Bauer 4500 Hockey Helmet w/Cage - 2013
The Bauer 4500 Helmet has been one of the most popular helmets for over a decade, reaching back to the original Bauer 4000 model which was inspired by the Nike 0004 Helmet and Cooper HH3000. The 4500 has remained a staple in Bauer''s helmet line for three reasons - looks, price and protection. It truly is the quintessential helmet.
All of that being said, it has undergone several makeovers and various improvements have been made to the shell and padding over the years. The current Bauer 4500 Helmet has dual-density padding, which was not offered with the 4000 helmet. This feature alone makes the 4500 not only more protective, but more comfortable than previous versions. In addition, you'll find comfort padding on the lower portion of the removable ear pieces, a feature that really does improve the comfort of the helmet.
The fit has also been tinkered with along the way to accommodate a broader range of head shapes. The 4000 was very ovular and a bit too narrow for certain players who had a rounder, more spherical head shape. The new design is just slightly wider, though it is still a bit narrower than some helmets you'll find on the market. It also sits slightly lower on the crown, covering more of the forehead than the 4000 Helmet.
The 4500 Helmet is, of course, adjustable with the use of a phillips screwdriver. Simply loosen the screws above the vents and behind the ears and slide the shell pieces into the desired position before re-tightening the screws. Adding any cage or visor is quick and easy as well, with the removal of the two front screws on the forehead for cages and the side screws near the temple for visors. The cage/visor compatibility of the 4500 is as close to universal as any helmet you can find. Just about any visor or cage will fit on the 4500.
The 4500 Helmet Combo comes with the 4500 cage, one of the preferred cages among players of all ages. It's very lightweight, comes with a comfortable floating chin cup, and is designed with True Vision II bars for enhanced vision and protection.
Whether you're a beginner or a pro, the 4500 is fully-equipped for the job - and it passes the mirror test on just about every ugly mug on the rink.

Answer:The X-Small will work for him in the short term, but the Small would probably be a better choice because he'll likely grow out of the X-Small pretty quickly. Please see the sizing guide tab on the product page for additional sizing information.
