A batting helmet
is the best possible form of protection for your head while playing softball. It will not only protect your head, but the facemask will help protect your face as well. We have seen what can happen out there and it's not pretty.
Basic Features of Fastpitch Softball Batting Helmets
We carry Easton fastpitch
batting helmets. They are protective as anything and are the same ones used in both the Little League World Series
and the College World Series
. Features include:
- High-grade ABS shell
- Meets NOCASE standards
- Soft urethane comfort
- Rubberized matte finish
Size of Helmets
Easton helmets come in two different size ranges. The SR sizes
fit a range from 6-7/8" to 7-5/8". The JR sizes
fit a range of 6-3/8" to 7-1/8". With girls we have generally found that because of their hair, the SR helmets fit most of them. It takes a small girl to get into a JR helmet. If you feel like they are between sizes, Easton makes extra padding called a fit kit
Choosing the Right Softball Helmet
It can seem complicated so we've decided to make it real simple. We have split our batting helmets up into three categories: Good
, and Best
.Just click the heading below for the category of helmet that best fits your needs, or narrow your search even further by selecting the exact skill level you are looking for!
Good Softball Helmets
-- These helmets are great for first-year or rec players that are maybe only playing weekends and just need something to get by. It is the shiny style and does not have the grip finish to it, but the inside is the same as the "better" level helmets, so it protects you just as well. The mask does not come attached.
Good Youth Softball Helmets
- Good Adult Softball Helmets
Better Softball Helmets
-- These helmets have the same inside as the shiny series but are flashier and have more color options. They will come in either black or pink. These helmets will also fit a range 6-1/2" to 7-1/8." The mask does come attached.
Better Youth Softball Helmets
- Better Adult Softball Helmets
Best Softball Helmets
-- These helmets are for your serious travel ball, high school, or club team player. The inside of these is different with new BioDri fabric liner. A lot of teams like to match, and as the saying goes, "Look good, feel good, and you will play good." The mask does come attached and will match the helmet -- if the helmet is red it will have a red mask. The Prowess helmet comes in two different sizes: S/M is 6" to 6-7/8" and M/L is 6-7/8" to 7-3/8."

Customize Your Helmet Colors
Now suppose your team has the same green and orange colors as the Miami Hurricanes. Easton doesn't make that combination, but we sell decals to make that combo possible
