wish it was adjustable

Both the Giro and Smith helmets have small holes in the base of the neck that let air in on really cold windy days. When you're sitting on a chairlift, and the wind is blowing from behind, it can make your head cold. On these days, I use a baklava or something underneath. This can be a problem with the smith helmet since it is not adjustable, like the gyro is. Also, the Smith's seem to fit a little small. The large in the Smith fit very snug and there was no room for layering underneath. I had to have XL and that was almost too loose. The quality seems comparable between both. But the gyro allows me to adjust to changing conditions. Smith should make their helmets adjustable

why would you use a baklava (Greek pastry) to keep your noggin warm??

Cause it goes so well with that delicious gyro he keeps talking about?
