CCM Vector 08 Hockey Helmets
Comments: This helmet feels great, but runs a little large. I wear a 7 3/8 size hat, and the large is a little too big for me, even though I shrank it all the way down. (It's large in the front-back direction, so I glued an extra pad in in the back). I've also got a rather wide head, so I have to stretch it out horizontally, but it's a lot more comfortable than my previous helmet (Bauer 4500). Overall, I'm happy with it and it looks great.
Comments: Probably the most comfortable helmet I've worn. I love this thing. Really light weight and good air flow. The tool-less adjustment is a really nice feature to have as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great helmet.
Comments: One of my top two favorite helmets i've worn, this one was a christmas gift last year and i was very surprised how great it was.
The VN liner is amazing, and i was worried about the fit since i was told this one fits closer to the bauer 4500 which seems like you need to have a rectangular head for that helmet. But this one had no problem with my big head. It's actually wider than it seems which was great!!!
The helmet has no issues with riding forward or back like other helmets. I thought this helmet would fit like a painful vice grip like the V10 helmet is but that is not the story thankfully. I took a slap shot to this helmet and i was ok, no concussion issues the helmet did its job which was fantastic. My only issue is the helmet with a visor moves down a little, not enough to be alarming just a quarter inch forward so it sits lower on my brow, but i cannot complain.
The look of the helmet is great if you're into aesthetics and looks, plus its very protective. The side clips to expand it are a bit of a pain to click in but once they're done, NOTHING will get them up unless its you. With my Bauer helmets any impact and they came lose, which was alarming.
CCM did really good with this helmet. Protection, ventilation are both great and for the price, you cannot lose out!
