I am looking for the link to research about the temperatures inside the different colored helmets. My organization has black helmets and I’m in the process of writing a proposal for a different color and want the documentation to support my cause. Any help would be appreciated.

    MTDC did a study a few years back, they should have it in their archives. Black helmets added an additional 9 degrees in full sun ( I think)

    Here are the MTDC findings. Black is hotter for sure.
