I picked this up while browsing. I wanted to replace my Nike Bauer 5500 which, after years of use was becoming uncomfortable. The IMS 9 fit well albeit more narrow than my 5500. The softer VN foam is a lot more comfortable than the EPP of old helmet.Review by Dave (Posted on 7/24/2016)
The lock for the size adjustment is still a bit stiff and requires some force to adjust size but I have been able to find a size I like easily enough.
I like to keep my helmet snug and with a reakt cage the combo is light and well balanced. The helmet stays snug and rarely slides at all in use.
I was looking for a much less expensive replacement of my old helmet with a similar 7500. This helmet certainly surprised me and even with the step up in price I feel more than happy with the choice to switch.
This helmet is GREAT! The single adjustment feature works well and is very easy to use. This helmet fits so well and feels so light that I do not even notice it on my head. Foam liners are very soft and form to your head. This helmet also looks very good. The Reebok I came out of looked absolutely ridiculous, like I was about to go into space ridiculous. Do not hesitate to lay down the extra jingle on this bucket!Review by greasy (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Its a decent helmet for the price. if the price isn't an issue i would 110% buy a re-akt. I find the IMS 9.0 really uncomfortable and i don't know if it's just because i have a really strange shaped head but it hurts. The helmet is also really easy to customize which is nice for the players who like to have their own specifications or wipe off the logos or what ever. Unfortunately it the J hooks don't come down far enough to have any use with the original style oreo cage which really bugs me. but then again, unless you really screw around with the J hooks, none of the J hooks on any helmet will do anything so i guess my self and all the other people who have oreo cages will just have to deal.Review by Nick (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I play alot of highschool hockey and I needed a helmet that not only protected my head from those big hits but also those little repetitive ones. I bought this helmet after coming off a concussion. My first worry about it was when i first tried it on practice and it hurt my head. It was tight and had some pressure points. By the end of the practice it was getting better. I played a game that night and it fit awesomely! I loved it. The memory foam takes some time to form to your head but it is truly an awesome helmet. Fits well with a cage and looks awesome! I would totally recommend it, awesome helmet, offers lots of protection at a good price.Review by Nafziger (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This helmet is awesome! It's as comfortable as the classic 4500 but with modern protection! Best helmet yet Bauer!Review by Jackson campbell (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This the best helmet I've ever had! It's as comfortable as the classic 4500'but with modern protection!Review by Jackson campbell (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I play in 2 games a week and coach another 4-6 hrs a week on top of that. This is a very comfortable helmet once you get used to the automatic spring loaded occipital lock which took a couple of weeks for me. Far more comfortable on my shaved head than the 7500.Review by freeheel (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Based on my head size the combo did not make sense, cage was too small on the helmet that properly fit my head. Purchaed a 7500 cage thinking there wouldn't be any problems,I was wrong. The IMS 9.0 is consierably narrower so I had to gently squish the 7500 cage to fit in the J channels. It wasn't that big of a deal. Better than spending the extra $ for a Re-akt cage.
I play Tier 1 AAA hockey so my team all has to get navy helmets and w get them customized. All my team had this or the react. As soon as I put this bucket was he right one Love the memory foam. Definitely get this or the reakt.Review by Ryan (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I love this helmet best bucket i ever got. i read a lot of reviews and despcriptions and decided not to waste the money on the Re-Akt. Has the same great fit and is just as comfortable and lightweight as the re akt for a much better price. ccm cages look great on itReview by They call me duster (Posted on 7/24/2016)

I try after reebok 11k, Bauer ims 9.0 easier and more convenient , especially in the area of the temple. I liked ims 9.0 more than Reakt.Review by Andrey (Posted on 7/24/2016)
got this for christmas last year and soon as i went on the ice with it the air flow was really noticeable. overall great helmet.Review by sniper13 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
At the beginning of the season I was using a Bauer 4500, at first I thought it was great but it just didn't have the protection I needed. I shortly went to the ims 9.0 and I fell in love! It looks just like the ReAkt, and has better padding inside the helmet than the 4500. You can't beat it for the price!Review by Cole the Sniper (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I use this helmet for reffing because I'm a hockey goalie. What I've found is that with most player helmets while I'm wearing them my temples kill! With this that has never happened. Great buy!Review by Coach Sally (Posted on 7/24/2016)
