Nice fit, good helmet
4 5

I've ordered a number of different helmets to try, and this one fit the bill. It's not perfect, but it had enough good things to make me decide that this was the one to keep.

Pros: securely fits my head, straps are comfortable and adjustable and the wheel at the back allows me to easily tighten after it's too warm for a hat beneath. It is not as high profile/stands up high from my head as some of the other helmets I've tried. The stickers come off, too. I'm thinking of grabbing some paint and making a cool design of my own since it is a bit on the plain side.

Cons: It is not a super lightweight helmet, although I don't really notice that it's on when I'm wearing it. I'm a bit worried that it will be too warm on a hot summer day as it's black and not as well ventilated as some of the other types.

Overall, it fit the best and was comfortable for me.

After three months of using the helmet I noticed that the side strap was breaking. The quick-adjust slides in the back broke off within a month of weekend usage making it difficult to move back and forth for sizing with a hat on beneath the helmet. The fit and the flexibility for ice climbing were big pluses, but this will be going back to the manufacturer. Three months of occasional use is far too short of a lifespan for the cost. Sadly, I would recommend taking a pass on this equipment.

I purchased this helmet without having tried it on first (mistake number 1!). The fit is not comfortable for me at all. It places a lot of pressure on the occiput at the back of my head with the rear support. When I tighten it, it pulls my hair. The straps are difficult to adjust over the ears. Overall I'm very disappointed in it. I'll be looking for a new helmet and hoping that I can sell it to someone whose head it fits better than my own....
