Helmet sponsored by Scharf Norway
You know there is no way back when you insist on bringing your helmet to Spain because you simply can’t stand the thought of ending up with a heavy, sweaty rental helmet from the early 80s!
I could not care less last year – but that was before I got my new Scharf-helmet 🙈 I’m now spoiled with ventilation, the light, wonderful feeling of a modern helmet, no neck pain and great comfort. I will not head for a stable without it, no matter where the stable is located! Bringing my helmet to the sunny Andalucía would also put the helmet to the ultimate test. With 30 degrees in the shade, it is definitely a hot experience to go for a ride here!
But there is one small problem when it comes to bringing a riding helmet when you only travel with hand luggage:
It is made to fit my head. I have enough space in my suitcase for two helmets or all of my clothes. I decided to bring three extra outfits – plus the helmet! Because there is no rule against wearing safety equipment onboard an airplane, but wearing three layers of clothes is not as comfortable.
Spain, here we come!
