Passenger Helmet Opinions
So I've been riding enough that i think i might be comfortable taking passengers soon, and while helmet shopping for myself was easy (well not really, but i was able to get something akin to my tastes) I'm not sure where to start for the invisible unknown passenger.
Notably the person who would be wearing this the most is my girlfriend. And I took her to the shop to try on helmets to see what she fit in (seemed to be a medium or large depending on brand and oval type). But she's likely not going to be the only passenger. And different people are going to have different sizes, head shapes, preferences, etc.
I've considered getting an open face for myself, and i'd just wear that when a passenger requires the full face.
So any ideas on what's good in the 'universal' department to have around in case i need to lug a person around?
For the record, I'm wearing a large Bell apex. It was the right fit (the only other one that felt like something i could wear for hours was a godawful expensive shoei . . . but the cheaper bell won me out not on cost but on the air filters around the jaw).
