Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Less is more is the theme of this helmet. It has minimal adjustments and that makes it very convenient. Just like a baseball cap, the liner has a plastic adjuster in the back. Since this is to protect your head it has two rows of adjusters and they are thicker and tougher than a baseball cap.
The helmet looks good. I got it to match my Marmot bibs and the color is spot on! At first I thought the visor was going to annoy me when I popped the goggles up, but it does not. It's a purely aesthetic element, but I like it.
I wanted an easy way to drop in headphones and this helmet accommodates. I was unhappy with the fact that there is no way to secure the headphones once they are in, so I had to bust out the sewing kit and sew the ear flaps shut with the headphones inside (just a few threads to keep them from shifting). A couple of pieces of Velcro is a much more elegant solution and would keep the liner washable, but I was in a hurry.
The price on it is quite good right now, so for the money it’s a great value.
