    Helmet size decision - Help needed

    Hi guys,

    I'm planning my Jango build for a while now and know what and where to buy for most of the parts.
    There are a lot of awesome builds on the forum. Great work guys. I hope I can do only half as good as you did.

    One of my last decisions I havn't taken is the helmet.

    As far as I've researched, there are two types (not makers) of helmet out there.
    The ILM casted version and the fan version made by BKBT and now provided by cruzer. Last one is a tad bigger, as you can see in this thread.

    As I neither want to look like a bobblehead, nor like shrinkhead, I'm asking you to help me.

    I'm 6'3" (192cm) tall and about 180-190 lbs (90-95kg).

    I've searched the forum, but found only about one guy with a size close to mine.
    Ribann, I hope you don't mind linking your thread here. Thanks for the pics!!!

    What I'd like you to do now is post pics of you Jango, together with your size and what helmet you own. The taller, the better.

    Thanks. I really appreciate it.

    With your size, I would suggest Cruzer. The cast that I sell would be way to small for you. Cruzer's helmet should fit you better.

    I agree with the rest on the Cruzer bucket for you. I had an Asok, and it just looked too small on me. It is an incredible helmet, and Asok is great to deal with, but the sizing was an issue for me.

    I am now trying to finish up my Cruzer lid, and I am always pleased with him and his work as well.

    Asok is great for people my size (Me, Seeker, Thrax) but for someone of your height, especially if you have broader shoulders, I would agree with a Cruzer bucket.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, it really helps.

    @Trout: How tall are you? Do you have a picture of you with the Asok or the Cruzer?

    Re: Helmet size decision - Help needed

    i'm six foot tall and i've had both helmets. i also have a pretty big cranium, so i can say that i'm much happier with the cruzer helmet since i'm not having my nose crushed in the helmet, and i've still got room in there for electronics.

    here's me wearing the asok helmet:


    and here's the cruzer:

    Yeah, the Cruzer looks better on you Saint... I think the rule of thumb was something like, it should (visually) sit about half way between your neck and shoulders with a regular tshirt on... so basically for most of us, it should be perpendicular with the edge of your traps and delts

    No, I dont have any pictures with either on. I am not finished with my suit yet

    I am 6'1", wear a 7 3/8" hat, and I have broad shoulders. Saint Nasty hit the nail on the head with the nose pushing on the visor part. That was my biggest issue.

    Thanks anyway Trout.
    I do have that nose problem in my TM Stromtrooper helmet, so I suppose it would be the same in the ILM helmet.

    Thanks guys, you really helped me.
