There are so many different brands of pads and helmets out there that it becomes very difficult to determine what size you should order. You may think that they should all be the same, they definitely vary a bit though. Also remember, that pads are never comfortable. If it feels comfortable when you try it on, it’s too big. The only good pads are the ones that stay where they are supposed to. When you first put on your pads, they should be very tight (not cutting off your circulation, just very uncomfortable. This will mean that when they break in over the next few weeks, they don’t end up being too big to protect you. For helmets, they don’t wear in like pads do, they still shouldn’t be super comfortable from the start though. You shouldn’t be able to move it easily when it’s strapped to your head correctly.
