This helmet liner is comfortable (especially if worn inside out to avoid the thick seams ... put soft side on your head), does not cover your ears/ear plugs, keeps the inside of your helmet clean & from smelling due to perspiration (i.e. throw it in the washer periodically), and can be used as a "yomika" when attending temple.

I did not like the helmet liner. It was not as was shown. In the photo it looked like it covers the entire head, but does not cover the ears. It's just a skull cap. I have gone back to the helmet sliks which, unfortunately, are no longer made. (Posted on 6/27/12)
For me this was a totally unusable item. Perhaps a personal issue. I could not wear it without getting a headache. The problem arose from the thick seams that run across the top of the liner and around the edge. (you do not see these in the picture). Pressure from these overly thick seams press on my skull and make it unusable for me.
Additionally I had ordered a large size yet it felt as if it should have been labeled SM/MD. It is not as large looking as the picture in the catalogue indicates. Just barley got it to cover the top of my head. It would not in any way be able to come down as low in the rear as the picture shows. I do not think the size issue was material to the headache issue. Would others find this problem? Don't know, that's why I said it may be a personal factor. Too bad, liked the material & heard the other offered liner was nylon so not as good for sweat absorbtion.
