      A:

      There is no extra accessory for the chin strap, but the strap material
      itself is pretty soft, and it fits snugly under the jaw, so I never had a
      problem with the strap rubbing. Regarding weight, I couldn't tell you how
      many grams or ounces, but it didn't feel especially heavy or light for a
      helmet of that size and protection, which is to say, fairly light,
      considering that it's plastic and foam for the most part.

      It weighs 18 ounces, 510 grams. It has a webbing chin strap that secures with a side-pinch buckle.

      A:

      It's very light. Almost don't notice it there. I would have to pull it out
      and weigh the thing, but it's weight is negligible. No extra chin
      protection. Just a strap under your chin, although you could probably
      fashion something if it's of concern. Works fine for me as is. Hope this
      helps.

      A:

      There's not a lot of weight to it. Its a very conferable helmet. There are no extra chin parts. There a removable ear covers.

    Good Headgear

    Nice helmet, fits well, easy to adjust and lightweight. Not sure how well it protects, fortunately I didn't have to find out.

    I used this helmet for a couple of days rafting in the northwest. The helmet fit was great, and initially I figured the adjustment mechanism would be pretty slick. Nope. I couldn't keep the thing attached and connected, it just kept getting pinched inside the cheap padded covering and coming open. I get that it's nice to have the ability to fine-tune the fit of a helmet but this was a disappointing example.

        Bought as a budget alternative. Good simple helmet for warm climates.
        Surprisingly the ear piece attachments broke after 1 use and some metal parts are rusting...

              Best Uses

                Comments about NRS Chaos Helmet - Side Cut - Closeout:

                Snap on ear guards fall off way too easily; 1st use, set in grass before getting in boat and one fell off. The only way to not lose the guards is to always have on head which isn't always needed during flast streches of streams and strap to boat. Going to have to glue them on if wanting to keep the ears protected; should have bought another helmet with built in gaurds with this fix.
