Default Question about a helmet

So I just bought a helmet, this will be my first year wearing one. I was wondering, do you usually wear a beanie underneath or does the helmet itself keep you warm enough? I'm asking because with a beanie underneath my helmet it gets a little to tight..

A thin beanie would probably be best. I wear a balaclava under mine.

I have a helmet with vents in it. I do not wear a beanie underneath. It keeps me plenty warm.

If you got a helmet that fits you properly, you would not be able to fit a beanie underneath it.

This is my first year wearing a helmet as well. I am already VERY glad that I have it.

J.Schaef hit it right on the head. Heed his advice on this as it is solid. It's also the same thing I would tell you.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
