Well you got some suggestions what to buy, so I just give you my thoughts on the CCM V4 helmet (I use one since 5 months).
It's not a top of the line bucket, so if you approach it that way, you will not be dissapointed. It's protective enough. I play in a checking league, I got a fair share of hits and slashes to the head / face and was never injured. It took me about 4-5 tries to adjust it but I am finally comfortable when wearing it.
I lost about 2-3 chin straps, and now use hocketape instead (patent pending lol). The snaps are a ***** to click in, and you're pushing your ear when you do. That sucks. A buddy of mine got the same helmet, and in his he had one of the cushion foams on the side not holding the screw which holds the cage / visor, so the screw spins around when trying to tighten. Might be just his bad luck, but do not expect top quality (the guy at
says the same about these screws).
Hope this helps.
