Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smith Women's Valence Gets a Full 10 Until now, I've always worn a competitor's ski and bike helmets. But, a few years ago, they quit making women specific helmets in size large. My only option was to buy a masculine looking "guy" helmet or look elsewhere. So, I looked elsewhere and was happily surprised. My new Smith Valence White Ombre helmet is WONDERFUL and it fits PERFECTLY! I normally wear a dark color to make my helmet appear smaller, but I fell in love with the feminine looking color detail on the White Ombre. I love the helmet and am afraid that Smith will follow the example set by another manufacturer and begin eliminating feminine looking helmets in size L. Rather, please use this situation to attract new women customers like me. As someone who skis upwards of 100 days a year, I'll be back real soon. Thank you for taking care of us ladies with "big heads!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit This is an AWESOME helmet. I have a smaller size head and was able to adjust this to fit perfectly. The brim is great on snowy days and helps keep the moisture away from your goggles. I have the IO/S goggles which work really well with the helmet. It also has a well thought out way to put the audio system in.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Matte finish I may be the first to make this mistake, but I was very disappointed when I opened my package containing this helmet to see that it was, in fact, shiny. When I had shopped online for different helmets I chose this one because it seemed to be the perfect style with a matte finish. However, only the bottom portion of the helmet is matte--the top is shiny. Not a huge deal, but beware when buying. Other than that, the helmet is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable I have never worn a helmet skiing before and was wary that it would not keep my head warm. I was wrong. This helmet is designed well for comfort and function. I did measure my head and try this helmet brand on in a local store before ordering online from REI to ensure it fit. I plan to try the Smith brand goggles next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet for people with hard to fit heads I have a (very) small head, and the adjustable feature worked really well to get the helmet snug enough. Comfortable enough to wear all day on the slopes, and keeps ears sufficiently warm in 10-20 degree F temps. I like the way it looks, but really, comfort was key for me. It fit the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit and comfort This will be my second Smith helmet and I love how it fits so well, snuggly but not too tight, and comfortable straps and ear cushions. I chose the black cherry and it is such a beautiful color! I have yet to go sking this year but next week you will find me rocking this Smith helmet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable, and no gaper-gap This helmet is warm and comfortable. It looks nice, and has very nice features. It is slightly heavier than my old Smith helmet, but is a better fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet! Only downside is the goggle strap on the back of the helmet. Needed my husband to help me get the goggles under the strap.
