How Should a Snowmobile Helmet Fit?

A snowmobile helmet should fit snugly but it should not be “tight” and it should not cause you any discomfort to wear. Just as important as not being too tight, your helmet must also not be loose. A basic guide to a good fit includes the following considerations.

- You should have a clear sightline when looking in any direction
- You should feel the top pad of the helmet resting on your head firmly
- The helmets cheek pads should be gently pressing against your face
- There should be no gaps between the helmet pads and your brows/temples.

If a helmet is too tight, you’ll probably feel that it doesn’t fit either immediately or after wearing it for a short period of time. A too loose helmet will also wobble on your head and not fit snugly. Be sure to check that you have an optimal fit.

How to Measure Your Head for a Snowmobile Helmet

When you want to know how to measure a snowmobile helmet, we can help. If you are shopping in-store, you will likely be able to ask for assistance with measuring properly, but you may also wish to measure at home to buy online. Either way, the tips below will help you learn how to measure a snowmobile helmet for a proper fit.

What You Will Need - to measure you will need a fabric measuring tape or a piece of string and a standard tape measure.

Where you Should Measure – measure the circumference of your head ensuring that you start an inch above your eyebrows. It is best to have someone assist you with taking the measurement to ensure you are measuring evenly and accurately.

Compare Measurements to a Size Chart – once you have your head circumference you can compare your head size to the snowmobile helmet sizing chart provided by the manufacturer and learn how to size a snowmobile helmet based on your measurements.
