Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, custom fit I bought this helmet when my old one was washed away after a forgetful afternoon at the creek. I got this one because my head is a little larger than normal and wanted to make sure it fit... and it does. The rotating dial makes tightening or loosening the adjustment band very easy, even with gloves on. My friend, whose head is much smaller than mine, will use it, and it's easy to switch between the two of us. It's also very comfortable and has yet to catch on my hair in any way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and easy to adjust Going on a 5 day trip down the Rogue, class IV and V rapids ahead. Water low, many boulders. Needed protection just in case. Wore the helmets full time on the river, it did not matter if I picked up the wrong one, as it was easy to adjust with just a click. They felt comfortable all the time, even when under direct sunlight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NRS Havoc Helmet The helmet is too deep. Even thou there is a dial adjustment in the back the adjustable headband hits your ears. Need to add more padding to the crown. I will have to return this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect helmet Wore it on a day on the South fork of the American. It was comfortable, and a none issue to wear. Easily adjustable to get the right fit, and holes on top were nice for water to drain out of when helmet was strapped to the boat. Looking forward to taking it on the Rogue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job The intended purpose was rafting, but I've found that this product works fine for more general use (like working in hazardous environments). Easy to get a good fit, sufficient padding, doesn't slide around a lot on your head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of bang for the buck! I bought this for a second helmet as I have a two paddlers Kayak. Easy fitting adjustment and secures well. I will likely be using it too. Great color and cosmetics. The price point is phenomenal for what this is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Fit I know it's a cheap universal fit, but I guess my wife and I have weird shaped heads. We returned both of them as they weren't as comfy as stated in other reviews. Pay the extra and get ones that fit you well.
