When you purchase your helmet, also purchase extra face shields. If you wait until it needs replacing, you may not find one that fits.

First, make sure you know your head shape and circumference. I am a medium long oval. Revzilla and a couple other sites list helmets by shape. I found a starter helmet that wasn't heavy and fit well by going to a couple local shops that carried brands recommended for my shape.

Remember the helmet should be tight when you first wear it. I wore mine for about two weeks about two hours a day around the house until it was broken in like new shoes.

HJC and ICON and Harley-Davidson are my favorite helmet brands in a full face.

I didn't see anyone else mention it, but besides fit being very important you must understand that the helmet will feel totally different during riding than when you are static or just walking around. The aerodynamics are also important. They will create some helmet "lift" at speed which takes some of the weight off your neck. Which aerodynamics work for you, depends on how you ride and what you ride.

Lightweight and comfort are critical for gals when buying a helmet. The physical size is also important as some brands only have two actual shell sizes and make up the difference with padding inside. Carbon fiber is cool, but not necessarily a big weight savings. Try a visit to Cycle Gear that probably has more helmets to try on than anyone. Helmet shells today made from polycarbonate are extremely strong and lightweight. Bell Helmets makes a very lightweight full face that is reasonable priced. The shape of the liner is critical to your own head shape. Sounds like you are on top of that. An approved quick-release chin strap is also a bonus to new helmet users. Good luck!
