A helmet having an inexpensive polymeric protective layer for preventing or minimizing gouges, scuff marks, flares and the like to the exterior surface of the helmet is provided. The protective layer may be a post-production item which may be readily removable and replaceable by an unskilled user. The helmet is preferably used during a sporting event, such as football, since the protective layer is effective during practice, scrimmage or official games to protect the helmet's exterior surface at all times.
