And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly comfortable and cool! I bought this helmet a few months ago and really couldn't be happier with my purchase. It is incredibly comfortable and cool, it fits really well and I pretty much forget I have it on. It looks really nice and low profile and the suedeish cover is lovely.It is true to size, so measure well. I had read comments suggesting the sizing was small so I was generous with my measurement, I could have gone the next 1/4 inch size down, but it does come with extra cushioning to adjust the fit which worked perfectly.I would love to get this helmet in the navy blue too :) Overall I am really delighted with this helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet! I've had IRHs every since I started riding and tehy are by far my absolute favorite. I just bought this helmet last winter for IHSA competitions and I love it! It fits perfectly and isn't bulky (nor does it look that way!). It's ultra light and very comfortable!If you have big, thick, curly hair like mine, I would suggest maybe going up a tiny bit in size to fit hairnets in (or try the no-bow hairnets... they're marvelous!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet! I had an IRH previously and while I loved the fit, I hated the lack of ventilation. This helmet is perfect! Still has the great IRH quality and I stay much cooler throughout my ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet... I bought this helmet to replace my OLD "trail" helmet, a Troxel Sierra, in "tan"...the inner suspension system had started to break, (had it 5 years +). I do have a Charles Owens GR8...it is "newish" and fits well but it is much too hot for most months in Florida, no vents! I read in the customer reviews that the IRH Elite EQ was very well ventilated, IT IS :-) I bought the same size as my CO, 7 1/8, I took a chance on size/shape, normally I go to a store for helmets...but I "knew" that Smart Pak is excellent about returns/exchanges. It fit perfectly AND it is VERY well ventilated no "hot head" here! It is MORE comfortable than my CO! The "many" reviews REALLY 'help" when buying online. Thank you Smart Pak

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet and an even better price! i LOVE this helmet. I have had Charles Owen's for years and finally I decided I didn't want to look like a mushroom head anymore so I shopped for a new helmet. I have a very round face and the IRH looks awesome on me. I didn't want to spend the money on a GPA and the IRH is just as awesome and I think it looks better one me. Great purchase overall i am very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this helmet! I have had this helmet for almost a year now and I love it! It fits and looks great! My trainer, who is a Charles Owen lover, loves my helmet and wants to get one for herself for schooling. I have had problems in the past trying to fit all my hair in helmets but it's no problem with this one! I use it for schooling and for shows and I am always getting compliments! I highly recommend this helmet for schooling/ showing. It's also lightweight which is nice on hot summer days!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Helmet This is a very nice helmet suitable for the schooling or show ring. I measured my head with my hair up and it fits true to size. I can neatly put my hair up in this helmet without the use of a hair net due to the shaped back that cradles the ponytail. The quality is very nice and while I can't speak 100% on durability since I just got it, I went ahead and gave it 5 stars because it seems very well made. I only gave 4 starts on value because you can purchase this helmet on other sites for about $20 cheaper, but I bought here since I was placing another order with SmartPak. I will be using this helmet for schooling as well as local shows and IEA shows and I think it will fit in very well. It is not quite as light as other helmets I have had and is slightly larger but it still does not give you the huge mushroom head look that other helmets do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the vents on this helmet really work! it keeps me pretty cool (although if its 100 degrees dont expect not to sweat a little) and the helmet is also really comfortable. i would order a size up b/c tends to run alittle small
