    All I'm seeing is s m and l. L is evidently for 21 to 23" heads. I'm at 23.5, pushing closer to 24. I have been having a lot of difficulty finding helmets in my size. Anyone else have this issue and have any suggestions?

    Depending on head shape, the Re-Akt 95 in a large fits 22.6-24.6" head circumfrences....

    Related problem - it's not that my head is particularly long, but it is wide. My current Bauer size L fits fine lengthwise, but is really snug width-wise.

    Any suggestions for helmets that fit a little bit wider?

    I have as big of a head you can find (I'm 6'8 actually) and have tried almost every single helmet out there. From when I started playing in 2012, I've worn Bauer 9900 (2012-2017) and Bauer IMS 9.0 (2017-current).
