    I am thinking of getting some money together to hopefully buy a Romeo 1. The only thing I am not sure of is how they fit. I have an x squared and a XX and I think they provide enough coverage. While looking at pictures of the romeo 1 I can't decide if they are to big or not. Can anyone help me by clarifying the size of the romeo 1? Possibly some pictures of the romeo 1 and a XX?

    No prob, I will post some up for you shortly. I would say if you fit an XX comfortably, you will be fine with an R1. If however you find an XX a little on the large side you may struggle. Either way I'd still buy one !!

    Bigger in which way? I like the height of the XX as mentioned. I think I have heard the romeo wrap more, to provide coverage on the side? I hope I can get the chance when I have some funds.

    I prefer the xx over romeo. Only reason I picked up a romeo is it was a Jordan

    Nice pick up. The only thing I don't really like on the xx is the light coming in on the sides, everything else is great.
