by MyThreeSonsfromLightweight and WarmI was reluctant to start wearing a ski helmet but my husband and sons convinced me. I did take one good fall to the back of the head while wearing it and was really glad that I had it on. Compared to their helmets, mine is lightweight and has superior padding and insulation. The adjustable vents on the top and the speaker-ready ear protection are icing on the cake. The design is sleek and as attractive as I could ask for in a helmet.

by minibeastfromGood Quality, Reasonable PriceThis is the first snowboarding helmet I have owned, and I am very happy with it overall. It provides really good coverage (my head feels good and secure!) without taking away any of my peripheral vision. The primary reason I chose this model over others was for the open/close vents on the helmet. I really appreciate this feature as it provides plenty of ventilation when I need it, and just a quick flip to close the vents when it's snowing. The chin strap is a little difficult to adjust because of the removable sliding pad on it, especially with gloves on. Giro recommends their goggles with the helmet, but I have found that other goggles are compatible as well.

by DebbieBRASILfromGreat Helmet!The helmet was comfortable from the first day I wore it, and has stayed comfortable so far for the 12 days I have skied.
