Rated 5 out of 5 by griswald88 The Best Lid
Fit Easton provides 2 internal ways of adjusting the fit of the E700; the height of the occipital base pad can be adjusted in three levels (upper, mid, lower) and there is an arm mechanism that can be set for a more forward or rearward fit. I am coming from the Bauer family 5500, 7500, 9500, 9900 where the fit was snug, but it tended to pinch my temples a bit and I would have a dull pain just from wearing it. The E700 does not have any pain points and fits pretty nicely, although I have had some players have hard time finding a perfect fit (where the one size is a bit too large and the next smaller size is a bit too small). I would also say that these helmets run slightly larger than other models, especially Bauer. 9/10 Protection From the lightweight feel of the helmet, you would definitely think that protection would be an issue, but this is not the case. I have taken several hard hits and this helmet certainly does its job. Easton has done an excellent job in providing a lightweight helmet with top-level protection. 9/10 Weight The weight of this helmet is practically immeasurable; it is extremely light which is why I was saying its protection could be brought under question. The helmet feels great on your head and does not feel like it adds any drag weight to your head while playing. 10/10 Durability The helmet has been holding up great, of course you get the normal wear and tear marks on the outside, but otherwise no complaints. 10/10 Intangibles The black matte helmet looks very slick and was getting a lot of compliments on the ice. Wearing the E700 feels like youÕre wearing a hat instead of a helmet it is that comfortable. It is hands-down by far the most comfortable lid I have ever worn. The internal padding is so soft and does an excellent job at preventing sweat from dripping into your eyes. The padding can also be easily removed and washed, which is a nice touch. 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cach48 Enjoy the comfort!
I bought this helmet because of its overall style and quality. When compared to other helemets, this helmet is lightweight and very protective. It has the perfect combination.
Also, my dad really enjoys the protection this helmet offers (soon I will be entering a checking division.). Before I had an RBK helmet that fit really high on my head. I could never rely on that hemet proctecting me.
Without sacraficing any comfort this helmet has more proctection and is very comfortable.
I do recommend this helmet to all my friends.

We researched helmets for our 7 year old and were very impressed with this one. The concussion technology combined with the lightweight feeling really made us buy it. He said it was just like wearing his bike helmet and not bulky. The matte finish was "so cool" as well. Will definately buy an Easton next time he needs one.
