    What helmet will fit my giant head.

    Im not as cool as I think I am and should really be wearing a helmet when I ski. I just have trouble finding one that fits my big head. I find most ski shops just have a few brands and they never fit or they dont have xl or bigger to try on.Any large headed brother or sister that could point me in a good direction?

    Smith Variant for me, don't remember size offhand. Big though.

    Giro 9 FTW. The recent XL version fits my 7-7/8 dome. Been my goto helmet since 2002 though several iterations of their design, but IIRC those were XXL's. I think my current helmet has their MIPS adjustment system and it's just about maxed.

    Giant head over here.

    Smith Mission XL fits great. The MIPS version did not.

    Giro L or XL should fit even the biggest head, but good luck with hood compatibility. Im now running a Pret and like it, has a lower profile.

    I ordered a pro-tec size medium helmet this winter because it was time to replace my helmet, and i had to return it because it was too big for my head. I'm pretty medium for everything and previous helmet (not pro-tec) was medium and fit fine. I even measured my noggin and it seemed to me that it would fit based on the pro-tec sizing guide but it was still too big. So maybe pro-tec makes helmets for big heads?? Went with a POC size medium and that fits perfectly.

    I think I have an XXL Giro Nine somewhere. And a Smith Maze and Holt in XL.
    And for reference, I can wear a SnapBack hat unsnapped.
