The Phantom X full face helmet by Square One.
The Phantom X is the next generation skydiving helmet developed with the primary purpose of solving all of the problems inherent in the most popular full-face helmets currently on the market. A state-of-the-art design has resulted in a safer, more functional and more user-friendly skydiving helmet already favored by professional and recreational skydivers alike.
A knee to the face is no problem for the Phantom X lens due its thickness as well as shape that keeps it away from the face. The lens is extremely easy to open and can be removed/installed in 20 seconds. The ease of removal makes it easy to wash and the lens can be aired dry or you can blot it dry using a paper towel or cotton cloth.
Skydivers rave on the field of vision of the Phantom X as well as the nose and mouth area fitting tighter then their current full face helmet. This is designed this way to prevent exhaust breaths from going up the lens, exhaust breaths should go out the hole.
Team Perris has over 400 jumps on Phantoms X helmets and have only replaced the lens once. The Phantom X lens lasts much longer than other full-face helmet lenses. Because of the lens shape people with eye glasses can wear the Phantom X with no problems at all.

Between these two sizes, 50% will fit a L and 50% will fit an XL. if your head is wide, XL will fit better. if your head is narrow, L will fit better. If your head is long from chin to top of the head, XL will fit better. Disclaimer: All heads are shaped differently. This sizing chart is only and guide and will not guarantee a perfect fit.
Extra notes on the Phantom X after purchase: Adjust the tightening strap and tack it down with a hand or machine stitch. When you tighten the helmet, pull the strap rearwards not forward and downwards (see user manual). The anti-fog cloths sent with the Phantom X work well, but you have to polish the inside of the lens for about 3 or 4 minutes (not like the instructions say). If you put a couple of drops of water on the anti fog cloth it works 10X better and faster.
- Great field of view Review by Rick
Quality Durability Price
I did not need to worry, it is awesome.
The best thing is it has a huge field of view. The face shield locks in place and releases easily. The worry of it fogging up has never been a problem so far. Even thou I ordered a size I thought would fit, it is a little tight but after 10 jumps it has started to relax a bite. A pocket for your audible altimeter holds my Solo2 well. A great feature is the closing snap. It works great once you set the tension/length. And very quiet in a noisy plane.
The ONLY down side so far is when I jump with someone is they can not see my mouth (ready-set-go). Not that big a deal.
Overall I have to give this helmet 5STARS.
