So I am someone who is blessed with a massive head. I was looking at the Smith Vantage cause it has nice low profile. However, I don't care for the brim (even though it is a small one). On the Smith Optic webpage they mention "Low-Profile Regulator Adjustable Climate Control" as a feature for the Transport.

Any of you guys have info on how the 2 compare with each other as far as profile is concerned? Any other comparison info would be appreciated too.

Thanks

I'm not a huge fan of the profile of the Transport. It's comfortable, the fit is good and I like the Boa adjustment but you can see that it's kind of domey on my head.

I bought a men's helmet so that's possibly a factor but I wouldn't exactly call it low profile. Maybe if someone has a pic of the Vantage you can compare how they sit.

Whatever Smith helmet you choose, be sure to try it on. I've found their sizing to be inconsistent between different models. I have a large head and the fit of the Holt and Variant work best for me.

Can't go wrong with the Vantage, but you could go brimless Variant as well... both are pretty low profile. I usually wear a large in helmets, but dropped to a medium in the Vantage when I actually tried it on.

I have a transport and while it is a decent helmet and reasonably light etc. I would have to say I don't think it's low profile at all.

A men's helmet with what appears to be a pink stripe...nice.

Almost matches your pants :giggle:
