That Gath RV is one of the most unique helmets in the skydiving world and loved by every skydiver who owns one.
The Gath with Retractable Visor (RV) has long been favored by skydivers for the pull-down visor for wind, sun and face protection. The visor is infinitely adjustable and blocks more than 98% of UV light. Audio vents are fully adjustable.
The helmet and visor work great in all orientations of skydiving from belly to sit to freefly to canopy flight.
The Gath RV is available in sizes of XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL. ChutingStar stocks the Gath RV helmet in the white, kryptic and flat black "rubber" finishes.
Other colors, such as blue, silver, red, orange, carbon and yellow are available by contacting ChutingStar directly or returning the order form via e-mail below. Colors not in stock have a 1-week turnaround time.
Note: Each new Gath RV comes with a smoke visor installed. Other visor colors are available separately from ChutingStar.
- Unique, affordable = awesome, more jumping/drinking Review by Mikalishious
Quality Durability Price
Don't be fooled by the 3/4 face - this stunning helmet is unique, and performs great. I jump without goggles and the shield down, and have minimal air come up to my eyes; I haven't tried freeflying with it yet. Obviously, though, it won't protect from rain in those wetter jumps. When the weather was a bit cooler or damper, I wore a thin balaclava to cut the breeze and rain. Perfect addition.
The visor is stiff, so will only move with a firm grip or a hard bump. A little fussy to change the visor, but easy once you figure out the process.
The helmet is very light, and fits nicely.
The price is affordable, so you can spend that extra $200 you are saving on jump tickets and beer!
The ONLY real downside about the helmet is the airvents on top: Regardless of my hair length, the wind pushes my hair through the inside padding and vents, and tugs when you pull the helmet off - a minor annoyance. Simple solution: Jump with a nylon cap or balaclava or buff, etc. covering your hair. (Posted on 7/19/2014)
