The lining of my Gath kayak helmet is non-absorbing. The lining in many dry sports helmets is made to absorb sweat.
I like the Gath Gedi because it fit my giant XXL noggin and you can close the ear holes which is nice punching out through big cold surf. The Sweet carbon ballcap style look nice and has a big sun visor and will fit through a small round hatch unlike my Gath.
Try on helmets with a thin mystery material or neoprene skull cap to make sure you have enough room.
