The thing I look for in any helmet is removable ear flaps. I would rather have that feature than multiple ventilation holes.

I have a giro and I like it a lot. It has removable plugs in the vent holes for when fat old men get hot and tired, it's comfortable, and warm on those 50mph windy lift rides that happen in the west.

Yeah, the Lieutenant looks pretty sharp but with lack of vents on them I had to sadly pass. I was SOOOO close to drilling holes in it

I like buying my stuff on the net mainly cause I'm a tight wad. But the best advice is to try them on 1st. My head is an oval shape and the giro fit my head shape. Some of the others I tried were uncomfortable for me and would have fit someone with a round head. I believe others are made for pinheads ie Red Skycap. Sorry I couldn't resist.

Does anybody know of any helmets that have built in speakers for mp3 or whatever?? Killer I know you gave the name of one company....I just cant find that thread
To name a couple:
Pro-tec... Mercenary Audio
R.E.D... HI-FI
Giro... Nine.9 Audio II, Encore Audio I, Bad Lieutenant Audio
Bern Baker... Audio

Salomon and Giro sell replacement audio ear pads and I'm sure the others do too.
