Full Face Helmet

Need to buy a full face helmet in the very near future and I am trying to figure out what to get.

I found a really good deal on a Predator Lee Full Face but it's been used. I don't think kayak helmets have a "once and done" shell system but maybe I'm mistaken.

Also was thinking about either SR Standard but it's plastic or the WRSI with attachment which has got some awful comments.

An old boating partner of mine had the wrsi and that thing would fall off regularly. I would look over at him in the eddy and one of the clips would be loose. Would probably avoid that one. I use a SR plastic (not full face) now and am impressed with it's durability. I have an older full-face, metal cage style that I dont use if nothing else works out or you want to save some $. It'll cost you a 6er. Probably fit up to size 7 1/8 or 7 1/4 pretty easily. PM me and I can send you pics if you are interested

See my comment on the Predator - I would avoid.
class V helmets

If you look at the SR and Sweet fullfaces they're very similar. I think it comes down to fit. Sweet has a composite shell on top which I think it better, but SR makes one now too.
