I have one just like this and it is in my opinion the most comfortable helmet I've owned for the price. FULLY vented, vision radious is excellent, cheek pads can be taken out to be cleaned, but would highly recmd a quick release chin strap. The Vega is def. worth the price for the quality.

Helmet Sizing Information.
To achieve proper helmet fitment, begin by finding your head circumference size using the method described below. Remember that the helmet sizing you choose should fit around the crown of your head comfortably with no pressure points. The cheekpads should fit firmly around your face. Once your chin strap is fastened, grab the chin bar of the helmet and move it side to side. Your cheeks should move with the helmet, which should not slide across your face. Different thickness cheekpads can be purchased to obtain the perfect fit.
Head Measurement Instructions.
Wrap flexible tape measure around your head approximately on inch above eyebrows and ears. Use this measurement (in either inches or centimeters) to find your helmet size in the chart below.

Bought the helmet for my wife who wasn't sure about if this was going to be a hobby she would join me on. It's lightweight, nice coating and mechanisms for visor, decent ventilation and unbeatable price and value. She loves it. For your basic rider, would be tough to beat.
I ordered two Vega Altura Helmets. One for me and one for my wife. After measuring our heads, we went with a small and a large. We both found them to be too tight. I sent both helmets back for a size exchange and received a Medium and an X-Large. After a few days of riding with this helmet, I can see why it is a popular item. I like it and recommend it both for the price and the quality. My only negative comment is the size chart and not the product. I think we measured correctly, so if I were to order another helmet, I will start with one that is a size up from what the chart measures my head at. The level of service from Jafarm is excellent and the size exchange was a quick, and easy, process.
Super fast shipping and item was just as it was advertised
I was replacing my old Vega Altura. The customer service was great. My order shipped on the same day that I placed the order and arrived two days later.
I recently purchased the VegaAltura helmet. My wife and I left the following day for the Blue Ridge Pkwy and Tail of the Dragon. I hads my doubts about such a reasonably priced helmet being comfortable for such a long trip. I was pleasantly surprised at how I was able to wear this helmet for 5 days and 1750 miles. this was my first time dealing with Jafrum, but it will not be my last. My order was delivered in a very timely manner as promised. I cannot find a single thing to say bad about this helmet.
I have had this helmet for about a year now, my head size is about 23 3/4 so I ordered a large and it fits pretty good. It gets a little loud at high speeds but its not too bad though. Venting is decent too. I only have 2 complaints with this helmet, the ear pads kind off hit me on the lower part of my ears and get a little sore, but that is after hours or riding though. My second complaint is the poor design of the visor latches on this helmet, not sure if all Vega helmets have this style latch type or just this model, but after a few times of switching the visors back and forth the spring in the latch starts bending sideways and popping out of a hole in the back of the latch that probably should me plugged after assembly. Its is a hole I think used to install the spring, I had to make a little piece of plastic and cut it to fit the slot in the back of the latch so the spring would stop popping out. Other than the visor latch problem its is not a bad helmet and would be nice if Vega would address this problem because I can't imagine that I am the only person this had happened to.
True to size fit and sooo very comfortable. Really like the clear visor enclosed but also bought the mirrored one as it does have a cool look to it. Nice light helmet that is real quality for a low price!
Exellent helmet, comfort and style on point.
i bought this helmit and it was love at first sight! very well styled. 5 ventilation system. sleek design! super comfort interior and at very reasonable price!
Great fitting helmet, fits every bit as good as 100+ HJC I have had in the past, only one spot in the middle of my forehead that it gave me a red spot on after I took it off, but I'm just getting it broke in though. I have a 23' oblong shaped head, you can tell this helmet is kind of designed in the middle to fit round and oblong shaped heads due to there is a tiny gap on either side of my forehead, I got a large and it fits pretty good and snug. Venting is good as well, only place I sweat is at cheek areas, but when it's 100 degrees out with a flat black helmet what can I expect. The face sheild is kind of tight at first but it loosens up after a while. When I first put it on it was a little noisy when you approached crusing speed but now that I am used to it it's not that bad. I really like this helmet, it's well worth the 70 bucks and I would definately reccomend this helmet to others.
The Same helmet at store was 50.00 more!! The quality is far beyond my expectations. It is the most comfortable helmet I ever bought. Thank Jafrum !
I like the Helmet ...
First, this is the only helmet that came in my size XXXXL, but I was glad that is was comfortable, affordable, and worth every cent. I wish they made a half helmet too.
Good quality. Fits like a glove.
i use this helmet every day since i bought it, it's a excellent helmet for the price, i don't think you can find better deal, fits fine and has this air vents that refresh your face every single time even in a hots days.
Great helmet for the price, little wind noise. In very cold weather (35) it does fog up at stop lights. I'm going to get my wife one
Just took this helmet for its first ride. I got this helmet to wear during cold and rainy weather, it was 40 degrees today, went for a short 80 mile ride, the helmet was great, fix was great, very little noise. It did fog up a little at stop lights, once I got moving it was great. For the price it can't be beat
Good quality helmet plenty of air holes so very little misting up of visor. The only reason that I haven't given five stars is because box states 5xl but the helmet in the box is only 4xl still fits ok so I kept it. Very good price and delivery was in time.
Comfortable full face at a great price. DOT, but I hope I don't have to get in an accident to prove its as good as more expensive full face. First time my ears were not pinched. Visor and chin strap work fine, as does air vents. I think it looks ok for a full face. They also make a 5x.
