Is this year's version helmet compatible?

heart. As the review mentions below, the hood is compatible with some helmets and is considered to be a helmet compatible hood. Due to the myriad of helmets on the market it is really challenging to make a hood to fit them all. It would be absolutely worth trying the jacket with whatever helmet you decided to use as there is a very good chance that it will fit without a problem. Cheers!

Mountain Hardwear does not indicate that this jacket is helmet compatible. (They do specify helmet compatibility on many of their jackets.) I ordered it. It is clearly NOT designed to be helmet compatible. Of course, if you have a very small head and are wearing a very low profile climbing helmet, you might be able to squish into it. It is marketed as a ski jacket and it is not compatible with ski helmets.
