This helmet is a perfect example of why it's a pain to buy things like helmets, shoes, etc., without being able to try them on first. It's a nice-looking, seemingly well-built helmet, but for me it was very uncomfortable in two areas (1) the strap design is bad, as they seem to get in the way and are awkward to get right before putting it on, and (2) once it was on there were two ridges in the top rear of the helmet that dug into my head. Maybe I've just got a weirdly-shaped noggin, but Giro offers comparable helmets at similar prices that are MUCH more comfortable. And they're available in enough stores locally that I can try them before I buy them. I'll be sticking with those from now on. Now I get to pay another $6.99 in return shipping for the privilege of getting to try on a helmet that I would have immediately rejected if I was at a physical store. Not a great policy, Backcountry--I'm not going to be buying any other "wearables" from your site. Not worth the inconvenience and "trying on surcharge."
