The 8000 is so f'ing comfortable. It has the best ventilation out of any helmet I have ever worn. What I like best about it, is that it is built in a way that you can't wear it improperly. I see many junior and rec players tip their helmets up to get their visor above their eyes, which is a huge risk to injury, and in sanctioned hockey in Canada, will earn you a 10-minute misconduct after one warning.

That said, I am thinking about getting another helmet. Lets be honest, as a referee, I don't risk near the injury I would if I played. The Bauer 8000 is one ugly piece of crap, and I like to look good on the ice. I'll keep the 8000 just incase I decide to play next season.
