    The only helmet you'll ever need...

    Durable, super comfy, looks cool. This is the helmet of helmets. Worn by Crosby himself. This is the best of the best!!!

    Best helmet ever

    I've worn a bunch of different helmets in my life (Jofa, Easton, CCM, Bauer) and I can undoubtably say this is the best helmet I've ever worn. Before the 4500, I was wearing the Bauer 5000 for 13 years and I'm happy I switched. The 4500 is lighter, less bulky and surprisingly MUCH more comfortable. You'd think that with the higher end, "technological" models with better padding or whatever, increased comfort would go hand in hand. But I can tell you this is not the case. While wearing the 5000, usually in the 3rd period my head would start to hurt just from the pressure of the helmet on my head but I have absolutely no pain at any time with this bucket. Oh, and not to mention IT IS CHEAPER!!! No need to spend $100+ on a helmet with this one available. If you're looking for a new helmet, you won't be disappointed with this one

    Why didn't I get this sooner?

    This thing it a beaut! First time on the ice with it and I turned that muffin of a slap shot into Shea Webber clapper! Now I'm wheelin to the net in style and wheelin those puck bunnies off the ice too! Oh, and it fits great and the vents work great as well.

    sty for days

    Buy a 4500. Invert the earloops and chinstraps to white (or black if you got it in white). Become instant sty lord.

    Turns Average Dudes into Studs Instantly

    This helmet is the only reason Jonathon Teows is any good. Period. Lightweight, breathable, and you look like the son of the Sty Gods.

    Review by Sheen (Posted on 11/10/2016)
    Really impressed

    Love this lid. I've worn quite a few Bauer buckets before and this one right now if my favorite. Not only do i look good, but the thing is light. Definitely recommend.

    Review by cory g (Posted on 11/7/2016)
    Good sty

    Best sty, and sty is everything which is why I would recommend this helmet to anyone who wants to look chill on the ice

    Review by DProc (Ri Mast) (Posted on 7/24/2016)

    Ight, first of all this guy up top has no idea what he's saying. Yes the 4500 has good looks, but it is the most protective helmet on the market!! Don't let the price deceive you! The thick foam absorbs the shocks waves on head shots protecting you better. All the new helmets have the fitted gel in it, and obviously when your head is sweaty, the helmet slips and slides. the 4500 doesn't. Why do you think 90% of the NHL players has it? Great helmet!

    Review by this guy (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    pretty sweet

    ok this helmet is super chill. it is very comfy if you fit it right and it looks absolutley dirty. as for protection, it is very protective because the thick foam absorbs much of the shock. i would definately reccomend this to a friend or to anyone who wants to like steezy

    Review by cash money (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great Helmet

    Alright before I skated with a 4500 I skating with a 5000 which technically has more padding than the 4500 but needless to say I have taken harder hits with the 4500 and got a concussion with the 5000 which is supposed to protect you against them which I found ironic. The style is sick and it really gives you the classic hockey look out on the ice and once fitted right you don't even feel it on your head.

    the only reason why I rated it 4 out of 5 stars is because even though at its price, it really doesn't make a great entry level helmet due to the lack of protection since the 4500 is geared toward the pros and the higher levels like hs varsity and juniors. If your new to the sport I would recommend something like the Bauer 7100 or The Mark Messier/Cascade line.

    Sick Helmet

    its bro

    Review by bro (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Strong, stylish, light

    I have been using this helmet since I started and it's great. The shell is strong and the thick,and the tough padding absorbs shock well. When I first started I skated too fast and hit the boards, then I fell back and didn't feel any pain when the back of my head hit the ice.

    Review by Newbie (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Best helmet I ever bought

    I'm in the market to replace my current helmet (also this model) after almost 10 years of playing with it on my head. I've gone right back to this helmet because it's a great fit, comfortable, and safe! This helmet is compatible with 99% of protective shields and cages out there as well, so you won't be searching for products to match your helmet.
    This helmet's the best!

    Review by sammy (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    love the helmet

    the helmet looks even better if you black it out and get a white cage for it

    Review by dangler #97 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great Bucket

    Great, lightweight helmet. Looks dirty, feels even dirtier. Used by the best pros (Kovalchuck, Malkin, Mike Green, Iginla) Wear with a white CCM fm480 cage, white loops, and keep the J-hooks black.

    Review by Claw the Danglefest (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great Helmet

    This helmet is great in all aspects. I myself like the look as well as the protection it offers. I use this helmet in a very high level inline league, and my entire team has one. I use it with a Bauer Pro Straight Cut Visor, and it fits like a glove. Great helmet and very affordable.

    Review by Bauer Man 81 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Does it's job

    This was the helmet I started out with. I always felt it fit a little small compared to other Bauer helmets I tried on, and even when adjusting it I never could get a good fit. The adjustment mechanism is kind of a pain because you have to unscrew it to slide the helmet so it's not an "on the fly" adjustment sort of thing. Mine also started to crack on the top after a couple of seasons.

    Review by bHk (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great Helmet

    Overall this is one of my favorite helmets on the market, Ive had 3 over the last little while to have more colours.All of them are in great shape and i recommend them to anyone. Sometimes you may have to change the foam around.

    Review by Allsnipesallswag (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    great helmet!!

