Great traditional, by far the lightest model that I tried on. Only downfall is when your looking down while in the crawling position, like in an attic space, but that is with any helmet larger than your head.

By far the best helmet for the money. You can spec these helmets out for exactly what you need and want, thanks to the MSA custom Matrix. I prefer the matte finish personally. A lot of people go for the brass eagle to hold their helmet leather, but I stuck with the stock brass with silk screen lettering. This is due to the fact that the eagle doesn't give, ex. my buddy's helmet fell from his locker (about a 5 ft. fall) and the eagle snapped the composite lid material. Other than that no other complaints. I feel this model offer much more than other brands such as Paul Conway or Bullard.
