THE CUT AWAY
The cut away marine safety helmet is a variation of our popular open face helmet model with the side sections of the helmet removed to allow for ear protection to be worn with the helmet. The cut away sections do not compromise on the safety of the helmet as it still meets the BSI marine safety helmet standard PAS 028:2002.
The Gecko cut away marine safety helmet does not have side inserts to mount equipment however it will take a sticky pad grip attachment for those who wish to use it alongside flashlights and camera equipment. Ear defenders can be mounted to the helmet or worn underneath it, visit our ear defenders page for details.

The grooves along the helmet are designed to increase the strength to weight ratio of the shell. It also allows water to run off the back of the helmet to keep vision clear.
The patented inflatable liner is an integral part of the helmet design; through an oral valve, the liner has the ability to inflate or deflate to create a perfect fit every time.
This offers an inherent buoyancy to the user, and if overboard and rising up to the surface will position user to rise with the helmet to take any impacts.
The neck is cut high to allow users full motion of their head to look all around them including above them in case of a helicopter rescue.
This also allows for life jackets and buoyancy aids to be used and not push the helmet up from the back and obscure user vision.
Every helmet is custom made to order, here are some of the customisation options:
