Hey guys I need some help. I have a cairns 1044 on the way and in the reviews in quite a few place i have read that it can be made "very comfortable" with some "minor adjustments" out of the box. Only thing is I havent read any thing that states the "minor adjustments". Its my first traditional helmet so I dont know exactly what adjustments can be made, I was wondering if anyone could help me in pointing out what adjustments to look out for, my current helmet was fairly comfortable from the day I  got it all I had to do was rachet it a little tighter or looser depending on the situation so I havent really looked into any other adjustments.


Thanks guys and gals!

All i have ever had to do was tighten the ratchet a little bit and it fit comfortably. If you did not orde the deluxe model i would recomend the leather head band. it makes the helmet alo more comfortable.

I won it but, yes it was the deluxe model, if I didnt win it id still be in that bicycle helmet looking deal they call a fire helmet lol
