Landed on my bonce yesterday, got checked out and no concussion. What do you then do with the helmet? Give it away as fancy dress for school or anything else you can think of? I gave my last one to a theatre group when it didn't meet the latest standards.

Personally I would get rid, wouldn't want someone to wear it and it not be solid.

Hope you're ok!

Bin it is the only option unfortunately unless you can get sure it won't get passed on as a usable hat.

I wouldn’t give it away. It may well end up back in someone’s hands being worn as a helmet wasteful though it seems I would bin

Get rid of it in case you give it away and someone thinks it is OK to use it.

Turn it upside down and plant some flowers in it!

Bin it, ultimately that where it will end up even if it was to go via a theater group.

Thanks all, hadn't thought about resale, good point! Bin it is... or a rocking planter!

Cut the straps off then give away as costume - assuming one of the velvet type hats...
