The WRSI Current Rescue Helmet is designed to provide maximum safety, with a highly adjustable and comfortable fit, for boaters and rescue professionals. High quality and user friendly.
  • WRSI stands for Whitewater Research and Safety Institute, an organization founded to advance whitewater safety awareness and technology.
  • The Current is designed to fit a range of head sizes. It includes 9 pads of different thicknesses that you can easily mix and match for a custom fit.
  • A multi-impact shell combines with an EVA foam liner and a polyurethane sub-shell to effectively dissipate impacts.
  • Soft EVA foam pads line the sub-shell for extra protection and comfort. They attach with hook-and-loop patches.
  • 1" x 3.5" reflective strips on the sides and back of the helmet greatly increase your visibility in low-light situations.
  • The Interconnect Retention System works as an adjustable harness to ensure a safe and secure fit.
  • Vented shell keeps you cooler and lets water drain.

          A:

          Paul, we will no longer be carrying the WRSI Rescue Helmets with the reflective stickers already on them. Just purchase the Current Helmet w/ Vents, in M/L (which will fit you) and apply the stickers yourself - http://www.nrs.com/product/43018.01/wrsi-reflective-sticker-set-for-helmets

          A:

          I bought a medium (I am about a size 7)and had to use all of the included
          pads to make it fit, so I would think if you buy a large you should be fine.

          Yes, Charles, it is CE EN 1385 certified. That's the only water sports standard and we sell the helmet only for water sports use.
