Two fairly expensive cricket helmets with very different safety features.

A. DSC Scud Cricket Helmet Medium (Sky Blue)
 

DSC Scud Cricket Helmet Medium (Sky Blue)

Price

The DSC Scud cricket helmet costs ₹ 3,749.00. This is relatively cheap for a helmet made from high-grade materials. 

Material

The helmet’s outer shell is made from poly-carbonate, an excellent impact-absorbing
material that provides strength and durability. Its inner shell is moulded and padded
with EVA foam that adds to the helmets' shock-absorbing characteristics. Between
these materials is a durable mesh-like material that allows air to flow freely; it keeps the
head of the wearer feeling fresh even after prolonged use.

The visor is made from stainless steel, a fairly strong material. It is also fully adjustable
so it can protect your mouth and face better. It also extends all the way to the ears and
features a moulded ear flap made from EVA.

This helmet also features a removable sweatband for cleaning purposes. It also has
built-in vents that aid in the air-circulation in and around the head. The helmet has a
unique strap adjustment feature that allows it to fit the wearer perfectly.

Comfort

The helmet is very comfortable when worn. It almost feels like wearing a cap with some face guards in front of your face. The sweatband takes away any problem you may encounter regarding sweat trickling down your face.

Intended User

The helmet is intended to be used by professional cricket players, though it is not limited to just professional cricket. It can be used anywhere from casual games to club matches, so long as the helmet fits the player perfectly. 

B. Klapp Professional Stainless Steel Grille Cricket Helmet

Klapp Professional Stainless Steel Grille Cricket Helmet

Price

The Klapp Professional cricket helmet costs around ₹ 5,400.00. It costs this much mainly because the materials used in creating one are high-calibre materials. As such, it is used in professional cricket because it is made to conform with the safety standards set forth by the ICC.

Material

The helmet is made from three layers of carbon fibre witch each one (starting from the innermost) stronger than the last. This ensures that players who use the helmet are safe when struck in the head by a cricket ball. The helmet also features a rear guard; it adds protection to the supposed unprotected areas of the head.

The visor is made from stainless steel, a fairly strong metal. It is mounted on the helmet itself and cannot be adjusted. However, it has built-in shock absorbers that prevent the transfer of force from the visor to the helmet.

There are multiple air outlets that allow air to circulate in and around the wearer’s head.

Comfort

The helmet is fairly comfortable to wear given that it has multiple safety features. It is light and does not add stress to the neck.

Intended User

The helmet was designed for use in professional play, even in first-class cricket. However, this does not mean that it cannot be used for lesser tournaments such as club matches and even casual games played in fields and in the streets.

C. Final Comparison

Despite its hefty price tag, the Klapp cricket helmet is the wiser choice between the two. Yes, it may cost more, but it also has several safety features that other helmets do not have. Regardless, both helmets are made of quality materials so you definitely get your value for money.
