Safety Helmets are worn by many of us every single day and when it comes to buying a new one, it can be hard to know which height safety helmet is the best. You want one that looks good, is comfortable and most importantly will keep you safe.

With so many to choose from, we thought it would be helpful to put together a simple list of our best 5 height safety helmets available at Leachs. Please get in touch with us on social media if you use any of these helmets and let us know what you think of them!
