Care of Helmets – WARNING – Helmet Bags

Laurie Callender General Safety, Helmets

A good quality, approved helmet is an expensive item so must be carefully looked after.
The helmet needs to be cleaned before stowing away in your helmet bag so it can be looked after and not be knocked around.

Ensure the helmet is dry internally from sweat etc. before sealing it up in your carry bag.

However you need to ensure the bag is stored in dry place so the helmet will not sweat inside the bag as you may find it will affect the paint as shown on the helmet below. This helmet was stored in a nylon gear bag.

If your helmet is going to be stored for a length of time, especially in the off season we recommend the bag be stored out of the sun and left open so the helmet can breathe to stop the build-up of moisture.
