Would this hat fit a 61-62cm adult head size?
Great Company to deal with. Thank you.
I bought this helmet, for my daughter, last week in Decathlon store as it looked as a good value and has a nice teenager girl look. That's the pros.
The cons.... you CAN'T use it in ANY horse riding club in the UK as this is not PAS 015!!! Didn't know that and that's NOT clearly written in the store. Moreover, WHY do you actually sell it in the UK if you can't use it and looking at the comments - Decathlon UK is aware of this. Extremely disappointed!
Either don't sell it in the UK or put a BIG sticker on every non-POS015 helmet - DON'T BUY IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WEAR IT AT HOME as this is the only thing you can do with this helmet in the UK. It is useless in the UK.
thank you for your review on our horse riding helmet. I am sorry to read that you were not satisfied with our product.
All our helmets are legal in UK and follow the European standards with either Directive 89/686/EEC or VG1 01.040 2014-12. Also, our products are tested in labs and real life situations to ensure the safety and security of our riders.
It is true that our helmets are not validated PAS015 yet. We are aware that the riding schools are requesting this standard to ride in UK. We are working hard to ensure that all our helmets will be validated PAS015 for winter 2018 and remain the same prices.To ensure that no customer will face this problem, I re-shared with the stores the signage we created. I propose you to return or exchange your helmet in one of our Decathlon stores and apologize about this inconvenience.

If you want your kids to use this product for riding lessons you'll probably be disappointed; they won't let you because it's not kite marked or PAS15 compliant.
I wish I'd read the other review which tells you this before I bought one and I'd have saved myself 20 quid!
I'll leave it up to you to decide whether Decathlon should have made this clear or not.
If you're reading this after having the same experience you have my commiserations.
Thanks for your message. We try to make the information regarding hat legislation as clear as possible on the website and in store, we have banners below all the hats that explain whether the hat is PAS015 certified and therefore suitable for use in competitions/schools, or not. However we understand that it is possible to miss these and would be more than happy to offer an exchange or refund for the hats in question.
Apologies for the inconvenience,
This is the most confortable riding hat I have worn.
Bought this for my 4 yr old grandson. It is comfortable for him otherwise he wouldn't wear it. Definitely recommend this. Value for money
Purchased this helmet from the website in Hong Kong only to be advised by our riding school that our children cannot use it as it does not comply with Hong Kong safety regulations
Only problem with it is it's not PAS rated and it didn't say so on the website. I can only use it in private, can't use it at the stables when I have lessons because the insurance specifically ask for PAS and BS rated helmets.
Plus side, it's miles lighter, more comfy and I prefer it to any of the other major brands.
Excellent and comfortable
