Rated5out of5byFunkdrummerfromKeep your noggin safeI bought one for myself and my girlfriend on our recent skiing trip. It was more cost effective to buy at the discounted price than to rent. I'll most likely use it once a year, and I think it's perfect for that. I'm a beginner, so I don't wear it for an entire season. It is quite adjustable in the chin strap, ear straps, and the rear tension dial. One of the ski reps told me this helmet is compatible with just about every brand of goggle. There is also adjustable fabric in the dome part that you can use to regulate the air flow through the vents. Our trip was cold, so leaving it blocking air flow (plus the ear covers) kept us warm without a beanie under the helmet.
The color of the helmet in reality is a shiny grey and not a flat grey like it looks in the photo. This didn't bother me, but maybe you'd like to know that.

Rated5out of5byBill the runnerfromGreat helmet, great price!I reluctantly needed to replace my favorite ten year-old helmet. I was pleased to find this at REI on a 20% off sale. It's stylish, comfortable and has an easily adjustable support system. It is also compatible with my Smith goggles so I didn't need to buy a new pair. I also like the lip over the goggles to keep the sun off my eyes. There is a vent in the lip to direct air away from the goggles to avoid fogging. I haven't worn it skiing yet but have no doubt it will perform well.

Rated4out of5bysleflerfromGenerally pretty goodThis is a great helmet--I really don't notice it once it's on. I only give it 4 stars since I wish it was more compatible with previous Giro headphone systems. I had to work a lot to get an older headphone system to fit right and with the expense of those things, I would prefer not to have to buy a new one every few years when I get a new helmet.

Rated4out of5byvinobearfromNice HelmetI'm old school but realized that I needed to get with the program and start wearing a helmet. I truly purchased this under duress. Having a family that doesn't ski I've been off the slopes for a few years. I was relieved to see that the majority now wear helmets. It was lightweight and more comfortable than my bike helmet but I noticed by the end of the day the ear cushions were starting to cause me discomfort. I tend to get the same thing with the big airline headphones so it could just be me. Otherwise it was a great transition.
