    I have a fairly large head; I can't wear most large sized hats or helmets.

    Regardless, I cannot imagine an adult wearing this helmet. My wife has a normal-sized melon, and it looks like a polyester yarmulke on her head. We gave this to a 9 year old child for a Christmas present, and it fit perfectly.

    Bought for the wife. It fits her head but not mine. So it does run on the small side.

    This is a very nice helmet but, it was advertised as "For Men and Women," it was in reality a child's helmet or for an adult with a tiny head. I had to send it back. However, STP has excellent customer service and they took care of it with a full refund! Also, keep in mind this was a Clearance item around 6/2016 so this review may not apply to future products in this make and model.

    I have small head and ordered a size 1. It fits very well but is at the upper end of the adjustment strap limit. For the vast majority of people I would think a size 2 would be better -especially if wearing an insulating layer underneath. I do not have any concerns about the weight and find the helmet to be comfortable and durable. This is an unbeatable value at the price point.

    So far, Petzl is still the best choice for climbing equipment. This helmet is light weight, not feather light, but the weight won't give you neck pain after hours of wearing it. Great ventilation. The harness could be adjust to fit just nice. I'm satisfied with this helmet.

    Elios is for men. Elia is for woman. The Elia is molded different in the back to accommodate a pony tail.

    It's a great comfortable lightweight helmet. Great for top impact protection.
