It's a winner
I got the chance to try out my new helmet this past weekend. I am happy to say I did not test it by banging my head and helmet on river boulders. However, the helmet is as comfortable as a helmet can be. The H.O.G. occipital lock is great, it allows for an adjustable fit that keeps the helmet from slipping around but not so tight that you get a headache. I have a small head and used very little of the added padding strips that are included. If you have a large head the helmet may be too small.
