Rated5out of5byfromVery Comfortable, Warm or Cool, Fits!I have a hard time getting helmets or hats because my head size is XL. The Smith Optics sizing guide put me in a size L, which was uncomfortably tight, so I went with the XL. Few snow-sport helmets area available this large. Venting, styling, adjustments, and fit with Smith Optics goggles are excellent. I'm really happy with this purchase.
