Strutter helmet - ample protection?

Found a new one for <$100. Does anyone have input/stories about the low volume of this helmet being a problem - such as someone took a injury hit that a higher volume helmet would have prevented? Or has the baseball bill, caused the helmet to slide when underwater?
Not going to do class V, but want good protection for shallow 3/4 creeking.

Love mine, have had it 6-7 years. It's the best fit I've ever found.


Actually quite warm in the winter due to its close fit.
yet somewhat warm in the summer due to its close fit.


Bill is short-ish, so I've never snagged it on anything. Definitely not affected by hydraulics due to the close fit.

I have a ginormous head and WRSI didn't have a L/XL when I bought mine. I would consider WRSI as well. (but like you, bought my Strutter used..spent $50 or 60 back then and it was worth every penny).




And some advice I got from others when fitting hockey helmets: everyone's head is shaped differently. Different helmets are also shaped differently. Buy a decent helmet, but buy a decent helmet that fits YOUR head. It's safer if it fits you than a "really safe" helmet that fits poorly. So...brand is important, but not the only factor.

Pretty sure Steep And Cheap has that exact helmet on sale currently for around $70.

My recollection is they used to use different shock absorption liners in the Stutter compared to the Rocker. But looking at their website there's no indication that there's any difference now. I wonder when it happened - it looks like on they switched the Rocker from EPP to layers of EVA combined with MIPS technology. Anyone know when they changed? I'm curious what I have now...
