The Cookie G3 helmet is the must-have full-face helmet for skydivers and wind tunnel flyers alike. Jumpers rave about the comfort, quality, flip-up lens security, color options and the number of mounting options for the GoPro and Sony Action Cams.
In close consultation with world champion teams such as Arizona Airspeed and Arizona Arsenal, Cookie designed and tested the G3 in environments encountered by professional skydiving teams.
The new High Impact ABS helmet shell makes the already durable G3 helmet almost indestructible. The helmet is available in 6 sizes and 14 different colors. The G3 comes standard with Black ABS locking plates as well as a black drawstring helmet bag. The G3 Helmet comes standard with a clear visor. The tinted visor can be added to your order and swapped out with a Phillips-Head screwdriver.
The d3o liner in the G3 helmet is a specially engineered material made with intelligent molecules. They flow with you as you move but on shock lock together to absorb the impact energy. Traditional skydiving helmet liners are made from a range of material like PE and EVA with an exterior comfort covering. While these materials are fantastic for thermo forming and comfort, its ability to transmit impact forces is limiting. The d3o material surpasses other materials in its ability to transmit forces.
Customize your G3 with aluminum visor locking plates in a variety of colors. A separate set of locking plates anodized in your color choice can be added separately. There are many European wind tunnels that do not allow the use of the standard aluminum side plates as brushes with the walls can effectively create marks. The tunnel version of the G3 side plates incorporate an outer ABS material surrounding the inner aluminum, which solves the wind tunnel issue. The outer ABS has a textured finish to provide extra grip when using gloves as well.
Key benefits of the G3 helmet are:
- Thicker Visor for better protection
- Visor locking system that cannot fail and leave the wearer with an open face shield in freefall
- Low jaw line, increasing peripheral vision and communication
- Increased ventilation for the hour long wind tunnel sessions

The G3 features the original VMech Visor Locking System that works unlike any other in the industry. The system makes for easy opening and positive locking of the helmet visor. The visor is 2mm polycarbonate and features a complex curved design for extra strength, unsurpassed field of view and an anti-fog coating. The helmet's cinching system is simple and secure, adjustment can be made to customize the helmet fit and once locked down just throw the helmet on and jump.
The G3 helmet features a unique choice of replaceable Mouth Pieces depending on your needs. The Slim Mouth Piece is used for jumpers who require or prefer the mouth to be visible in freefall. This option is ideal for instructors or tunnel use. The second is a Contoured Mouth Piece used to direct your breath through the front vent of the helmet. This option is ideal for jumpers in humid of fogging conditions. Note that the helmet ships with both Mouth Pieces as standard.
The Sony Action Can Sleeve or the Contour Rail Mount can be added to the side of the G3 ABS or Aluminum Visor Locking Plate to attach either of those POV cameras. Cookie also has developed the optional GoPro Roller Mount that can be attached to the top of any G3 helmet. There is currently not a cutaway system available for the G3 helmet, so keep that in mind if deciding to attach a camera to this helmet.
The G3 is available in six different helmet sizes through padding installed in two shell sizes creating the most comfortable fitting helmet on the market. Using a tape measure please determine the circumference of head to the nearest 1/8 of an inch. Do this by placing the tape measure around the widest part of your head which will be above the eye brows and ears.
