looking to pick up a new EXO-500/750 or a older EXO 700. but seems most local places only stock HJC. I dont like buying helmets online.

why dont u just pick up a phone and call around? that way you can confirm it YOURSELF while checking prices and maybe saving yourself some time and miles by finding a closer dealer.

Scorpions run small. I wear an xxl exo400 and an xl in everything else I tried on. Fits me perfect though.

The tighter the better. Just as long as it's not hurting your head but is smashing your cheaks it's the right size. They break in
