I love this helmet especially because it comes in a wide range of sizes. The smallest size will fit my 8-year old daughter while I can wear the large. I love the fact that the helmet is cleanly designed without silly decoration. It's back to basics, performance and a clean aesthetic.

I'm still considering returning this helmet, not sure yet. It fits fine and the adjustability is great but it is kind of heavy and bulky. After trying on a couple of friend's helmets I think I might want something more lightweight. I do like the removable ear pads though.

        Comments about POC Receptor Bug Adjustable Helmet:

        The helmet was great this past weekend when it was -4 on the mountain. It may be a bit too much on a warmer day. But, it's adjustable so we'll see. The goggle clip is really a bad design. I'm an certain I will inadvertently lose it while removing my goggles one of these days.

              even at its largest opening for M/L 55-58cm, it is tight.
              squeeze your brain tight.
              fits like you never have to use a chinstrap
              like a second skin
              not like the other helmets, Smith, K2, Red, etc
              they feel like you have a second head

                          This is an excellent helmet. It looks very good and works well with most other equipment. Poc in general is a very good helmet company, although I do find that their sizing is weird, and the helmet does not work perfectly for my head. I have a wide head, and when I wear a hat under my helmet it squeezes the sides and it is a little uncomfortable. Other than that, it fits well.

                              I use a ski helmet every day of skiing, no matter the conditions. Safety is top priority but you also need comfort and ventilation. This POC helmet does just that. The technologies applied in this helmet design are truly state of the art for recreational skiing. It is lighter than any other helmet I have used. And, the "adjustable" model provides plenty of range for a proper fit. The only area that POC could have done better is the goggle clip on the rear of the helmet. It's a bit flimsy, especially considering how well the helmet is made in every other manner. To overcome this design issue, and keep the clip from falling out of the slot, use a little silicon before pressing it in. Yes, you have to actually "assemble" the clip to the helmet by pressing it in at the rear, between the shell and the EPS liner. With a little silicon it will stay in. Without, it slips out of the slot far too easily. A small price to pay for having one of the very best helmets on the market, in safety, comfort, and also one that is very stylish.
