You are mixing things up. A $30 helmet is not going to do the job no matter what it is. This is not about saving money. It is about choosing a helmet that is designed for the protection that is needed and doesn't add other problems (like unnecessary weight). That is a paddling helmet that fits, doesn't move around at all, and is designed to take repeated hits of the kinds that occur in paddling. You cannot get that for $30.
