I like this helmet, fit me well and really kept me warm. Anything and everything is personal preference, but I liked this helmet because of the snug fit and the ear warmers did not irritate my ears after hours of wear. This is probably one of the most comfortable helmets I have ever owned. The venting system is incredibly simple to adjust and really works well. I notice a difference within minutes. I have not taken any spills in it but I have heard it protects from TBI and that is the most important factor. This helmet worked for me, I hope I have it for many seasons to come. I wear it ice climbing, winter mountaineering, ski mountaineering and any backcountry skiing.
