Quick Question about helmets

I'm thinking about getting a helmet this year. I have been riding for awhile now without one but my friend recently got a concussion. So I decided that i should probably invest in one. So I was wondering whether I should get one that fits me snug or get one that has a little moving room. I was thinking of getting one with a little room so i could wear a beanie under it. So I'm asking which one do you guys think is better? Snug or a little room?

Thanks

A little room for a skullcap/balaclava/buff whatever you prefer for those really cold days.

Mine fits perfect no room to move around. What do you do on those warmer days you don't have something on under the helmet. Your head has room to move around and slap harder if you fall.
My Smith is plenty warm even on those real cold days

This. If you're helmet is made for snow, then I highly doubt that you will need anything on under it. A helmet should always fit snugly, and never loosely.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

buy one that fits snug, is the right shape for your head, and has earmuffs or something like them. they are all plenty warm to be worn w/o a beanie. then get a face mask or neck gaiter for cold days, or buy a jacket with a hood that fits over helmets. scarfs are cool too it thats your style.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

I have a Smith Venue. It is really warm and came with vent plugs so if It was too warm I can take out the plugs for more ventilation. The other thing I liked is that the size was slightly adjustable. It had a strap with a knob in the back you turn or loose just like a bicycle helmet. I also liked the fact that it didn't make my head look as huge as some of the other helmets did. I'm thinking having adjustable size would allow you to make it bigger to wear a beanie, but I double with how warm it is, that you would need it.
