Customer Reviews for Gray Nicolls Test Opener Senior Cricket Helmet
4 out of 5 Allan

Good mid priced lid. My medium senior weighs 917 grams. Ensure correct head size to fit because there is no adjustment, beyond one small forehead pad which velcros to the inside. Snug fit if sized correctly. Relies on chin strap only to fine adjust. Preferred to former lid, Masuri Club, because it is more comfortable, open and airy. MC feels too enclosed and leaves me feeling too detached from the action, despite all its adjustment options. Some reviews suggest GNTO does not have vents. They are there, but hidden underneath the fabric cover. Look after the forehead pad because, as of writing, they are not available to buy as replacements. Given the lack of adjustment and the need for comfort, this is an oversight that I hope Gray Nicolls will address. Loses one star for being less adjustable and no replacement pad. But overall a good choice for club/league cricketers.

Good quality helmet, you feel safe and protected. I don't like the new regulations that limit your ability to adjust the grill but regs are regs. Slightly limited vision past the peak which means you need to tip your head back just a little more than perhaps you would otherwise, but you soon get used to this. Overall a good choice for a serious cricketer.
