Sweet Pro has been a long time fav of mine on the river. From their drysuits, to base layers, as well as all of the sweet protection they offer. This isn't my favorite helmet from them... I was a BIG fan of the old wanderer helmet, when it had the bigger bill/visor out front. But, since the redesign, the strutter has become my go to river lid. Buyer beware, sizing can be an issue, try on before you buy, or get really good measurements/ call a gearhead at Backcountry.com. Same goes for shades. I went through 4 pairs of sunglasses before i found a pair that didn't push to hard on my temples. Smith Captain's Choice seem to be the best so far.
