Of course a properly fitted helmet is going to be more protective than one that isn't. No one is debating that. At debate here is whether the 4500 is a protective helmet at all.

Any goalie will tell you the Bauer 1400 -- a goalie helmet that is HECC, CSA, and CE approved -- is otherwise called the "Widowmaker." Why? It's a crappy helmet that isn't nearly protective enough even at low levels of adult hockey.

The Bauer 4500 is the Bauer 1400 goalie helmet: yeah, it might be approved, but it's nowhere near the amount of protection as the Re-Akt. That's incontrovertible.
