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 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, Garmin & 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)

- XL (57-59 cm or 22.25-23 in)

Not worth the money for a piece of cheap plasticFirst off, I love chuting star. Great customer service and super fast shipping. Now the helmet. Cookie G3 is an over priced piece of plastic, literally. Only 40 jumps on the helmet and the plastic/ rubber band spring visor mechanism has already broke on one side. The screws are a pain in the ars to take out in order to fix the rubber band spring. The helmet just over all feels cheap and unreliable. Should have went with my instincts and gotten a bonehead.
G3 Takes Away All Helmet Gear WorriesAll helmet gear worries are removed when using the G3 in the wind tunnel. I see others struggle with their helmet loosening up or having their helmet move around on their head, whereas with my G3, I put it on and fly. It allows me to concentrate on the dive and having fun. The G3 is lightweight and easy to maintain for years with replaceable visors and springs...and you can so make it yours with the abundance of colors, side plate designs and visor options. You can even have your own custom design etched onto custom side plates!
Great buy and great helmetGreat helmet and excellent fitting. Straps a little short for me and can be difficult to buckle at times
Good helmetVery good skydive and tunnel helmet. I will never go back to a open face for fun jumps. The bad point for me is maybe the size. I couldn't try one in my country, so i didn't know if i had to choose a L or XL, because i'm between it.
Industry standard for safety, comfort, ease of use, and adaptabilityThis helmet is basically the industry standard in my opinion. Great skydiving helmet and tunnel helmet as well. Color variety makes it possible to differentiate from the other helmets, and the tunnel plates add another level of individuality that can be added. I have forgotten to close it before jumping and the visor stayed put just fine. The visor stays in place tightly when closed, but I have had to open it during freefall on a freezing cold day to see my altimeter when it fogged up (only once, and they make anti-fog wipes for this) and was able to do so no problem. I've added a camera mount and chin-strap cutaway system and that's pretty easy to do as well. There's no way this thing is coming off during freefall unless you take it off or cut it away. I've banged heads somewhat during exit and during relative work and I barely felt it with the padding they use. My audible altimeter (Solo II) fits nicely as does my Pro Track) but you might need to stretch the foam, or remove a little to make it comfortable for your ears (mine are large so I had to pull some out, but it's simple). You can easily remove the front padding above your mouth when it's hot in the summer and/or to communicate better with others on the plane if you don't take it off on the way up. Can't say enough good things about these helmets. I have purchased 3 of them for myself and others and always recommend them. Sized a little small, so if you don't measure your head you will probably order the wrong size. Demo one or measure your head before buying, but you'll like this helmet.
Coming in from the stormThis helmet is Awesome! Having a full face helmet simplifies things and allows for better concentration without the wind noise. Easy operation, with one strap to cinch it to your dome. Visor flips up without any problem when it's necessary. Great product that will make you a better skydiver!
Awesome helmetI was skeptical of getting a full face helmet for a long time, but once I made the transition with the Cookie I was hooked and will not be going back to the old days. The helmet is easy to operate, and I love the fact that it is fully customizable, including: chin padding, dytter, visor, side plates, tightness, etc. As with anything skydiving related, the price is up there, but its worth it.
Top notch product that I would buy over and over.Love this helmet. Although it took me a little while to sort out sizing, now that I have I am never turning back. Ladies, if you like to wear your hair up in your helmet go up a size. Don't worry about it making you look like a bobble head, no one will notice. Being the klutz that I am I've taken hits from all angles in this thing and all I have seen is scuffs. I've never cracked the visor or the shell. About to buy another one just so I can have a back up.
AWESOME HELMET!The best helmet around! I love my hot pink G3 and there aren't that many out there that are part of the #pinkmafia. Really comfortable and easy to take care of too. I would highly recommend trying another skydivers on for sizing, as the size chart is a bit off. I've heard this from other skydivers as well. But this is an awesome helmet AND shipping was free on ChutingStar as opposed to other sites!
Worth itSharpest looking helmet out there!
