small head helmet

I'm currently wearing an older protec (not sure what model). I have a pretty small head for a guy (6 7/8-7 fitted hat). I'd like to step up and get a new helmet. Anyone have recommendations on certain helmets that fit smaller heads better?

Thanks!

My girlfriend wears the scrappy and loves it. She has a very small head.

The Sweet Wanderer fits pretty snug. I am usually a small/medium, and their s/m feels a bit tighter than most, plus they send extra padding to go UNDER the padding that's already in there so it doesn't feel all funky once you add to it. Got a good adjustment band thingy on it too. Anyway, it's really comfy-- kinda like a penthouse for your head.

If you want more sun coverage, you might look at the TDUB too. I think the bill goes out a little further. I have a TDUB, and the padding seems to fit my small head pretty well. I havn't had the chance to where it on the water yet though.

I tried the tdub on, it's a bit big for my tiny skull.

Always try to get the best helmet, no matter whether small or big, but the protection need to be high in the helmet.

Sweet Strutter

I find the sweet strutter to run small. I would give their s/m a try, and try out the fit pads as well.
