We got this helmet for our daughter, for our skiing holiday. Unfortunately there is insufficient padding and no padding at the back of the plastic adjuster bands. You can see in the photo they are exposed. My daughter had a fall whilst with her ski instructor, what she didn't realise at the time is, that the fall somehow made the bare plastic slice through her ear. She ended up at the medical centre with 6 stitches.I have the photos of the injury and it's a clean slice through the cartilage of her ear. We intend to take the matter further.
In the end i purchased a far more expensive helmet in the resort, but fully padded. The plastic adjuster seems to have a lot movement up and down on this helmet which what the instructor and doctor think caused it. On more expensive helmets the adjuster has no up and down movement at all and a lot more solid.
Spend a little bit more money and buy a better helmet which is fully padded.
Bought this for my 6.5 yr and fits perfect. He use it for roller blading.
