Description

The Cookie G3 Full Face Skydiving Wind Tunnel Helmet!


The Cookie G3 helmet is the must-have full-face helmet for skydivers and wind tunnel flyers alike. Jumpers rave about the G3 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 tunnel-friendly visor locking plates in a variety of colors. A separate set of locking plates anodized in your color choice can be added separately. G3 side plates incorporate an outer ABS material surrounding the inner aluminum. 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


Cookie's 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

  • Dual internal audible pockets (one pocket on each side)

  • Front and rear vents

  • Velcro-less liner cinching system

  • The ability to wear certain glasses beneath the visor

  • Add-on mounts manufactured for the GoPro & Sony Action Cam POV cameras (available separately)


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 with these mounts. But ChutingStar does carry other camera mounts with independent cutaway systems for the G3.


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:



  • XS (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)

  • XL (57-59 cm or 22.25-23 in) 

  • 2XL (59-61 cm or 23-24 in).

Awesome Helmet!
Extremely lightweight and comfortable helmet. Never opens during freefall and comes with two different mouth pieces (for ventalation). A little expensive, but overall great helmet.

G3 - everyone has one!
The industry standard! The spring mechanism on the visor keeps it in place, and when down is an extremely quiet ride. As for sizing, the G3 uses 2 shell sizes: the smaller shell size is used through size Large, and the larger shell size is used for sizes Xl and XXL - different sized padding is used to differentiate the sizes within the shells.

The latch system is a very simple plastic chine strap with buckle. My only downside is there's no slots for audible altimeters.

Quality Product from a Quality Company
I am incredibly happy with my new matte lime green Cookie G3! It is by far the most common helmet at my dropzone in Colorado, and for good reason: it's a high quality product made by a company who knows what they're doing. Cookie also puts out great videos showing you how to care for and adjust your helmet. The sizes do run small, so don't be surprised when you look up your size. I am an "average" sized guy and I needed an XL - if it's possible, ask a buddy to try theirs out at your dropzone or tunnel. A great product all around!

I am very happy with the Cookie G3. I sized one in person at a Cookie booth at an event, so I knew an XL fit me perfectly before I ordered online. I love the way the chin strap mechanism works. I also like the design of the visor lock. A great product!

Excellent full-faced, rarely fogs even with just the slim chin insert. Some people complain about the visor locking system but I like it. Its pretty true to measurements, but make sure you account for when the liner packs out a tad.

Amazing helmet
Worth every penny that you spend getting this helmet. Colors are true and there is a great variety. No problems with the locking mechanism of the helmet. You can easily change out the visors, when needed. Awesome to customized with stickers and new locking plates. Comfortable. It took me a while to learn how to properly get the visor up, but once you figured out the motions it became natural.
It made skydiving way more enjoyable for someone that never liked the wind in her face!

Best Helmet Ever
This is one of the best helmets out there! You will never want anything more than this.

It is expensive, but it is worth every cent. The visor is sort of hard to open at first, but after you get it open the first time, it is very easy to open and close.

No complaints here, just one very satisfied customer!!

Good skydiving helmet
Good product overall, fits very comfortably, looks good, and does the job. I was surprised how easy it is to scratch the top and the visor as well - a few bumps against the inside of the plane and you got yourself a few marks. Also, if you want the matte black, be aware it stains easily.

Great helmet
I usually have a hard time with helmet fit, but this fits really well. The sizing is strange though, so check the chart, measure your head, and if possible, try one on first. I wear a medium in virutally everything, but my G3 is an XL.

Performance is excellent. Strap system is really handy and can be undone with one hand.

Audible pockets are pretty low tech, and not terribly convenient if you have a logging altimeter in there, but they do work well enough. An L&B fits and is *almost* unnoticable against your head.

Prices of skydiving helmets are ridiculous, and the G3 is no exception.

NOTE: The side plates it comes with are plastic so they're fine for tunnel use. I ordered tunnel plates not realizing this.

Awesome helmet. I've tried several other full-face options, and none of them come close to the quality, fit, feel, design, or visual appeal of the G3. Don't waste your time/money/effort -- get the best and be done with it! It is not cheap, but worth every penny.

