Impact-rated, open-face Cookie M3 helmet
After extensive research, design and testing, Cookie announced the impact-rated Cookie M3 helmet!
The M3 is low-volume, open-face helmet that is impact certified in accordance with the newest European skydiving helmet safety standard. It’s a great choice for instructors, canopy pilots, military jumpers, newbies, tunnel students—pretty much anyone who is looking for greater protection or just wants to look cool. :)
Constructed with an ABS exterior shell and an expanded poly-propylene (EPP) internal liner, the M3 comfortably holds two audible altimeters. The liner is moisture-wicking, and while durable, it’s also easily replaceable. Available in sizes XS – XXL, color choices include black, white, blue and red—lime green and charcoal will be added soon.
Impact rating details
The M3 complies to the newly developed Skydiving Helmet Standard XP S 72-600. This standard requires the design of the helmet to comply with a list of technical requirements, including:
- Impact testing all areas in varying environmental conditions
- Snag testing to ensure a parachute line cannot be caught by the helmet
- One-handed buckle release under load
- Chinstrap retention
- Coverage and roll off for secure fit
The Cookie M3 conforms to this standard under EU Regulation 2016/425. (See these FAQs to learn more about the rating, whether you can put a camera on this helmet or wash the liner, and more.)
