Rated 4 out of 5 by AthleticTrainer01 Parents Take Notice
This may be a great helmet based on fit and comfort, HOWEVER this helmet will NOT prevent concussions because concussions are caused by the brain bouncing off the INSIDE of the skull. Here is the exact warning from the Riddell website that is not posted here:
NO HELMET CAN PREVENT SERIOUS HEAD OR NECK INJURIES A PLAYER MIGHT RECEIVE WHILE PARTICIPATING IN FOOTBALL.
Do not use this helmet to butt, ram or spear an opposing player. This is in violation of the football rules and such use can result in severe head or neck injuries, paralysis or death to you and possible injury to your opponent. Contact in football may result in CONCUSSION-BRAIN INJURY which no helmet can prevent. Symptoms include: loss of consciousness or memory, dizziness, headache, nausea or confusion. If you have symptoms, immediately stop playing and report them to your coach, athletic trainer and parents. Do not return to a game or practice until all symptoms are gone and you have received medical clearance. Ignoring this warning may lead to another and more serious or fatal brain injury.
The moral of the story is helmets do not prevent concussions, helmets prevent skull fractures.
Thank you for reading!!!!!

The product was the quality we expected. We won't be able to test it till football season though. It took longer than expected to get the helmet and for some reason the face mask was suppose to be black but is grey instead. It was a special order item cause of the color. maybe we will just try to paint the face mask or have to order another one before football starts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dad of Boys Needs to come with a PUMP!!!
Riddell 360: High Price/Good Helmet but does NOT come with a Pump so really you can't air it up anymore unless you find someone who has a pump! Comes with some air in the helmet chambers but after a few games you need more air and you need a pump for a better fit!!! Other helmet pumps will/could mess it up due to the needle being longer so watch out! Riddell helmet pumps are hard to find so make sure you can find and buy one first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by William the Great! A good purchase
The helmet retains a good amount of heat. I was suprised to receive an insufflation bulb with the helmet! The pads that inflate gave a great fit for my son's head.

I purchased the Riddell 360 for my 11 year old son. He had a major concussion the prior season, so I wanted the best helmet I could find for him. He has been using it for three weeks and he loves it. With the air pads and extensive padding system this helmet hugs his head from every possible angle. I could not be happier with this product. Please note, the air pump does not come with the helmet when you order it from Dick's Sporting Goods. You will need to purchase that separately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bulldawg Nice Upgrade, but Take Notice.
My son is 9 years old. He sustained a cuncussion last year wearing a brand new well fitted helmet. We decided to upgrade this year to make sure we are doing all we can to protect him. The Riddell 360 was our choice. Helmet functionally is awesome and is very comfortable for him; however, the faceframe pads that are standard with the helmet are very small. My sons jaw line is not developed yet so we had to go with larger pads. It is difficult to get the faceframe pads and they are very expensive. If your child falls in to this category, I would recommend trying to get the "C" pads up front and save time/money.
