I bought both Giro Ledge and Smith Holt, and I chose the Ledge over Holt for the following reasons:
**My head measured at 60 cm but I’m a slim guy, and the Medium size from both models fit me very well, the Large size is significantly too large for me. **
1. Size: Ledge is overall slimmer than Holt, especially on the sides: the Holt is rounded on the sides while Ledge is almost a straight cut. Ledge is also smaller in height, and feels a bit lighter on head.
2. Quality: though cheaper than the Holt, the Ledge actually has better quality in details. When I pulled the ear pieces down in order to put on the helmet, one of the ear pieces on Holt became loose and can be easily pulled out just after a few try. Also, for the press-on strap on the inside for size adjustment, Ledge’s gives a positive and solid snap while Holt’s is harder to push in and out, no clear snap either.
3. Thinner ear piece. Ledge’s ear pieces are much thinner than Holt’s, making it easier to hear things and may feels cooler in warmer days. They are both comfortable though, just personal preference.
4. Goggle strap clip: The one on Holt is a larger unit with very solid construction, tighter than Ledge’s, but Ledge’s can hold the strap just fine and it’s easier to bend to pull the strap in and out.
However, I do think the Holt has a more stylish design. The Ledge looks kinda plain. Fitting wise, they both work out great, although the Ledge has a tighter fit in my opinion.
