    Cheap helmet?

    I need a cheap helmet and I need to know what size I am, is there any way to tell without going to a place and trying on? I use a helmet at my stable but I'm going to be volenteering at a place by cleaning up after animals in exchange for riding privledges, but I need my own helmet. Help?

    You HAVE to go and try helmets on. You don't know how they will fit your head, so you have to try them on

    Go to your local Tractor Supply. They sell Troxel Helmets there and you can try them on. Cheap, and there are right there for you to assess the size you need.

    There have to be Tack Stores out there somewhere. There has to be somewhere you can go in person to see what they have helmet wise, try them on and find out what size you need.

    Even if you find out what brand and model works on your head like it should, you can always write it down and buy it online for a *probobly* much cheaper price.

    Its best to try them on, but the sizing is pretty universal. If you have friends just ask to try some on. You can measure your head as well, but I wouldn't rely on that too much.

    Don't buy ones that are sized: small, medium, large, etc. without trying them on. Those sizes are not specific enough.

    I'd go and try one on, don't order online without trying one on first. Also its your brain we are talking about I'd rather spend more money on saftey - that's just me and my parents.
