So what would some of you guys with more experience do...? I land slap in the middle of a Medium and Large helmet. It seems to be the same no matter what helmet I try (less an Arai I tried on today that was a absolutely perfect fitting Medium, but it is slightly out of budget, and had a few other features I didn't like). I've never minded a little snug of a helmet until I spent a week on my bike for 10-12 hours a day, and it really started to annoy. With my Variant I swapped the cheek pads out for smaller ones and that helped a lot. The Mediums usually fit me perfect in the skull cap, but are just a little tight on the cheeks/jaw. The Large seems to fit fine on the skull cap as well, but just a little loose. I don't think the large is so big that it would be a problem moving around, just question if it gives up a lot of the safety aspect. So do most of you inbetweeners go with a little tight, or a little loose?
