MSR Xpedition Helmet
Love the ventilation and clear field of vision.
This helmet from MSR was everything I was looking for. The quality of the helmet is great especially the optically correct shield and the ventilation. For the price I feel they give you a lot of bang for the buck. The only problem I had is that I have a long, narrow head measuring 60 cm so I took a chance and ordered the large based on the size chart. Since this helmet does fit the intermediate oval I had to go for the X-large to fit me and it does fit just fine. I have this problem with most helmets that I have tried. I hope this helps others in choosing the right helmet for them.

Colorado trails,Cross country,City traffic,Crash
I bought the helmet in May at a local shop because it was the only thing they had that would fit me (size 2xl) i got it for around town and trail riding out in the small town i was living in Colorado. I then liked so much i decided to take it cross country back to new york. the venting was great and kept my head from getting gross even going through the deep south in late july. Once i got to NYC i used it for going around town and it was just as good as a city helmet as a back country helmet. While i was riding in the city a jeep ran a red light while i was travelling at about 35mph and cliped me causing me to fly about twenty feet then tumble head to toe four times. The crash resulted in a broken collar bone and ankle but the helemet saved me from having even a minor concussion. Would highly recommend this helmet to any one who rides

This helmet was exactly what I was looking for
This helmet was exactly what I was looking for, an inexpensive dual sport helmet. When I first put this helmet on, the cheek pads were a little tight, however after only a couple of rides they have broken in nicely and now the helmet fits snuggly but good. The sun visor is amazing, it keeps the sun out of my eyes almost all day long. There is also plenty of room for goggles underneath the visor.

I am actually pleased with this helmet
I've been using this helmet for a couple of months and found that it is largely oval on the head but down below the neck chin spot of the helmet it narrows down quite a bit and can be kinda hard / hurts to take off the helmet cause of the fabric ruff spots scratching against my bottom ear lobes but other than that I really like this helmet and would say its very stylish and comfortable and light weight and not really much distortion in the lens and for the money you pay for this helmet which is like 110, 120 bucks, that's great for all those who are cheap, but its not cheap as in china cheap but its like im ok with this kind of cheap quality cheap type. That's how I can explain it. Btw this is the one helmet I came to ultimately choose after looking over a lot of reviews of 10 or so top helmets at this price. Also forgot to add that I wear a medium and it is true to size, I have the average sizing head and medium has always been my helmet choosing size and yes it is tight at first but its breaking in very nicely.

Great air flow even at low speed
I use this helmet mainly for off road. It's constructed well visor is not flimsy at all. It does get a bit noisy at speed but head checks were fine even with the visor. The amazing thing about this helmet is the view I can use almost my entire peripheral vision thing is huge! Fit my head shape well more of an oval fit and a bit snug

Excellent for the price
Excellent helmet for the price. Vision is very wide almost like open face. Good ventilation.
Only problem is fit around the ears. Can't put headsets like my other helmets.

Excellent helmet, amazing price!
I bought this helmet to replace my 3 yr old size lg Shoei Hornet that was getting beat up and fit sloppy. My head measurement is 58cm so I purchased the lg MSR Xpedition on the advise of the Revzilla staff. They were right on! The liner is not as plush as the Hornet but overall It fits my head better. I like that the chin bar fits a bit closer to the face, and the eye port offers excellent peripheral view. My Oakley goggles fit under the shield just as advertised so that too is a plus. The Shoei Hornet chin curtain fits on the MSR and helps reduce minor turbulance. I tried it up to 80 mph on my Sertao and it worked great. With foam earplugs the noise level was very acceptable. This is a great helmet and competes well with helmets that are much more expensive. BTW the free shipping got it to my door in 24hours, very impressive service! I highly recommend this one!
