Talking New Helmet help?

Hey y'all! I just got a new Charles Owen Pro II Skull Cap in size 4. It is slightly too big. I called the place I got it from (online) and they said I can pad it. I asked about sending it back and it would cost me shipping to ship it back AND to get a new one. And it would take over 2 weeks. I decided I would rather just keep it and try to doctor the fit myself. How would I do this? Its only a little bit small so safety really isn't a huge concern here. Thanks!

It didn't come with extra pads? Strange. My Tipperary did.

Nope. You would think you would for the price you pay for CO

My helmet cam with a padding liner, but if you are looking for small pads to put inside you could always look for them in a biking section in a store and look for extra padding for helmets. Just a suggestion

NO!!!! Send it back and get one that actually gives you a headache the first few times. You want it to fit very snug after is settles. If you keep that helmet, be prepared to gallop cross country with the reins in one hand and your other holding your helmet onto your head. Been there, done that. NOT WORTH IT!

It's your money. I'd personally want a helmet that fit well to begin with.

I am really tight on money and really cannot afford to send it back, pay for another to be shipped to me, and wait TWO WEEKS for a new one that may not even fit

Safety (i.e. Correct fit) should always be a primary concern when buying a helmet. I'd suggest that you return it for the correct size.

... I don't want to be liable for giving any sort of advice in regards to making an ill-fitting helmet "fit" better...

Right now I have no choice. I am broke. Its better to ride with a helmet than no helmet at all
