What size cookie?? Can't Post

So I think I have decided on ordering a cookie MXV.. but I can't figure out what size to get. MY head measured 22.5 which is right in between the L and XL. I fit perfect in a XL Rawa. And right now I wear a L mindward. Any suggestions??? Thanks

Can you get somewhere to try one on (gear store? dealer? borrow one from another jumper?)? I've found that helmet sizing can vary across manufacturer and across helmet styles. I'm a member of the Freakishly Large Head club, and I comfortably wear an XL in Bonehead's open face helmets but need an XXL in full face. I haven't found any other manufacturers full face helmets that fit my head at all.

Since fit's going to be so critical for a camera helmet, you'll want to make sure to get it right and trying it on is probably the best way to tell whether that L will be perfectly snug or squeezing your brains out.

If you cannot try one in I would go with the XL. I bought a large M1 and was in the upper end of the scale. It fits well but is on the snug (but not at all uncomfortable) side. If you are right on the line I guess it would be better to go with XL to be safe. I only have the M1 and not the camera version but they are awesome helmets; low profile, warm and quiet. I had a mindwarp before and the cookie and, IMHO, the Cookie is much better. A.

I just got my cookie ROK. My melon is 57cm and I ordered a Large which has the range 56-58cm. It tight and snug now, but with use It'll loosen up and, I believe, become perfect. There's just enough room for a head over(Buff) for winter jumping. If you're hairy, Id go one size up =D

The helmet feels nice! Smile

Go for the large - they stretch/flex a little and if you're planning to jump camera, rather it a tiny bit snug than a tiny bit loose. Smile

I just received my XL Rok also.

My gourd measures 23.5 and the fit is very snug. At 22.5 you should have a perfect fit.
