I ride in one and love it. I enjoyed that they were a bit different than what everyone else had, but were still classy and polished. I am also an eventer. I first saw Sinead Haplin wear one, and then Joe Fargis.
I love the way it fits my head, as I always thought my CO looked really big. It's very light which is great for the Alabama heat. I definitely wish I could have paid that price for it. I think they may run a tad small, but that's just from my experience.
