The Bauer 4500 hockey helmet is defined by its classic look. With an iconic structure and slightly narrower fit, this helmet is considered a favorite among many NHL and college level players.

  • Dual density foam padding for a traditional feel
  • Dual ridge crown for increased protection and comfort
  • Quick tool adjustment for a personalized fit
  • Ergo translucent ear covers for added protection

Bauer’s 4500 model features dual density foam padding, creating a traditional fit inside the helmet. Many players enjoy this style of padding that Bauer has used for years, giving them the snug, classic fit they are looking for. The 4500 uses a dual density liner, found between the helmet’s shell and the thick layer of foam padding, adding extra resistance to head impact.

The dual ridge crown highlights the helmet’s construction, providing increased protection and comfort. On the outside of the 4500, the two-piece shell provides venting areas on the front, sides, and back, giving the helmet a sleek look while keeping your head cool during those fast-paced games. And the Ergo translucent ear covers provide a little extra protection for an area that helmet structures neglect.

The two-piece model also gives you the option to personalize the fit of the helmet. The quick tool adjustment feature allows you to easily unscrew the shell and expand or contract the helmet to give you the right fit for your head size.

The hockey helmet is arguably the most important piece of equipment in terms of safety. Experts state that concussions are mainly due to acceleration or deceleration of the brain. While helmets may not prevent concussions caused by these forces, they are crucial to limiting injuries of all kinds on the ice. The Bauer 4500 provides any level of player with a well-known fit and feel, and an iconic style recognized throughout the hockey world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bicycle Helmet! After reading the Virginia Tech summary of their tests with hockey helmets, I decided that I would use this as a bicycle helmet instead. They are in the process of testing bicycle and La Cross helmets as to their safety standards as well. The one thing a bicycle helmet doesn't offer in the back of your head coverage. Well this does and it is great! Fit is fine and the ear protection holds ear buds with no problem. I am glad I did this. Get a lot a head turns on the bike with it on. I think this was a great idea if I do say so myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dang good helmet This is my helmet of choice for playing goalie. I have been using it to play men's 'B' level hockey for 5 years and never once gotten my bell rung. These are unbelievably tough and protective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rides Low and obstructs eyes I've been wearing the 4500 for the past 10 years or so and recently bought a new one. The fit feels different than the previous versions. The helmet seems to be deeper at the inside top of the helmet, because mine rides so low it slides down into my eyes. I never had that issue with my other older 4500. I had to take my 1/2 shield off and go back to my 10 year old 4500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet for the price. The Bauer 4500 is an amazing helmet for the price. Only problem I've had so far is some pressure in spots in the back where it hasn't broken in yet. Padding can be a little stiff but that's any new helmet. Overall I love this helmet and it provides the protection you need without overpaying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from favorite helmet I used this in high school, juniors and college. it's the simplest helmet and cheap, plus the style is unbeatable. probably not as protective as other bauer helmets or reebok or messier helemets, but i'm not a football lineman so this gets it done for me

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NHL Caliber So many NHL players still use this helmet. It is comfortable and sleek, not bulky like the 8500 or 9500. Though it does not provide quite as much protection.

Are these youth, junior or adult sizes?

Asked by: ETrain
There is no set junior or senior size helmets like you would find with hockey skates. If anything, Junior would be the XS and SM size and Senior would be MD and LG. Don't just go off age because heads are so unique. Please try some on if possible, we have many retail store locations. If not, we have a great return policy and you are welcome to buy a few different sizes and return what does not fit. Thanks!

Where would I find the size on this helmet?
Asked by: Matt_435
It's printed on the back of the helmet along the bottom edge. It will say something like HH4500M. The last letter represents the size. M = Medium, S = Small and so on.
