I guess I am going to use my space helmet some since it's already paid for and return shipping would be like a third of the cost.

Online shopping for helmets is probably a bad idea now. Problem with that is finding a store that I can try some on. Only one I know of is Cycle Gear. They have their brand, and then like 2 other brands that are very expensive. Or that was the case last time I was there. I'm sure other locations could be different too.

I was looking for a new helmet a few years back and looked at flip front ones. All the ones I looked at fitted fine till I tried to shut the chin bar down and most of the makes would hit my chin before they locked shut. I even tried a Shoei and for the bar to lock it would have required my jaw to be broken.
We looked in all the local shops to us and found a make called Viper and they fit great, so the wife and I got a pair.
