I'm getting a new helmet because my current Troxel Spirit does not fit properly. I don't have a round shaped head anymore, so I'm looking between 3 different helmets. Anyone have one they would choose?

Troxel Liberty Helmet - Horse.com
Ovation Protege Helmet - Horse.com
Aegis Aspen Helmet - Horse.com

I really like the Troxel brand, I've had their helmets for 7+ years now and I know my trainer loves them. But if anyone knows anything about the others I would consider them :)

I had borrowed a Troxel helmet from a friend and loved it, but when I ordered one of my own (different style as her style was unavailable), I was unhappy with the fit so returned it. I went with an Ovation Deluxe Schooler helmet and love it. Very lightweight, comfortable and adjustable.

I found the troxels to be very poor quality. IRH and Tippery are pretty decent without being super expensive. I am thinking of trying the ovation though. Tippery promised us a light colored helmet a year ago but so far nothing.

I love my Troxel. I always have. Maybe because last year one cracked instead of my head. But, I'm not sure since it's a different shape/style than the spirit. My head needs a different shaped helmet.
I will look into the other brands though :)
