I've got lots of helmets: protecs, an old romer, some shred readies, voz, an unknown glass job, and also the brand you asked about. Mostly I use my cheap ace protec. I really like how it fits my head and the chin strap is easy to adjust. If I'm going to have a more challenging day (class IV+)I wear one of my shred ready helmets- a beefer plastic one usually. I definately feel like I have more protection with it, but for my class II and III runs I prefer the lightweight protec. It just fits my head better than all the rest and I can get it snug yet still be comfortable. Thirty years ago protecs were "the helmet" made for kayakers. People made their own glass helmets if they wanted something different. I boated parts of the nf payette in a protec but I wouldn't do that now. I'd want the protection the new models/companies provide.
