Also I need help with this one as well. This is great and fit but very tight on eye area even on eyes lids or pockets. I planning to put it the padding since it is my first cowl. I need to know which areas inside the cowl that will fit my face. Feedback is welcome. Photos below.

They're recasters and pretty much banned from here and everywhere that frowns upon that stuff.

Your best bet is to measure your head, ask questions about sizing before you purchase your next cowl, buy a cowl that fits and throw that crap where it belongs. The garbage.

Oh well I did measure my head and ask those questions dude. I thought a 24.5” head size would be big and have space but here we are! ‍♂️

Best thing I can tell you with cowls...

Measure your head and neck.

Keaton cowls have the most neck room, and most the time head room.

Kilmer cowls run tight necked and kinda small. Especially the ones sculpted by Dullam (90% of the Panther cowls out there, and 99% of the Sonar cowls). Yours is a modified Panther cowl that is an obvious copy of the HCG fiberglass cowl. A copy of a copy that's been modified and copied is smaller than it started.

If you plan to pad make sure you have extra room. Padding will not make a tight cowl roomier. It'll only make it clumpy and misshapen.

That's the best advice I can give you moving forward towards your next cowl.
