Default Helmet fit

I'm looking to get a new helmet and I found one I want so I tried on a friends to see how it fits (I'll be wearing it with a beenie under it so that's how I tried it on). It fit a little loose on my and when I moved my head really fast it would move so would it be safe to get the next size down and not worry about it being too small? His was a L/XL and the next size down is S/M

You do not want the helmet to have any big movements. Small movements such as a little tilt forward and back is fine, but you do not want it going down to your eyebrows or going up past your hairline on any up - down movement.

Use this test: wear your beanie, helmet and goggle setup like you will up on the mountain and start rocking your head like you're in a heavy metal band. If it's ultra tight, it's no good. If it flies off, it's no good either. If it stays on your head with minimal movement, you're good to go.

Thanks for the reply I was able to try on a the smaller size and with my beenie kinda bunched up and stuff it fit really snug around my head so I'm going to order the smaller size and just wear a thinner beenie. Thanks for the advice
