I wanted something a little different from the typical white hard hats, I really had no idea these were out there, but luckily found a bunch of colors on Full Source. I really liked the looks of the matte black, and it's comfortable and easily adjustable.

The color is brighter than pictured (more of a fire red) which is what I wanted. Sharp looking hard hat!
