For sure what brandob said. After a rock said F U to my ear I got the Sweet Rocker FF and wear it for everything but play boating.

I have a long melon, and had a ProTec TwoFace (they quit making them in '11).
I just got into a Sweet Strutter that fits great.

My wife and girls wear WRSI helmets. If you have an average to large (but not huge) head, look at WRSI. They are very easy to customize to a big range of head sizes.

I think WRSI's are ugly, but knowing the level of R&D that went into making them safe, they're beautiful in their function.

Ultimately, I couldn't agree more with Don's try-it-before-you-buy advice.

I just picked up a shred ready "shaggy". It may work for a larger dome, I wear a 7 5/8 fitted hat if that helps...I think by far it's the best fit for my melon...

So, how can you buy the right one without trying it on first?

If you live in Littleton go to Confluence Kayaks and try on a bunch of helmets till you find the right one for your head shape and not the 125 pound chick you're talking to on the web. I Know "I read it on the internet it must be true.".
Sound advice. I'd also throw in that its nice to get and idea as to what is out there before you go to the local outfitter. Research different helmets on the enterwebs to be as educated as posible before you ever step one foot into a shop. Always be prepare to shop aroud for price and service.

I like my wrsi is a freakin chick magnet! Love it! But you may like some different.
