Hockey helmet


Explanation:
Jofa is a brand name, but FYI and since the question was not capitalized, this could also be a possible translation depending on the context. When I was playing hockey in Sweden, the brand name Jofa had taken on the extended meaning of helmet, which was often referred to as "the jofa", much in the same way that the brand names Kleenex, Velcro or Xerox have taken on extended meanings, with velcro more or less becoming the generic term for the product.
