I'm asking for a new riding helmet for Christmas, but I'm not sure which one to get. I'm partial to the black ones with the "racing stripe," but only if the stripe is a darker color. Any suggestions? I would school and show in this helmet.

They have IRH helmets with different colored stripes. I have the gunmetal, which is dark gray. Like this:
IRH Advanced Tech Helmet (ATH™) - Gun Metal: Charlotte's eCatalog

They also make them with silver, black and clear stripes.

Or they have the newer "Charles Owen" style:
IRH XR9 Riding Helmet - Dover Saddlery.

I have an IRH as well and I love it

I have Troxel (actually 2 different ones). IRH just doesn't fit my head. Do you have any tack stores around? Depending on head shape some helmets fit better then other, so it's a good idea to try first (and then you can find a better deal on the internet).

I agree with trying on helmets before you buy them. I have an IRH right now with the stripe (it's black on black) which I love but it's the wrong shape for my head so it gets uncomfortable after a while.

Right now I'm saving up for the CO JR8 which I've heard fits different head shapes than the IRH (it's like $135...so we'll see when I have that $$)
