LS2 mx 453 sizing

Does anyone know if LS2 makes different size shells? The UPS man dropped off my 2xl mx453 today. I was really excited about it until I put my head in it. Getting it back off was even more exciting! So I took all of the pads out of the helmet and inside the shell, on the hard foam was a little white sticker that has an S on it. Is the S the shell size?
Do these typically run small? Did I get a small shell with xl padding? I know I have a big head but this is ridiculous.
Also, the helmet has a manufacture date of April 2011. Not exactly fresh for a new product. I'm sure that's the distiributors problem though.
The helmet looks to be well made and has almost every feature I am looking for. Much lighter than the HJC modular I have been wearing also.
Thanks

Lots of info and good contact in this thread.........

I have worn one for a few months. Once on, it was pretty comfy. The problem was I couldn't get my temples past the cheek pads. After taking it on and off a dozen times the first day, my temples were bleeding....I sliced the material on the cheek pads and sliced off a half an inch of foam. I then glued them back together and have been happy ever since.I has loosened up a little from wearing it, or maybe I'm just used to it now. Mine is a XL which is what I typically wear.

Thanks for the link. I thried the thing on several times yesterday after I posted this and have decided that I am going to exchange it for a 3x afx39. I really like the features of the ls2 but I woke up with a small bruise on my left cheekbone this morning and it was really tight on the top of my forehead. I wish they made a 3-4xl as I like the weight and the features, plus it looks cool. All in all though my head is just too large for this helmet.

Too bad

What did you end up with? About the only one I have seen that is big head friendly is the afx 39. I just remembered I have a $250.00 amazon card that i haven't used so that could help pull an arai or schoei down into a reasonable price range. I saw Icon makes the variant in a 3xl. Has anyone tried it?
