Helemt size is different across companies, and even among models on the higher end. I wore an XL Arai Signet. After I dumped, I switched to an Arai Astral X and went down a size.

I'm about your hat size, and I wear a size large Arai Signet GTR. The helmet should be as tight as possible without have any "hot spots" or pressure points around your skull. I've heard that after helmets break in, they usually feel about a size larger. For example, if you tried on a brand new XL and it fit good, a large would be good for you after you broke it in. That was the case for me, at least

I would definitly go to a local shop and try a couple of helmets on to get a feel, other wise you might have to end up dealing w/the hassel of sending back a helmet that does not fit.
