A (gridiron) football helmet typically weighs between two and four kilograms (four to eight pounds) according to various gridiron helmet manufacturers.

In this weight is included the face masks which are compulsory at all levels of organised gridiron football. The face mask can account for as much as half of the total mass of a gridiron football helmet, but more typically accounts for around a third of the total.

On average, gridiron football helmets are the heaviest form of head protection apart from helmets for such purposes as deep-sea diving. This is because of the thick shells necessary to absorb the energy of the impact such that the headform acceleration exceeds 300g. The shell must also resist penetration of a falling 60 degree conical anvil with specific dimension.
