I can vouch for the Hackva. I have been wearing one for more than two years playing 1-2 games a week. I have never had more than a very slight ringing in my ears after getting hit in the mask and I have taken some bombs to the noggin for sure.
As for roller, I would think twice about using a low end itech or bauer. The puck may be lighter but I swear I got more stingers playing roller than I ever have playing ice. Besides, you get the occasional stick to the head and they feel the same whether they are on ice or not.
in the long run, 300 bucks is not a lot of money. Eat cheap for a few months, lay off the beer and save your money and you'll be able to get a good helmet that will last you a long, long time. And besides- if you decide that you don't like it, you can sell it on ebay and get most- if not all - of your money back.
