Yes sounds funny now, but not at the time. I've been talking to my wife for ages about coming riding with me and she finally agreed so we went down to a bike shop in Sydney so she could get helmet and jacket. Well of al the helmets the one that was most comfortable was an RJays Samurai so we asked for a new on in the box and she also got a sweet Shift Jacket. So I wrap them up and on Christmas day she opens them up again and tries on the helmet. All good and well, but then she tries to take it off and the thing won't come off. She tried for a bit and then started to panic and starting screaming "Get it off me get it off me!!!" like someone getting attacked by a dog. I say calm down I'll just undo the strap. But the strap can't be undone because due to the design of the helmet, the buckle does not hang down below the base of the helmet. The buckle is under the helmet with the side of her face pressing against it. So I try and get my hands in there and she is freaking out and eventually she grabs the strap from under her chin and wrenches the thing over her face and the strap slides up hard against her face leaving read marks. She passes me the helmet then starts crying and says she hates it. I calm her down and then try to show her how it works. I say, "look babe, I'll show you", so I undo the strap a bit, put the helmet on my head then tighten the strap. And after wearing and owning nearly 15 helmets, for the first time the thing is f*cking stuck AGAIN, this time on my head, and I'd done it up tight to show her it was OK. It can't be undone once again because the buckle with the strap going through it is under the helmet up near my ear and I cant get my fingers to it because the pressure of the helmet is holding the little buckle closed where the strap loops through it. And it won't pull down any further and soon I'm thinking of asking her for the scissors. Eventually after 2 mins of fiddling with it I manage to loosen it a small amount, enough to get it of my egg. So I can't take it back cause sales are final on helmets, but there is no way in hell my wife is going to put it on again. I've got half a mind of going back to the shop, telling them to put it on and then see if they can get it off, which they won't be able to. Does anyone else have one of these helmets, and is there some special trick to it? Does the buckle/strap loosen up over time? Anyway, merry bloody christmas.
