Sorry this isn't an AIBU but I haven't had any response in The Tack Room.

After having a few riding falls where I always land on my head, I thought I should get a new hat.

I wanted a summer vented one without a fixed peek.

Currently wearing a 2.5 Champion Junior plus but after being re-fitted in the saddlers, it would appear that it is the wrong size.

I was there for TWO HOURS trying different hats and the only one that seemed to fit was the HS1. But it does not come with vents.

Does anyone have this hat? How does it compare to the Champion Junior that I currently have?

I will be getting a new hat but if there is not any difference weight wise or how hot I will get then I don't see the point in spending out for the HS1 and might has well get a correctly fitting Champion Plus again.

I have horses. I'm going to say this is way too niche too niche to hope for a reply. You're counting on someone being horsey, and having the exact TWO hats specific hats from hundreds on the market to give you a comparison .....and being registered on mumsnet. I'd post on a horse forum.

If the style you like doesn't fit it doesn't fit.

Best off having a sweaty head than a broken one.

why not just buy a new version of the hat you already have? BTW, I thought the advice was to replace a hat after a fall as they can be damaged and fail to provide futher protection - certainly the case for cycling or motorbike helmets?
