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

Great helmet, great fit, great price!
After trying on many helmets, I decided on this one. It has an amazingly great fit, and feels comfortable and snug, without pinching. The opening is a little smaller, but once it's on, it hugs my head perfectly. I have a very small head (22 in.), but its a little longer. I purchased a "S" size and it fits perfect. With a little more break-in, the cheek pads (very snug at first) will be great. Nose deflector helps keep fogging down, but the crazy-good ventilation does most of the work. Shield does not seal perfectly, but also leaves room for goggles, if you're looking for a more off-road helmet. Slightly noisy, but I like to hear the road, as I'm on a scooter and I am a much smaller target, so I like to hear everything around me. The dual-sport style lends to an incredible visibility field of view. Aside from being a well-made, quality helmet offered at a killer price, this helmet also looks pretty bad-@$$. (Even with me riding a scooter)

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.

Good for the price.
This helmet has some good features but unfortunately they aren't very well implemented.

PROS:
Wide field of view and works with a set of goggles.

Not too heavy.

The venting seems to work pretty well.

Wind noise is OK, but I still wear earplugs.

Seems pretty aerodynamic and doesn't cause any problems at highway speeds.

CONS:
The "visor" is still in your line of sight when in the up position. Not a big deal but a little annoying. The seal around the visor isn't a tight fit either.

The "peak" isn't really effective for blocking the sun since it doesn't come down low enough and is shaped like a point, which only works if the sun is directly in the middle of your view.

The padding inside the helmet isn't very plush so there isn't much margin in getting a good fit. My head measured 58.5cm which is exactly between a MD & LG and I ended up going with a MD which was a little tight at first but seems ok now after a few weeks of breaking in.

Overall this is a good helmet for the price. With a few minor design changes this could be a great helmet.

Revzilla was very helpful and easy to deal with. I will definitely do business with them again.

Hard to beat
For the money you can't go wrong. Yes, it is loud at highway speed. Yes, the visor is still in your field of view when it's all the up. No, it's not terribly light and it will catch wind at speed. All that being said, it's 130 bucks. It's fits me fine, I went on an hour plus long ride and had no pain or discomfort whatsoever. The vents do what they should, been too chilly to experiment much. And it looks pretty good too.

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.

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.

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!

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

This is my first helmet and I'm impress it allows a lot of air flow once you get going on the bike. Their is also many air vents you can open or close plus I love the visor being adjustable and a good price for safety.

I own this helmet in a L but would like slightly thinner cheek pads. Does MSR make different width cheek pads for this gear? If not, are there pads from another helmet that would fit the snap configuration of this helmet but be thinner?

Has anyone put any kind of communication system in it? If so is it a tight fit with the speakers against your ears?
Joseph A on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not. However, the ear cavities are definitely sufficient for SENA style speakers. I wear ear buds with hooks without problems, but have small ears. I like this helmet a lot, but it's definitely more dual-sport oriented than touring.
I want to buy this helmet but i was wondering if MSR carry any smoked lens for this helmet?
thanks
A shopper on Nov 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There are currently no smoked faceshields available for the MSR M13 Xpedition, but we do carry the mirrored shield.
I currently have an Arai Profile and it fits me like a glove; I'm looking for a DS type helmet.
A shopper on Aug 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I would say this helmet the msr expedition is very ovalated from ear to ear and short to medium from back of head to nose but it is a little hard to take off and on since the neck chin spot of the helmet is very narrow but im sure thats just because it is still breaking in and I might also add that there was a breather deflector inside the helmet to keep your breath away from the lens but ended up taking that out because the tip of my nose was actually barely rubbing up against it and cant stand those little annoying things but now it feels very nice without it on and am pleased with the helmet overall.
I'm torn between the MSR Expedition and the AFX-55 Multi helmet. The MSR appears to have a track record while the AFX-55 seems to be a new product with/out any reviews or references. Advice??
A shopper on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have not been happy with this helmet, I was originally looking at the AFX, but they were on back order. I am getting ready to look at new options myself.
Hello. I recently purchased & received my MSR MS13 Xpedition helmet. I am returning it as it's a little too big, the visor fogs up really badly & does not clear your vision when riding with it up. Also, the peak catches too much wind at highway speed. I am curious, now that i'm looking at the AFX FX-39, if it's the same helmet as the MSR only being produced by a different company? I don't want the same helmet made by a different company. Curious if you know anything about that?
Nick O on Dec 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Great question. There are lots of versions of this helmet and the 37 (its predecessor) under different brands. This one does clear up quickly and has the ratcheting chin strap which is huge and is a big improvement over other models.
Does this helmet use a different shell for the different sizes?
A shopper on May 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The MSR Xpedition comes in 2 shell sizes, XS-M and L-XXL.
