NEW ICE HALO

ice halo CharcoalFleece

The Ice Halo wraps snugly and comfortably around your head and secures at the side with adjustable hook and loop closures to help provide secure protection if you fall and hit your head.

Other manufacturers offer similar products at lower prices than ours, but they are also lower quality.  All our Ice Halo Products are tested in one of the top impact testing facilities in the world, using the Hockey Helmet Standard (CSA Z262.1-09 (April 2009) Annex A, Impact Drop Testing). Our products pass the standard requirements for front, side and back impact. When it comes to comparison –  Ice Halo products out rank the lesser valued ones on the market every time!

All Fleece Ice Halos can be machine washed with your regular laundry and dried on low in the dryer.

1. First time wearing:
-
Open the Ice Halo
-Hold the Velcro at the SIDE of your Head. (Either side is fine.)

2. Wrap the Ice Halo around your head and attach the Velcro together just above the tip of your ear. The Halo should be snug – not too tight, but certainly not loose!

Once you’ve adjusted the Ice Halo to fit comfortably snug, you can simply take it on and off without re-opening and closing the Velcro. If the Ice Halo feels to tight or too loose, simply follow the instruction above to re-adjust the size.  REMEMBER to make sure the widest part of the Ice Halo is at the middle of the back of your head!

It’s Not a Hat! It’s a HALO!

With the hectic Holiday Season near this may help you better plan your traveling time. See the Contact Us section in order to help us serve you.

GOOD ENVIRONMENTAL NEWS! The Hogline Curlers Proshop, in conjunction with FRISBY TIRE is now (we think this is true) the only place that now recycles grippers. Anyone who needs a new gripper won’t be throwing the old one away anymore! We will be taking old grippers to get recycled once a week. Check out our broom head and gripper recycling box just outside the entrance to the Hogline Curlers Proshop.

HOGLINE FREE INFO SESSIONS FOR ROOKIES: The Hogline Curlers Proshop will gladly visit your facility if you have rookie curlers and give these folks an interesting talk about buying their first sets of curling equipment. We will bring a small array of equipment so they can feel what curling equipment is like. We won’t sell them anything but give them the tools to know what they should look for when they want to buy. See our CONTACT PAGE to get in touch with us to arrange a visit.
