  • Multi-layer design features an energy-dispersing polyurethane sub shell sandwiched between the multi-impact plastic outer and EVA foam liner to reduce concussions
  • Interconnect Retention System features a back adjustment and additional adjustment on the chin strap for the most effective fit
  • Internal cushion/fit system features 12 removable pads that allow you to get the ideal fit for maximum protection and comfort
  • WRSI manufacturing process utilizes 100% wind power and strives to be totally waste-free

Can't get it to fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I really like this helmet in theory, but I have been having a beast of a time trying to get it to fit. Also, the piece that holds it on to the back of your head is very difficult to adjust. My head is about 22" so I started with the M/L. Even doubling up on pads the thing kept sliding around. I returned it for a S/M and it kind of fits ok, but still doesn't quite feel right. I have a friend who recently flipped in class III water and managed to crack his helmet on a rock, so "kinda fits ok" just isn't going top cut it for me. I'm returning it for a different brand and a style with fuller coverage.

Great Helmet!

This is by far the most comfortable, well fit helmet I have ever used and worn. A friend has had one a few years and I've been drooping over it. The fitting/adjustment system really works. Buy small rather than large though! It's really hard to get a helmet that feels good AND protects, this one does it! I tried an NRS first, about half the price, and looks like a similar strap system, but it's not even close on the fit, and I returned it immediately. This is worth the money, no question.

Great Helmet... be sure to buy small

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this helmet to use while working as a whitewater instructor this summer. It's a great, safe helmet for most people. It's cost efficient, and it looks pretty sweet (which is something we all secretly take into account, right?...) After spending multiple three hour sessions across the summer trying to get the fit right, however, I had to move on to a Sweet that didn't slide around my head quite as much, even if it meant shelling out more dough. I think the issue arose from the fact that my head is right between sizes, and I bout the larger helmet rather than the smaller one. So, if you fall into that category, I'd buy small and be happy!

Excellent Design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet will give you excellent protection. it comes with a wide variety of pads to get a snug and comfortable fit. More importantly, however, are the adjustments in the back and the chin strap. When properly adjusted the helmet will stay in place no matter how badly you get tossed around in a rapid. Take the time to get that fit right so the helmet will not ride up on your head.

Best bang for your buck!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Having worked as a river guide for almost a decade, I have had the chance to try out many different helmets. It's just as comfortable as a more expensive helmet and you save lots o' money! It's what I use for my personal helmet. The other thing I like about this helmet is that it doesn't have those winding devices on the back to tighten and loosen your helmet, which is nice because there isn't anywhere on this helmet that my hair can get caught in. This is really the best helmet for your money and it's really functional.

Here is how to properly adjust your helmet to fit your head shape. FYI it doesn't come with the thicker big pad anymore.

Good helmet

I like this helmet, although I found it hard to fit. It still isn't a perfect fit, but I like the helmet anyway.

no vents, still stoked

this helmet rocks- one thing to note is that this is the NO VENTS version, despite the description. backcountry.com has offered to take it back and pay for shipping so no beef there. i like the price and the helmet so i am keeping it. fitting the helmet took some time but once you are done it is comfy. check out this video, it will help out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRREOigIGmc
bottom line: great helmet, great price, great service. thanks backcountry!

WRSI makes this same model helmet with vents, but Backcountry doesn't carry them.
