JC Jackson wears the Schutt Air XP Q11 helmet and has been since his days at Maryland. In my opinion, the Schutt Air XP is one of the coolest helmets for a DB to rock.
The Schutt Air XP Q11 combines the old Schutt Air XP shell with the most up to date padding from Schutt. Based off it’s old-school appearance, you may assume this helmet isn’t safe, but that’s not the case. The Schutt Air XP Q11 is a 5-star rated helmet and also one of the lightest – weighing just over 4 pounds. This is a great option for any skill player or a player who values lightweight equipment.
Unfortunately, the Schutt Air XP Q11 is a “Pro-Only” model but you can get the extremely similar Schutt Air XP Q10 for $450 from SchuttSports.com.
