Need a cool helmet for use with my fatbike

I'm in the market for a good-looking helmet that I can use with my fatbike. I already have a lovely Kask Mojito that I use with my other bikes, but want something that 'looks the part' for a fatbike. My bike is an army green colour so something along the the lines of a muted military theme would be ideal - not too 'in your face' though. Good ventilation is a must as I'll be riding the tyres off my fatbike this summer!

Any suggestions are welcome!

That's a new one to me! Looks interesting.

In the end I went for the Smith Forefront MTB helmet (non-MIPS) in one of the camo colours (MT Disrupt Camo). It was closest to the style and colour that I wanted for my Cannondale Fat CAAD2 fatbike, and I got it at a 50% discount so that was the deciding factor.

Neat looking and lots of ventilation.

I like it as it fits my gigantic head! The ventilation is really good and it even has a built in GO-PRO attachment for lights or cameras. I have a hard time finding a helmet that fits me and this one is comfortable for me.

I wish I could find a high powered light to fit on the go pro mount though.

Thanks! I like it and it goes well with my fatbike. It's certainly no Kask Mojito in terms of quality but I don't ride aggressively so it doesn't matter so much. The ventilation is okay but I'll have to see how it fares in the hot summer months. It certainly stands out, with even more people pointing and commenting.

I personally own and like the Triple Eight helmet. To me it looks cool.
