I purchased one last time they were on sale. Unfortunately the helmet was too small and I had to send it back. I am a tweener between Medium and Large and these definitely run small IMO. It was real light and seemed well made and designed. Id go on the bigger side. The seemed to be plenty of adjustment to tighten it up. I thought they look good too. I ended up with a Giro Surface S which I like but it is a lot heavier.

I kept the audio. The earpads seem similar in sound quality to the Skull Candy drops. The cords are crap, broke after two uses but my GF has the same problem with the Skull Candy ones, I think she is on her 5th cord or so. For $10 though they are a much better deal than the $30 or more they charge for other brands of drops.
Don't know why it wouldn't let you send me a PM. I checked my settings, and everything seems to be checked and unchecked in all the right places, but I'll check again just to be sure.

I went ahead and ordered one in XL with the audio kit. Thanks for the input and the response! I'm glad to hear that you found the helmet to be light weight, as that is really important to me. I used to ride street & dirt bikes & a heavy helmet would cause some neck pain after a very long ride. I figure the same goes for riding the slopes.

Thanks again for the response & input!
