The ultra-safe Anarchy Helmet from NRS protects your melon with two-layer foam technology often found in motorcycle and bike helmets. I like the flashy white and green color options for visibility and style. It also comes in black and blue. The best feature is the easy-to-use BOA fastener at the back that lets me dial in fit and keeps the helmet firmly in place, even in the water. Wear with ear pads on or off.
