This is nothing against Alpinestsrs but the hat manufacture they choose is cheap. The hat crown is a standard large size that was sewn onto a medium small flex fit band. So if you get the smaller flexfit hat and put it on, the crown of the hat looks giant and out of place. Flexfit products used to match the crown to the headband size. Now, one crown size fits all it seems like. Dont buy this if you have a small/medium fit.