Solid Helmet
There's a reason that 50% or more of the people on every load are flying G3's... Can't beat the comfort visibility, and (let's be honest it matters to you) style. Feels a little expensive at first but after owning mine for a bit I really can't say it's overpriced. 10/10 would buy again!

My favorite helmet
Comfortable and durable, with easy to maintain visor mechanisms. Wish I had gotten one size smaller because I didn't realize how much the padding would break down over time. Still comfortable, but isn't as stable for video.

Best helmet I've ever owned
For my first 3,000 to 4,000 jumps I used an open face as I couldn't find a full face that I liked as most of them were tight on your face and had crappy visors. When the Phantom came out I gave that a try, and although it was better than previous full faces it didn't quite suite me. I then purchased a G3 and there is no going back to any other helmet for me. For the protection from flying limbs in the sky and tunnel as well as the walls in the tunnel, there is nothing better. I also feel like I am less tired at the end of the day wearing a full face as it protects my face from the wind.

The sizing was a little off for my head, the measurements said and XL, and although that fit the best on the height of my head, it was really loose side to side, so I crammed my head into a L.

Like anything new to me, the helmet felt awkward at first, but once I broke it in and got used to it, I love it.

Great Helmet, Test Sizing
This helmet is a great all around purchase. Try a few sizes on from fellow jumpers before purchasing as they seem to run smaller than you would expect. The only issue I've noticed with mine so far is that the padding around the front of the neck is attached to the helmet right under the vent holes with what looks like hot glue and I'm seeing a few parts of it already showing signs of failure.

All the cool kids have them
It's a great helmet with a sleek design. I was shocked when I measured my usually small head and was charted a medium. Upon arrival, I was nervous that it was still too small but with some chin strap adjustments, it fit perfectly. The first few times opening the visor can be tough but it gets easier once broken in (3-4 jumps). No issues with fogging, although I do open it while under canopy.

Love this helmet! Very comfortable and there is a lot of adjustment you can do with the padding. The only down side I've found is that I wish the cloth on the back would tighten over my ponytail when I buckle the chin strap.

Great helmet.
Great looking, comfortable, and easy to operate (once you learn how). The padding starts off WAY tight (Order at least one size up from your normal helmet), but i wore my around the house for a few hours (dog looked at me like i was crazy) and then it fit perfectly. Warm in Colorado winters, but cool in our 95* degree summers too. Its not IN YOUR FACE like some other full face helmets, but just far enough from your nose that you don't feel smashed into it. A little high on price for such little actual impact protection, but its the world of sports helmets, so its to be expected. Great helmet overall.

This helmet is phenomenal. The ease of customizing it with different side plates or visors allows for great personalization. I would recommend this helmet to everyone. I'm waiting to find out how many uses it will take in order to have to replace the spring mechanism, but so far so good after about 8 hours of tunnel time and 100 or so jumps with it.

Absolutely Love this helmet. When putting it on, it helps to put two finger under your neckstrap, helps close the back tight without choking you. :) If the time ever comes that I need a new one, I will be getting another one in the blink of an eye. Hands down the best first piece of gear you can buy.

Everyone else has a G3 for a good reason
When you look around the plane and see everyone other than you is wearing a G3 you will begin to wonder why. Once you try a G3 you will wonder what took you so long. The helmet doesn't move around on your head no matter what position your body is in. The visor locks in place yet it is easy to open. When they open the door and you shut your visor the visor doesn't fog up. When you are jumping RW with that low number jumper and you take the inevitable foot to the face you will not need to worry about your visor getting damaged. This is a great helmet that wears well (pun intended).

You can't go wrong with a G3
I make close to 1,000 jumps each year. This helmet has been with me for the last 3 years. It has held up through a lot of jumps. I am a tandem instructor so it is also nice that it keeps people's snot and other bodily fluids off of my face. It very rarely fogs up and does a great job at canceling a lot of the noise in freefall. It also has some pockets to hold an audible. Great helmet!

WOW !!
I wear contact lenses when jumping. I was wearing a helmet and goggles. I would wear my goggles as tight as I could and would still lose at least one lens every jump. I tried 6 different pairs of goggles and nothing worked. I bought one of these and just did my first jump with it yesterday. Absolutely amazing. There is no distortion and didn't lose a lens. I would buy another one of these helmets in a second. I'm sold on full face helmets.

Try before you buy...
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!!!!!
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.
