    Q:

    I have a white version large helmet on backorder. Do you have any idea when it will be available? It was part of a group buy and I have not received any estimate as to when it will be fulfilled.
    thanks - Greg

        Comments about WRSI Current Helmet With Vents:

        Loving this helmet. It is light-weight and the vents are in a choice position. It has the hardshell toughness of the more expensive WRSI models but for far less $$$. Looks good too, has a quality gloss on it that (I'm thinking) will be resistent to scratches. Comes with ear pads and extra padding so you can customize to your fit. If your looking to upgrade over the (let's be honest) flimsy lower-priced helmets, I'd highly recommend.

            With the included pads it can comfortably fit a wide variety of head sizes. The 'small' will fit my six year old up to my teenager. No complaints of discomfort and they are happier to wear something that is designed for their size.

            Comments about WRSI Current Helmet With Vents:

            The video posted on NRS about how to customize the helmet is really good and almost necessary to watch before doing this on your own. With the video I was able to do the customization in about 45 minutes of trying the helmet on with different configurations.

                Comments about WRSI Current Helmet With Vents:

                I was at the top of the Small size so ordered up to Medium. I should have stayed with the Small as it took all the pads to make the Medium fit. The chin strap buckle is a bit uncomfortable where it is placed. Overall a good helmet.

                    Comments about WRSI Current Helmet With Vents:

                    If you are getting started in class II/III whitewater this is the helmet for you until you get a full face helmet.

                    If you are going to be a summertime only boater get the white helmet to reflect the sun and keep your brain cooler.

                    Be sure to properly fit/install the brace in the back/neck. This is what keeps the forehead from getting exposed after your initial hit.

                    This helmet has taken several hits for me.
