Can I try on ski helmets in-store before purchasing to ensure proper fit?


I am in dire need of a new ski helmet and am wondering if we can try helmets on in store right now prior to purchase. I’d like to avoid buying one only to immediately have to return it if it doesn’t fit.

@jhconway2010 this is a great question, especially as we, and many other retailers, are running our businesses a bit differently than normal! Although some of our stores have unique restrictions, in the majority of our stores, yes, you will be allowed to try on ski helmets to ensure fit before purchasing; please don't hesitate to call your local REI store and verify their procedure before heading in. In contrast, we do require customers bring their own bike helmets prior to test riding a new bike. We hope this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
