I will wear it when it's cold, I prefer to wear it then. But anything over 40 degrees or so I overheat and can't wear it. I sweat so badly in it. If I take the lining out the helmet is so big that it's pretty much useless.....It's pretty snug with the lining snapped in.


and on a really shallow note, aside from the over heating part I hate wearing it in the spring with just a long sleeved t shirt. I feel like I look top heavy and will topple over so I avoid wearing it in favor of a streamlined beanie. With a big puffy jacket on, the helmet looks more balanced and it bothers me less. I should really get over it. I know.
I'm assuming that you have the vent cover removed. Honestly the Watts is the best ventilated of the 3 or 4 i've used lately. The earpads ARE HOT AS FUCK THO, I totally agree. I got a Ride helmet this summer that is cooler but I don't like it as much.

Been considering wearing a thin merino buff on my head to help evacuate sweat.

I'm putting a pink unicorn on my next board gonna name it Mixie, fyi.
