We ordered this for our son's 11th birthday. He was thrilled and has worn it so much since his birthday. I must say it is very durable, as our son is not easy on his clothing. It has been washed probably 5 times in the last couple of weeks. The helmet is not a "cheap" immitation either. I wouldn't suggest knocking your head with it on, but I think you know what I mean. If your son wants to be just like his favorite player then this is the outfit for you!
