This blog discusses the JOFA helmet, the different models, who men who wore them, their significance, where to buy and sell them, how to fix and modify them, and why they are icons of hockey excellence.

The JOFA 390 Jaromir Jagr Edition

Following up on my previous post "Jaromir Jagr's JOFA Helmets", I decided to show some pictures of my JOFA 390 Jaromir Jagr Edition helmet. These pictures should give you a better look at Jagr's helmet, as it is difficult to get any high-resolution photographs of his old lid. This version of the JOFA 390 is an exact replica of the helmet Jagr wore during his best seasons in the NHL. This helmet is currently up for bidding on eBay, shipping worldwide.

Notice in this close up the visor mounts. I installed the visor pro spec, where the visor is bolted on both sides. The stock visors swing up and is held down with snap straps and J-hooks; similar to a full cage. The visor is an Itech HLC Deluxe, a beefed up version of the old HLC. Although it is not the same exact model that Jagr used, I think it's better; the logo has Penguin's gold lettering on black, and of course, the visor is brand new. It's virtually impossible to find a brand new Itech 3 point visor without modern Bauer branding. The installment on this visor was a very difficult project; I found the only way to mount it securely is to remove the front part of the helmet, install the visor, and then re-assemble the helmet.

Another thing that makes this helmet unique is its condition; this is the only new, old logo branded JOFA 390 I have ever come across. I'm happy to have found one in this condition, but I feel obliged to sell it; I'll let someone else go scuff it up!


  1. According to HECC the date on the sticker is supposed to be the year made I thought. Mine reads 8095 which makes no sense to me; unless that was a date code. If you can help me I would be ever so happy to learn. Also I have some questions that pertain to my JOFA 395 Purple
