The G3 helmet is the latest release from Cookie Composites of its full-face helmet. It is a result of significant refinements to the G2 and Gas helmets.

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 G3 Helmet comes standard with a clear visor. The tinted visor can be added to your ordered and swapped out with a Phillips-Head screwdriver.

The new High Impact ABS helmet shell makes our already durable helmet almost indestructible. The G3 also incorporates d3o in the helmet liner. 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.

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 above. All colors of aluminum plates are in stock with Cookie engraving.

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.

Further customization with a name up to 20 letters along the bottom of a set of aluminum visor locking plates is available. Turnaround time is 2-4 weeks.

Logo or large engraving on the center of a set of aluminum locking plates is available. The file for the custom engraving should be e-mailed to gear@chutingstar.com. The file size needs to be greater than 250kb to ensure engraving quality. Vector based formats like Abobe Illustrator or Corel Draw work out the best, per Cookie. Converting .jpgs to a vector format may change the image depending on the quality. All engraving will be white in color with varying shading based on the side plate color. Turnaround time logo laser engraving on the locking plates is 2-4 weeks.

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. 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.

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.

Key criteria for 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 New G3 Helmet Features:

  • High Impact outer shell made of ABS
  • 2mm Injection molded poly-carbonate Visor with anti fog coating that meets optical standard
  • Secure Visor Locking Mechanism
  • Increased Peripheral Vision
  • d3o Impact protection liner
  • Front and rear vents
  • Velcro-less liner cinching system
  • The ability to wear certain glasses beneath the visor

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.

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. Available sizes include: xsmall (51-52 cm or 20-20.5 in), small (52-53 cm or 20.5-20.75 in), medium (53-55 cm or 20.75-21.5 in), large (55-57 cm or 21.5-22.25 in), xlarge (57-59 cm or 22.25-23 in) and xxlarge (59-61 cm or 23-24 in).

Note: ChutingStar attempts to keep nearly every color in every size in stock. In certain circumstances where a size or color is temporarily out of stock, you will be notified of what is in stock as well as a turnaround time for the exact color you desire.

I bought one from Chuting Star and went according to their sizing chart. With the measurement, I should be wearing an XXL. It arrived and it was way too loose, so I exchanged it for an XL. Same story, too loose. Finally, I decided to ask people at the DZ what sizes they all wear, and I was even able to try some on. I ended up going with a Large because it fit very well around my head, but was a little tight at the chin. This helmet rocks! But I would recommend trying on different sizes before buying online.

Great helmet!!!!! Review by Joey

The G3 is one of the best helmets I have owned. Does not fog up and is really built to last. I like the way it looks and feels when I put it on. If you scratch your lens, it is pretty easy to unscrew the locking plates on the side for fast fix. The only thing is the visor locking system. When the visor is locked, it is tricky to open. But you do get the hang of it after a while.
Over all, it’s the best in full face helmets for me.
Also, chutingstar has the best customer service ever!!!The G3 I got was an exchange I did because of the faulty Rawa helmet I had bought.Chutingstar gave me the G3 at no extra cost. Good company and friendly staff.
