I bought this helmet after my first aff dive, best investment I could have made at that time. I now have a whopping total of 5 AFF jumps under my belt and I think this helmet has helped. I couldn't relax with the wind in my face but now I can't wait to get out of the plane. I can hear the radio through the helmet for landings. The only bad thing for me is that I have to put my glasses on after the canopy opens. Great helmet.
