Default smith holt problem

Hey Guys,

I just picked up the smith holt helmet after trying various helmets. The fit is great and its comfortable on my head but the only problem I have is the strap is too short. I tried extending the strap to its max but is still not long enough for my face. I guess I have pretty long face then LOL .

Is there anyway I could get a different strap from smith? I have tried different helmets such as the Red HIFI but this one is the most comfortable .

The plastic part where the straps form a Y - pull those down.

thanks, i tried that and it is still too short. I dont know why smith made the strap so short. I pulled that plastic piece all the way down to the clip. Is that correct?

Wow you have one long face.

The straps are simple nylon; it shouldn't be too hard to sew in an extension.

LOL no kidding. I dont really think my face is all that long to be honest. Maybe I should try a larger size. The brim of the helmet is about half an inch above my eyebrows. Is that not correct?
