Ordered it because I had an off-brand half helmet that made my head look like a mushroom. This one is not nearly as bad. Right on price, right on shipping. I'm very happy with it!

Helmet was as pictured, Size seemed to be a little on the tight size. Price was perfect.
I've been using a non approved dot beanie helmet for years but decided it was time I got something with a little more padding, but I didn't one that looked like a full helmet that had been cut down. I'm very satisfied with the fit and comfort, and look of the skid lid. Its the thinnest padding you can get in a dot helmet.
"I ordered the skid lid shorty and it was exactly as pictured and the shipping was right on."
"I recommend this helmet to my friends and family. Look good, fits good and DOT too."
"Best price I could find. Great fit, size was right on. Told some of my friends and now 3 more are on there way."
nice helmet doesn't give you that "space balls " look and no wind shake to blur your vision. Only problem was size chart makes no sense called for xxs but ordered a med from regular helmet large but a little big on me med was good fit go by what you normally get ignore size chart
Hair gell and helmet liners = crusty critters. Ordering a new one solely due to personal styling preferences. LOL Actually this is my third as I also have one with graphics for occasional use. Only issue I have is paint is thin and wears off easily riding in a saddlebag. Not a problem if it's on your head, but if carried as an extra or backup, best to slide it into a bag.
GOOD LOOKING STURDY AND A SAFETY HELMET.
I ordered this helmet on June 5th and received it on June 8th. The fit is good as I used the measuring chart. Haven't had a chance to ride with it yet to see how comfortable it is, but I have a feeling it will be great.
All my stuff arrived in 2 days! I followed helmet sizing advice and used chart. Used a tape to measure my head in the bathroom mirror. I ordered an XL to fit my 24 1/4" head. Fits snug as a bug. A little mushroomy, but padding necesary for DOT rating is gonna do that. Will be a nice minimal warm weather helmet. Great job Jafrum! I'll be back.
Sizing was right and I couldn't beat the price. Its still a mushroom helmet. I thought it would have been a little more low profile. Comfortable fit though the chin strap takes a little getting used to.
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. The fit is great and the price was awesome!
My husband did research and wanted this helmet for his birthday. He absolutely loves it. He comments how comfortable and light it is and fits great. It is also cool for our Florida climate. Great purchase and arrived quickly.
This helmet is the best thing the size is just right and you can't beat the price get you one or two you'll love it
Good helmet at a great price. Yes, it is DOT, and fairly slim, but still somewhat mushroom-looking. I ordered it in glossy black, but it came in flat black, not worth returning though, it's not that big of a deal.
Ordered this helmet Thursday evening and it came Saturday afternoon. I don't know how you guys ship so fast but I love it. This is a very nice helmet and fits my wife perfectly. Ordered a small and it's true to size. I have a flat black one as well but this one seems to be better. Will continue shopping with you guys for a long time.
Great fitting helmet, only comment I would add is that the outer overall size of the helmet is bigger than in the photo.
I am very pleased with my Skid Lid from Jafrum. The size chart listed on the site was accurate, the pricing was the best I found after surfing many sites and shipping was fast. I highly recommend doing business with this company!

When you measure for a helmet - what should be the position of the tape measure? Should it be around the head with it going around the middle of the forehead?
Best Answer:Circumference of your head. About an inch and a half above the forehead (where a helmet would sit) just above the hears, and include the crown of the head.
hello, does this helmet come with the Skid Lid Stickers already on the helmet or will they be in the box.?
Best Answer:Yes, the helmet comes with a Red Skid Lid sticker on the back of the helmet
How do select the right size of helmet?
Best Answer:You have to physically try on helmets. before any online purchase are made. In my case I knew I wore a medium because I tried on helmets in a few stores. Then, I went online and saved alot of money.
Size chart please?

How do know weather or not a helmet is an oval, intermediate or round? How do you order a different shape helmet?
Best Answer:Hard to say these days. Most manufacturers are Mid-Oval right now. Vega is long oval. Ball is round. The skid lid i believe is a mid oval
