I've tested the Giro Onset, Dragon APX, Electric EG2, Smith IOX, Smith IO, Anon M1 and Electric EG2.5. The Quiksilver Hubble has the most peripheral and overall vision for that matter, than all those mentioned.
I've tried on nearly all Pro-tec and RED helmets and this one is the best one overall. It's super light, has RECCO, BOA to dial in a custom fit and windshield technology which is supposed to eliminate cold air from hitting that gap between the top of your goggles and helmet.
I'm a size 7 1/4 in New Era fitted caps. I wanted my helmet to be versitle to be worn alone or with a balaclava and the medium fits perfectly! Wearing without the balaclava, I just turn the BOA dial a few clicks to get a custom fit.
The best helmet I've owned so far.
A Backcountry rep and Sessions customer service, Product Development dept. and Marketing dept. all said that these shorts are supposed to fit like compresson shorts...tight, body hugging fit.
I tried out two pairs of mediums and a small and none fit like compression shorts. The leg openings and body of the shorts are somewhat loose. The fit is true to size, so buy your normal size and disregard the sizing chart.
I couldn't even tell I was wearing padded shorts when I recently went to the mountain. I haven't crashed yet, so I can't say how well the pads protect one from injury.
Bottom line: Though I was expecting a compression short type of fit, these shorts are actually really comfortable and the padding is really low profile so you can't even tell you're wearing impact protection.
