Gear Review

4 5

First Impression;

Received mine promptly with the free 2-day shipping, which was very nice. It was packaged just like it would be at any store, though it rattled around a bit since there was no bubbles in the large shipping box.

Immediately seeing myself after putting it on I felt I looked like a bobblehead. I messed around with the padding, put on my Scott goggles, and thought it looked much better.

As of right now my absolute biggest complaint is that it scratches/gets dirty easily. While fumbling with the goggle clip I must have slid my nails across the back and my nailpolish left a little color that will not come off. But I guess it makes me look a little rough and tough. :P

Tomorrow morning I test it out on the hill and will leave a review of how it felt for me, as a not-hardcore-non-terrain-park boarder.

--Edit:

Went out this morning. It was fairly cold, probably about 28-30°... This helmet kept my head very warm, but not too warm! No beanie needed underneath. Scott goggles fit great and the clip held them there perfectly. I hardly noticed I was wearing a helmet/chin strap except for when the wind picked up on the lift -- it was really hard to hear what my buddy was saying, but I think that would be typical with any helmet.

I took a tumble when a skier cut in front of me a few times and we collided. My helmet kept my head from clanking against his skis, and I was glad I had it.

All in all, this helmet is my first one and I absolutely love it, especially for the price since I am on a limited budget.