    I am 14 and i play bantam AA hockey.But anyways this helmet is great i got it in june and its not scratched up that badly which i get hit alot cuz im smal and it doesnt hurt when i get hit also it looks sick if you black it out. when you first get it its not that comfortable but after a week its worn in and feels great so just a great helmet all around.

    The Best Helmet I've Ever Used

    I've used a lot of helmets before. Some CCM, some RBK, and a even a Bauer 1500 (worst investment ever). None of them lasted long or were comfortable, until I got the Bauer 4500. It's comfortable, easy to adjust, and durable. I've taken a couple pucks and hits to the head and it protected me well. I can't think of a helmet I would recommend before this one.

    Review by Andrew, Burnt Toast Captain (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Best lid on the market

    This bucket is legit. Great protection, very light, black it out looks sick. Get white ear loops for it. Bought this helmet in August still in great condition not many scratches. It feels amazing. Put a white cage on it. Very comfortable and stylish. Recommend it to any player.

    Review by Hockey swag (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Easy Choice

    There's a reason so many pros use it--it's light, sleek, and protective. If you want something that does it's job without any bells or whistles, this is the right helmet.

    Review by Blue liner (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Amazing Protection

    Like people have been saying in other reviews, there is a reason most of the pros wear this lid. Me personally, I was playing in a league game, and someone tripped me, and I did a serious backwards head slapper on the ice. This should have been a lights out situation, but this helmet saved me big time !! I will never trust my melon to another manufacturer. This is simply the best protection you can buy. And comfy, right out of the box.

    Review by MrRangers4ever (Posted on 7/24/2016)

    I use this helmet with my hockey team and I think it's the best helmet I've ever had. I suggest that you should get the Bauer fishbowl shield on it too.

    Review by Griffin (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great for sports photographers

    I am a professional sports photographer, and I love to shoot high school hockey. To get the good shots in any sports I have to put myself out there, but hockey presents unique risks not the least of which is errant pucks. After a few close calls this season I decided the time had come to purchase a helmet to protect my most important piece of photography equipment. I've shot half a dozen games so far with this helmet, and I've found it comfortable enough that it does not interfere with my photography. The fact that the thick lining keeps my head warm is a big plus. All in all, I feel a lot safer when shooting hockey while wearing this helmet and would recommend this helmet for any sports photographer looking for head protection when shooting a hockey game.

    Great Look Great Product

    Love it, looks great, may not be the best protection but dang does it get the job done

    Review by Chandler (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    More comfortable than it looks.

    When you first pick up this helmet, the padding feels hard, and it seems overall uncomfortable. However, i skated for about 4 hours at a sticks and pucks session almost immediately after purchase, and couldn't be happier. Incredibly comfortable, great air flow. The one con of this helmet is the ease of size customization lacks compared to more modern helmets. Still wonderful helmet, great protection. Trusting my melon to this one.

    Review by Swancantfly (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Bauer 4500

    Like most people, at first i thought the helmet was very hard and uncomfortable. But after a Practice or two, i was very happy with the way the helmet felt. P.S. if you get the bauer deluxe shield with it, you'll have unreal sty but you'll get chirped pretty hard.

    Review by Hurley (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great style

    Sick bucket...looks the best with the Bauer Concept II shield or the CCM 480/580. Black this baby out and you will look great. The protection is OK as I have hit my head pretty hard once and only got a small headache. It takes a practice or two to get it broken in but after that, it fells amazing on the head. Get this.

    Review by Ched (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Great Helmet!

    I play Bantam hockey and I love this helmet! It's a light helmet and cool looking. I got this helmet because I saw NHL stars like Patrick Sharp, Evgeni Malkin and Jonathan Toews using this helmet so I thought this helmet must be good. And it is! I would totally recommend this to anyone! The only con is that in it's first season of use the ear protector broke. But other than that great overall helmet!

    Review by The One Person (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    Really light, comfortable

    I needed a helmet in blue for my juniors team, looked for what seemed to be the best bang for the buck. This was easily the best choice I could find. It's extremely light, fits well on my head, and looks good (especially with a Bauer HDO pro visor on it). I just came off a cascade helmet m11 and was taken away by how much I love this thing. WARNING!! It doesn't offer the protection of a more expensive helmet. I can tell a clear difference between this and my cascade when I get knocked around. Also, if you have a wide head, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Review by Gon2Hcky (Posted on 7/24/2016)
    HOT !!!

    I bought this helmet to go on the ice and practice hockey with my kids, so it's price and positive reviews attracted me. It IS lightweight , but the foam used as the protective liner is thick, hard and NON-perforated! Meaning: it DOESN'T breathe! Within 5 minutes after going on the ice there was sweat pouring down my head like I had a plastic bag on it! After the session I took a close look at it and noticed some of the vent holes were partially covered by the liner foam and that there was NO way for cool air to enter around your head. The way it came heat would only escape from the TINY vent holes and NO where else. My solution: Using a stiff serrated knife I sliced away small amounts of the foam where the pads meet to create 1/2" channels from front to back on the left and right, and cross channels front and rear. It worked like a charm! MUCH cooler! (While I'm sure it voids any warranty, I highly doubt the removal of this small amount of foam would cause an injury. But just in case, perform at your own risk. But IT WORKS!)

    What a beaut

    This bucket is a beaut! If you buy this helmet and add a good looking black or white cage you will turn from looking like Kevin Klein to looking like TJ Oshie (Oshie rocks this sick bucket). SO BUY!!!!!!
