      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.

NRS Chaos Helmet -Side Cut: not so great

Unfortunately, this is the first NRS product I have not been happy with. The rivet on the ear pad failed and came apart. NRS gladly exchanged it, but the same thing happened...Read complete review

Unfortunately, this is the first NRS product I have not been happy with. The rivet on the ear pad failed and came apart. NRS gladly exchanged it, but the same thing happened again. I'm not convinced the 3rd time would be the charm. Also, the sizing chart recommended I get an extra large. Even with the adjustments fully extended the helmet felt too tight. I can only image a killer headache at the end of day. I'm a commercial guide on the South Fork of the American and need to be able to depend on my equipment.

      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...

            Nice helmet, ear guards worthless

            • Snap On Ear Guard

            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.
