No doubt one of the best if not the best headgear for RIBs, nice to see them selling well, had one with me today in case storms hit again, great at speed

Bracing for the onslaught of abuse...

I've seen so many posts about not compromising on safety kit, irrespective of cost, but it seems the Gecko helmets became more popular with the OP's thread.

Ok, ok, I missed the boat and they have all gone (bah) but the dilema is this: Do I pay full price because I shouldn't be without one, or should I wait until some more seconds are available?

I've been umming & ahhing for a while. I've bought mine from a comfort perspective, not safety. The price was the clincher.
My advice would be to wait.
