Is that kayaking helmets are really made for water use -- they have closed cell foams and glues that should hold up better than other designns.
You can get a decent paddling helmet in the $80 to $100 range, and the better ones are $200 to $300.
The question is, what is protecting your head from injury worth? 30? 200? I guess it depends on the value of the contents therein. If you are only willing to buy a $30 helmet, maybe your head only has $30 worth of contents. ;-)
