Product Review: Shrey Armor Adult Cricket Helmet Powder Grill

Shrey Armor Adult Cricket Helmet Mild Steel Powder Grill Side

Picking a cricket helmet can be a bit of a minefield given how many versions are available, but for many I suspect preferred brand and price will be the main determining factors.

If you are looking for a Shrey and want to spend an entry level price then this helmet will serve any club cricketer very well indeed.

My Review

This was my first helmet. I had borrowed one once before (the first time I had worn one) and it was not a great fit. I did not think it was appropriate to turn up expecting to borrow kit, especially with COVID-19 protocols in place.

Without knowing too much (well anything) about them I opted to only look at Shrey and Masuri, and decided up front that Steel would be more than adequate for my skill level: I was not going to be batting for hours on end, nor was I going to be facing particularly fast bowling.

I considered a Neckguard but felt that was excessive BUT seeing how much cheaper the Shrey ones were I decided a Shrey helmet would be a good idea as I could add the Neckguard later. (NB: Surprise Surprise I have done so!)

The helmet is a good fit, very light and comfortable, with good vision. My only gripe with it is the strap at the rear that is used for adjusting the size (see photo below) as it makes getting the helmet on a little fiddly and it can become a little uncomfortable. A minor gripe for sure, but I would avoid this style in future (as indeed I did).

I doubt this is a surprise, but it is a great helmet, and you will be more than happy with it if you are club cricketer.
