This is my first helmet and I love it. I really wanted a helmet that didn't look like a boy helmet and at the same time didn't look like a little girls helmet. This helmet fit the bill. I also love the plush lining. It is soft against your skin and helps keep your head warm. With all the vents closed I did get warm skinning up the hill and it was very easy to remove some of the vent covers before continuing onward. I would recommend this helmet to anyone who wants something more basic but with a few little extras.
