The Scoop: The Rawlings S100P helmet aims to raise the bar for baseball helmets, offering ultimate protection like none other.
Designed to shield critical impact zones — the front, side and back of the head — the helmet is built with four layers to protect the head against ball speeds up to 100 mph.
The shell serves as the first layer, shielding the head from direct impact. The second layer features a composite insert that wraps the side of the helmet. The interior third layer is built with a special liner (EPP) to resist multiple impacts, and contributes to the helmet’s overall durability.
Layer four is made with Outlast Thermocules, which Rawlings says provides a cooling sensation around the head by releasing humidity buildup and balancing temperature.
Special material in the liner (Pro-Dri) helps with moisture management and combats bacteria. Translation: your head won’t seem like a sweaty, smelly machine.
