Breaks easily when side-loaded in pack!!

This helmet slips back on my head easily. Also, I owned the model for 3 years and had 2 of them break from side loading, even though I was really careful when packing it. Honestly....it a HELMET....it shouldnt be so hard to protect it from breaking when its off your head. Helmets should be designed to be robust, not just when you are wearing them on the mountain, but on your way to the mountain as well. I haven't found a good replacement, but I am really disappointed this thing broke in the same way twice!! What's worse, is to discover it and wonder how long it has been broken.

I just had one break at the front left rivet and am guessing it was also side loading as I have had no impacts that would have caused it.

I agree with the breakage. I love this helmet, But mine broke on me very quickly. I sent it in for warranty and they( the east coast distributer) took two months to get a new one to me. that one broke within a week. SO i just lived with it being the poor dirt bagger I am. They need to either do full foam or just the top of the head to fix the breakage issue. because of this I won't be getting this helmet again. Does not live up to mammut reputation.
