Fit was perfect. The head measurements provided by POC for the product size was right on. Very comfortable and lightweight. Opening/closing of the vents was as easy as removing/putting on a liner. The only drawback was the flimsy goggle clip provided. It would not securely hold your goggles unless you super glue it into the helmet. Not really an issue if you use goggles with silicone strips in the strap. If your goggles don't have it and you don't want to use the goggle clip, you could still secure the strap using those velcro coins that you can buy from the big box home improvment store. Perfect match for the Anon M1 goggles as there is no gap between the helmet and goggles.

This is stylish product however the simpliest of features is a complete joke. The goggle clip is pushed into place between the foam lining and shell of the helmet, a complete afterthought. Falls out all the time, I couldn't believe that this was how it was designed. After losing mine Day 1, I did a simple Google search and found that POC helmets in general or known for their bad clip design. Everyone used Glue, Velcro or Duct Tape to hold it in place. This type of poor design makes me concerned about what else might be lacking. Luckily I found a company that sells goggle clips for helmets that most POC users end up buying. Bottom line, the fit is good, looks good but add $20 to the price to make it work good.

      Comments about POC Receptor Bug Helmet:

      I have not gotten a chance to use this helmet much yet, but so far it seems comfortable, and it looks cool. I ski in minnesota mostly, some in the rockies. I got an XXL because it seems like other POC helmets run a little small and i take out the earpads and wear a hat and goggles under my helmet, and it fits great. So far it seems like a great helmet, i am excited to use it more this winter.

            POC helmet is stylish and comfortable. I was givin this as a gift in large which was too big but I use a beenie hat under and it fits great. I wish it had the adjustable head feature and headphones i could add but it still works great and the price was right.

                            I tried this on in the store and bought an XL, which surprised me. With pads it has a snug comfortable fit, or I can take out some padding and wear a balaklava. I do wish that it had a better clip for my goggles.
