FD, the girl at the tack shop did tell me to order the CO's a little small because they do mold to fit your head after awhile so they'll be too large if you order them feeling perfectly at first!
And I called SmartPak about the IRH, they said it's not so much that it runs BIG but it runs WIDE...hmmm not sure about that. But they said they'd do free shipping for me if I want to try it out, I just have to pay return shipping if I don't end up wanting it. I think I'm going to go with the 7 that I wear in my IRH Olympian and then tuck my hair up in the XR9 to see how it fits. If it doesn't, then I have the GR8 on order to try out too. So one way or another I'm getting a new one (FINALLY, haven't bought a new helmet in about 4 years and this one's getting kinda stinky haha) ;)
