Comments about Mizuno Youth Samurai G4 Catchers Helmet:

Nice Helmet, ordered in Navy together with Mizuno chestprotector and Mizuno Legguards. Helmet is not true to collour on website. is almost black in collour with slight dark-blueish sheen, not sollid Petrol-blue at all. but ok.
Helmet looks a bit bulky when worn, but fits just ok on my (not to big) 11 year old. would have expected to be a little bit bigger in fit, because it just fits ok now.
vissabillity is ok after some adjustments with the straps and chin-protector on the inside. Nice that those can be removed and cleaned if neccesary. Very sturdy helmet that offers plenty protection. slightly curled rim in the neck is a bit irritating according to my son, especially when he has to remove helmet in a hurry. Looks like good helmet but would have been nice if it had been true to collour on the website and other Mizuno photo's.

      Comments about Mizuno Youth Samurai G4 Catchers Helmet:

      Purchased as part of Samurai set for my son. He's 4'5"- 85lbs and plays competitive 9U travel. Helmet is very nice quality, comfortable, and fits well, but he opts to wear a different helmet simply due to the weight and bulk. It is bulky to the point that is restricts head movement compared to his previous equipment. The weight would certainly contribute to fatique, and quite possibly a sore neck after catching 3-4 games in a day, even for a pretty strong kid of this age. His Rawlings HLCH2 helmet from last season is FAR lighter and more streamlined. Bottom line- This is a very nice, high quality helmet. If your little guy will play a 2 or 3 games a week, it may be an option. If he will be playing 6 games over a weekend in 100 degree weather, there are better options that will protect him just as well without weighing him down.
