Most comfortable helmet?

Hey everyone! (Or should I say "hay"?)
I am looking to buy a helmet... And I'm looking for suggestions, since I have always used my stable's helmets.
So, here's my question: What is your favorite / most comfortable helmet, and why?
Oh, and about how much did it cost? (I guess that would help too...)
Websites are GREATLY appreciated.

I have an IRH Elite helmet and I love it. It's proven to be very comfortable and cool. I got in on closeout at for like $80 something. Like I said, it is comfortable and fits me and doesnt make my head too hot.

This topic comes up regularly. I always say the same thing. Here it is again;
I use a Tipperary (about 80$?) and used to use Troxels.
I find that if you have a very round head (circular from the top view) you will do well with a Troxel. If you have an ovular head, longer on the sides, you will prefer a Tipperary. I find mine soooo comfotable that I forget I have it on.

Tipperary, oh goodness! Very comfortable. The lesson kids are always stealing mine for that reason. I can hardly stand any other helmet; it has me complete spoiled.

Green Broke should be trying on every helmet that the store has to offer and make sure it fits your head. Something that might fit me perfectly, might not fit you at all. There are helmets out there for round or oval look carefully.

This! The helmet the person next to you finds to be the most comfortable could be painfully uncomfortable and ill fitting on you.

Go to a tack store and try on every helmet with the assistance of an experienced sales person.

Thanks for all of your input! I am going to go helmet shopping with my aunt before Christmas *hopefully*. I don't know where I'm going yet, but I am going to try on several different sizes, as some of you have suggested.
Thanks though! You have no idea how much this has helped!!
