Hey looking for advice from you guys.
My head measures 22 and 3/4". Ops core sizing chart has me in a size large...but:
- I currently have an ops core bump in the old sizing in a L/XL which fits great, and it has enough room that I can wear a pair of comtac iiis under the helmet (after adjusting the pads of course).
- I also have a MSA ACH size large with the ops core occ dial upgrade in large.... it fits but i am ALL the way out on the chinstrap adjustments and almost all the way put on the dial...and thats using the thinner pads and none on the side, with comtacs underneath its very tight and not great for wearing more then a short time.
- Also I live in Ohio... so several months out of the year it is nice to wear an extra layer on the head due to cold.
All this makes me think I need to size up to the extra large.... guys with experiance with the newer ops core sizing, what say you?
found this on TNVC
Ops-Core Sizing Guide:
S/M (Old) = Medium
M/L (Old) = Large
L/XL (Old) = X-Large
makes me again think XL.
Anyone know if you order from ops core direct and it doesnt fit, are you able to swap out for a differnt size?
What was really confusing me is...the sticker in my L/XL fast bump helmet even says "fits 56-59cm" which converts to 22-23 1/8 inches... which corresponds to what they now call a size large.... that is what was tripping me up and making me second guess myself...also prob what tripped a lot of people up as you said
