    I don't know what your price range is, but I highly recommend the Kep line of helmets. They are about the same weight as a baseball cap, protect the back of the head, are totally breathable and have a removable, washable liner. They come in tons of colors and the styling is very flattering.
    It is by far the most comfortable, protective and flattering helmet I've ever owned.

    Thank you everyone! I purchased a Tipperary sportage today and I'm very happy with it!

    Does it give any sun protection for eyes? (just curious, because I tried Tip and they don't fit my head )

    Very little Val, but there's a shade visor I'm going to buy that fits the Tipp. I really hate wearing sunglasses when I'm riding.

    I can get them in colors, so I'll get a red one for when I'm riding Casper, and a royal blue one for when I'm riding JJ. Must be color coordinated!

    Lol! You have to get helmet covers too then! One in red, one in blue!

    Last time I bought a helmet I had the same frustration and then just gave up and bought another Tipperary.

    I also ride bicycles, and with bike helmets, the more expensive helmets not only have more venting, but also have a lower profile. That doesn't seem to be the case with horseback riding helmets, as they all look huge on my head! Luckily, I rarely look very closely at myself in the mirror while I'm wearing it

    For everyday riding, I have a Tipperary Sportage and love it! My old Troxel was like a mushroom on top of my head, but I actually feel sporty in the Tipperary. It's quite breathable and lightweight, too.

    I currently ride in an old Troxel that is super comfy and breathable. I need a new one though, because I've had this one a loooong time.

    Most of the people at my barn have Charles Owens and while the general consensus is that they are very good helmets, I have also heard from a couple people that they have little to no ventilation.
