Comfortable for all day on the slopes

Spent a long weekend in Beaver Creek and Vail putting this to good use. Very comfortable for full days on the slopes. Good on a sunny warmer day and on the following day with snowy, windy conditions.

I initially paired it with a set of Giro Onset goggles. The combination fit well, though I eventually had problems with the Onsets and wound up replacing them with a pair of Smith I/O. In both cases, the helmet fit seamlessly with large sized goggles and were comfortable.

Sole minor complaint is the bungee cord retention piece on the back for the goggle straps. I found harder to adjust (without taking off the helmet) when attempting to get goggle straps to lay flat and correctly positioned. I think the snap button strap holder on others work better.
