    I have a big head, and Troxels tend to fit me best - I don't care as much for the "old style" Troxels, with the more plastic/shiny exterior. . .they really felt like I had a bowl on my head. But now I have a Troxel Sierra and really like it. Lightweight, cool, looks good (I got the tan one - has a suede/leathery look on the exterior).

    The most important thing is to just go to a tack store, with staff who understand helmet-fitting, and let them help your husband find what will work best for him.

    Lol... he has come off a couple of times, its not like he comes off the horse all the time, its just when he does, he hits his head . Now me, I always landed on my butt , probably why I have back problems, but I rode some pretty psycho horses cause I thought they were fun !

    I just got a Tipperary Sportage 8500 and am very pleased with it. It comes with two pads for the back so you can fine tune the fit, and a helmet bag for storage. I like it because it has good ventilation, is low profile and sporty, and offers more protection down the back than the cheap schooling helmet I used to use.

    I also have the Tipperary Sportage. Wish it came in other colors when I got it but it fits me well and it is comfortable.

    I never ride without a helmet and a couple of years ago had a spook that ended up with the back of my helmet bashed in. The helmet saved my life. I lost 2 days of my memory and still do not know exactly what happened. I wear the Troxel Sierra and they have a cinch fit system and are very comfortable and wonderful quality. Ventilation is great. I live in Texas and spend many days riding in the heat and have not complaints about the helmet being too hot.You just have to try them on and see what you like. I

    That's what I have. Stays pretty cool. A lot cooler than my unvented polo helmet!

    But, I agree with everyone else -- He'll really have to try some on.
