I am looking to sell an almost-new Bauer 8000 helmet, size large. I bought it at the beginning of October and wore it for roughly 30 games. The helmet simply didn't suit me, so I decided to buy a new one this afternoon.

Like I said, the helmet is only about half a year old, and it does not include a visor or J-hooks, but it does have the snaps required for a visor. The logo on one side is a bit worn due to the electrical tape I had covering it.

I am looking for $75 CDN or best offer. In stores, brand new, these helmets sell for $150.

Any inquiries, send me a PM and I could email photos if wanted.

Thanks.

I love that helmet. Best fitting that I have ever had.

What's the color? I assume it's black (electrical tape) but I figured I'd ask. My team uses royal blue.

Yeah, mine is black. That colour is required of officials.

The Bauer 8000 is an excellent helmet. It is comfortable, has a lot of ventilation, but it just doesn't suit an official appearance-wise. It's more of a playing helmet than it is an officiating helmet.

I decided to opt for a CCM 1052 Tacks helmet. The one thing this beats the Bauer 8000 for is weight. The 1052 is as light as a feather. The other qualities (comfort, venitlation, etc) is equal to the Bauer 8000 imo.

Yeah, the 8000 is a bit heavy as helmets go, but it just fits my head so well.

I hear good things about the new CCM helmets. They don't quite fit my head right but it's a very nice helmet.
