Great helmet. I have tried on many and the other helmet brands just don't fit my head right. I pretty much only wear this when I'm doing hard core stuff, but I have it in my equipment bag and bring it with me everytime I go riding. THat way I have it on hand if I'm feeling daring. I also use it for night riding and if it is really windy or nasty outside. It does get a little hot after extended climbs... but it's not really intended for that.
