I just purchased that hemet today and it's great. I was wearing a hot inexpensive helmet that I purchased about a year ago for $35.00 dollars. As they say, you get what you paid for. That helmet lacked vents and was a dark gray color.

The Giro I purchased is white which is the best color since it reflect sun much better than a dark one. Anyway. It felt cooler right from the start and the only thing I regret is that I didn't buy one sooner.

I have two. A white one for commuting and a red/white/blue one for weekend rides. I like them. Plenty of vents and the RocLoc3 system keeps the helmet securely on my head.
