Struggling To Find The Right Helmet

    Hi Guys.

    I want to get my son a FAST-style helmet for crimbo - the type with the open ear area, not with the bulge over the ears (I think that's MICH?).

    Airsofteire seem to be the only place in ROI that have them in the tan colour he wants, but I gather they're a large helmet, so I'd be concerned it might look huge on him, even if the padding makes it fit OK.

    Where else might I look? I hope to find a medium size.


    Thanks,

    Mark

    They are all one size though

    Thanks 3102derek.

    How does it fit you? What size are you? Son is 5'10", slim, pretty sure he'd be a medium hat/helmet size. Does the helmet look big or oversized on you?

    Thanks again.

    Just spoke with Hobbyairsoft - they do have tan ones in stock and will have them online soon.

    Amazing coinkidink 3102derek - the first 4 digits in your username are the exact same as the last 4 digits in Hobbyairsoft's phone number... (que Twilight Zone music...)

    I'm 5'11, Fits perfect. I removed most of the padding inside, and it fits great. It doesnt look oversized and like a bowl so that's good.

    nice one of the numbers.......:cool:
