Sweet, WRSI and Shred Ready are the top 3 IMO. Each fits a little differently and has different benefits over the others. A helmet is definitely something you need to try on 1st.

I have a Gath "Jedi". It comes down a little lower on the temple that most others. I tried on many and this is the one that fit me the best (and protected my temple when I found out how deep it really is at the bottom of Husum Falls).

I use a wildwater. Light, not hot, and kinda safe.

Shred ready standard's are pretty good for the $ if they fit you well, and they seem to fit a large range of people.

try before you buy. i have been rocking a sweet wanderer while kayaking, and use a shred ready t-dub while rafting.

I broke 2 wanderers in one season last year, think I'm going for wrsi this year...and maybe a more solid brace. For the girls and guys with small nogggins, the moment fullface is supposed to be available in a size small, although I'm sure when.
