"I got the pink one! I love it! I have a little head. It fits snug and doesn't move around like the other, less expensive ones I have. I like the lightness, as I have a low tolerance for things on my head. It has a ""strap keeper"" at the chin area that is cushy and comfortable while keeping the straps neatly in place."
I bought two of these helmets for my wife and myself and found that they fit very snug for there sizes compared to other helmets
I used to ride without a helmet due to the great discomfort of all the ones I tried. This Tipperary is the most comfortable one I have ever tried on. Now I wear a helmet every time I ride. I only wish it had more of a visor to it.
I've never known anyone who's worn this helmet out. Very lightweight and comfortable. Keeps your head nice and cool, even in the summer. Excellent quality for the price. I've tried Troxel and IRH and this surpasses them both by a mile!
This helmet protects the back of your head also. It is actually low profile. The colors are great. If you have a round(not long oval) head, this helmet will probably fit. You may need to order 1 size up if you are in between sizes. Very comfortable helmet with vents. Great price. Awesome deal if Tipperary's fit you. I chose this helmet over Troxel, IRH, and other brands.
