    If you want to try it on, I would suggest contacting your local motorcycle dealers or motorcycle accessories stores near you to see if they have it.

    Good luck with that.
    I am looking to purchase the same helmet myself and no one has it in stock anywhere near me.
    Even checked "The Helmet Shop" in Daytona and no bueno.
    If I was not going to be at sea during Dayton Bike Week, Simpson may have a booth there and would have this helmet on display for sure.

    I wear a 4xl in the HJC modular and they only list the Mod Bandit to a 2XL........so I am going to order it online directly from Simpson and hope they run big.

    Now just have to decide between gloss black or carbon fiber......Hmm.....first world problems are tough.

    LOL....man I would appreciate that before I drop $650 to buy one outfitted the way I want it.

    Have done my homework on this helmet over the past few months and its a lot of $$ for what it is.

    Overall the reviews are very good.

    Its lightweight, very functional, has good air flow and they say fits a long oval head better than a round oval head (which is good for me because I have a huge alien shaped melon)
    Not to mention that Simpson has a look like no other. (Aggressively Bad A$$)

    A couple con's I found though are......

    1) The mod bandit although labeled and sold as Simpson (Due to the patented design shape I would guess) but is actually made in Italy by a company called Vemar and not Made in the USA like the rest of the Simpson line up.

    2) It has large pocket openings near the ears for easy speaker placement and for comfort to keep from folding your ears over when putting the helmet on.
    But some say this larger opening contributes to the helmet being a bit noisier inside compared to other quality helmets in its price range.

    Not going to let that stop me from giving it a go though.
    I like the look and if the XL will actually fit my head I will consider it a good score.
    The HJC helmet I am wearing now is not extremely quiet either, so if the Mod Bandit is equal or quieter than the HJC I am good with that.

    Going to order about a week before I get off this ship so its waiting for me when I get back to the lower 48.

    So just in case you are interested......

    I wrote Simpson to ask about their return policy should the helmet not fit, since there were no dealers near me where I could try the helmet on before I purchased.

    Here is their response,

    Good Afternoon,
    As long as the helmet has not been worn for use and is returned with in 30 days of purchase, you can send the helmet back for a refund. There is not a restocking fee, but you will be responsible for the return freight. If you order the original helmet on line then you will also get the free shipping to you.
    This would apply when ordering directly from Simpson of course.

    Thats good to know :)

    But I found a place not to far from me about 4 1/2 hour drive in Toronto just waiting from them to see what they receive :)

    This is from
    corsamotocicletta.ca


    Hi John!

    Thanks so much for contacting us from Montreal!

    We do have that one coming. We received our first spring shipment from Simpson last week and we’re hoping the next comes in soon. The mod in large is on that shipment. I think I have one of the carbon mods on that shipment too. I’ll contact Simpson on Monday and find out how soon we are to expect the next shipment and let you know.
    Thanks!!
    Mike

    Well, Corona Virus prepping for the family has eaten up all my helmet money......and then some.

    Guess I will keep wearing my HJC for a bit longer.

    And once more......First World Problems are Real.

    Stay safe out there.
