fit System seemed thicker and more sturdy than the pink helmet. The pink helmet's Fit System was made of thinner plastic and broke after 2 months of wear. Now the size of the helmet is too big for me and I need to find another helmet, which is frustrating.

I just recently took a bad fall off of my horse and after an MRI and chiropractic advice, I do not have a concussion, which because of the force of which I hit the ground with my head I was convinced I had. I have always had Troxel Helmets and this time, wearing this brand literally saved my life. Thank you for an excellent product that I can always trust.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Teresa Visor strap comes unglued!
I had this helmet about 3 weeks when the decorative strap above the visor came unglued. I exchanged it, but the same exact thing happened again. This time I couldn't exchange it because it wasn't within the 30 day refund policy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ali Helmet Is A Must!
I LOVE THIS HELMET! I used always ride in one of Troxel's basic schooling helmets (the Spirit, I believe) and always found it to be ill-fitting, bulky, and uncomfortable. I recently purchased the Sierra and I LOVE IT! I used to wear a Large Spirit but found that the Medium Sierra worked the best for me! The Sierra is not bulky, is very breathable, and quite honestly I don't even notice it is there. The helmet is as stylish as a helmet can be and I am no longer embarrassed to wear a helmet. Like I said, I love this helmet and WILL recommend to it to ANYONE! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leann saved my life
This helmet literally saved my life. I walked away from a fall with a minor concussion but it could have been fatal if my helmet did not fit me properly, hold up to the major impact or if I didn't have one on. I am buying the exact some one to replace the one that took the brunt of the accident instead of my head. All the paramedics and ambulance drivers told me if it wasn't for this helmet I wouldn't be here to do. So thank you Troxel for an outstanding and life saving helmet.

I got this helmet no more than a year ago, and its falling apart like a 6 year old helmet. the back came off, the fabric is comming off & the inside broke. I'm really surpirsed because this is a Troxel helmet. My old helmet i go maybe 10 years ago is in better shape than this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicki Finally! A helmet that he isn't too embarrassed to
In the search for a good helmet for my 12 year old son to wear for 4H, we came across this helmet. He wasn't too keen on any of the other choices out there, but this one he liked immediately. I love how it fits and adjusts super easily. The peace of mind knowing that he is protected when participating in various events with a well fitting helmet is definitely worth the price. (He likes how it looks, so I know he won't be tempted to take it off!) This one fits in well with trail and western equitation classes and for english classes, you can put a cover on it. I Don't know if all helmets have this, but this helmet adjusts so quickly, you can just use two fingers to size it in after it is on the kiddos head! No fussing around, figeting with buckles/straps. VERY NICE

This helmet is listed on the Troxel website for $119 so I was excited to get a discount on such a quality helmet. I've been using it for 2 weeks down here in the HOT humidity and it manages to keep my head pretty cool. The adjustable head band ensures a snug fit in case you're not the exact size recommendation, and the construction is solid. Customer service while ordering was wonderful. I also love the leather and suede accenting. Two Thumbs Up!

I hit a tree yesterday head on at approx 3035 MPH gallop. It busted the front visor and crack the front shell ever so slightly. I hit my head,face,chest,right arm and right leg on the tree as it caused me to do a 3 spin helicopter before hitting the ground. Thanks to this helmet I had no major head trauma or injuries. Not even a headache. The only damage was my pride! THANKS TROXEL. I will be replacing it with another one tomorrow!
