I get this is a novelty helmet and not intended for use as protective riding gear but for the cost, I would expect a little higher quality. It looks great but the buckle slips too easy and the strap is uncomfortable. I've purchased other novelty helmets that I didn't have to worry about the strap loosening. I am not sure any claim of "extra strong" is an accurate statement. Considering the length of time it took to receive it, I'm just chalking this purchase up to a lose.
