Can someone ID this helmet?

I haven't been riding for over 10 years and my gear is no where to be found. I am just getting back to riding and would love to ride more often, and would want to first get a helmet. I am currently using the school one, and I love it.

I was wondering if anyone here can identify this helmet? I can ask the school or my trainer, but I won't be there for a few weeks.

Sorry, no help here. But to ease your mind about your gear going missing after 10 years.....don't worry about your old helmet, they deteriorate after 5 years and need replacing otherwise you might not have full protection.

Well, it is an LAS, but I think you can tell that by the picture itself. This is what I found out by doing some research on LAS helmets -

Naturally, LAS riding helmets meet every rigorous SEI and ASTM standard, which is why LAS Helmets is the official title sponsor of the United States Pony Club.

And from the looks of it, they can go for upwards of 100 bucks. I haven't seen one lower yet.

There are so many helmets now BUT they must carry the ASTM lable. If you haven't tried the dial adjustable, they are the cat's meow and do come in small, med and large. The helmets are also lighter in weight and better ventilated.
