Nice design but Sizing Is Off

I was super stoked about this helmet, they match my neon orange Oakley snowboarding pants. I checked the sizing chart and tried on other helmets to make sure this would fit. Unfortunately when I got this helmet the sizing around the largest part of my head was just a bit smaller than expected. I got the same size I wear in other helmets and this just ran a bit too small for me to keep it. I would recommend considering slightly larger sizing than normal. Other than that this is a sick helmet and would definitely recommend.

Keep your head intact

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this for my cousin. He's not a "helmet guy" but this one seemed to catch his eye. keep your head safe no dollar amount is worth ending up injured or worse. Proper sizing is key with any helmet. I made him try them on one day to find the right size before buying.

Audio fail, but...

Oakley has done a nice job with this helmet, and was able to find a way to make it work with all of their goggles. For several years I have tried most of the helmet manufacturers out there, to try and find something that will work with my Flight Deck goggles. Nothing until now, fit so well. Oddly enough, I find the Small Brim to work the best - creates the tightest seal with very little gap. The helmet itself is very comfortable, easily adjusts, vents well, holds heat when needed, and weighs just right - not the lightest, but not so heavy you constantly are reminded it is on. Starring you right back in the eye, is the glaring failure of audio compatibility. While the ear cup design is very comfortable, the little "drop in" slot does not provide enough room to insert after market bluetooth audio - such as Chips - without causing significant discomfort. For me the helmet is still a keeper, and now I just need to use my Outdoor Tech Adapt to make my wired headphones wireless - but in this example, the ear cup design is flawless.

Wait so what's the workaround for audio? I ordered one of these and had to send it back due to the discomfort that was felt after dropping in my Outdoor Tech wireless chips.....

Tim, I picked up the Outdoor Tech Adapt. Basically a small bluetooth adapter that you use with any pair of earbuds. It clips to a pocket on my jacket and I route the cord through to the inside. Pretty slick set up since it gives me control of the audio without having to pull out my phone and it can be worked with gloves on.

I used the Outdoor Tech Wireless Chips with a Smith Vantage helmet and thought the combination worked really well together. Is the Mod 5 less compatible, or are the Mod 5 ear pads uncomfortable with the Chips in place? I am surprised Oakley hasn't addressed this.

Laurence - The Mod 5 does not allow for enough expansion in the ear pad to accommodate the CHiPS. I have tried, and it down right hurts. Rumors on the web suggest Oakley working on a proprietary solution. In the meantime I have gone back to my Giro Range w/CHiPS.
