I've heard that a helmet should be replaced after about 5 years. Does anyone know if that is measured from date of manufacture or when I take it out of the box? My helmet will be 5 in a couple of months but I only bought it 2 1/2 years ago.

The Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute has an article on when to replace your helmet:
