I really like my Charles Owens JR8. I'm 33 years old, but the adult helmets I tried were all far too big for me, so I went with the Junior edition. Happy bonus- the kids' version is cheaper!

I LOVE IRH helmets. They're so padded and comfortable, and they fit my head the best also.
Although I would recommend getting a helmet that has a dial on the back to adjust it

I tried on several more expensive helmets last time I was due for replacement and they all made my head look like Toadstool from Mario so I just went with the trusty old Tipperary

Verona, I LOVE your breeches in that photo! What brand are they? Where did you get them?

Those are the Goode Rider Elite Rider I really loved the knee patch version of those, as well, but I recently tried to order some and found that they were discontinued :( AFAIK the full seat are still part of their collection, but they're so different from the rest of their line that I wonder if that will change...

I love GPAs, but unfortunately, they are a bit expensive. However, when it comes to protecting your head, I believe that the splurge is worth it. Definitely save up for it, you shouldn't skimp when it comes to safety!

If they have the exact same safety rating, which most of them do, the cost is immaterial. Just because something costs more doesn't make it safer.

Dublin Arista and Dublin Airation. Both cost $150 and I got the Ariation first and then the Arista because a) it was during a sale and b) I've always wanted to velvet/suede helmet.
