High quality brain-bucket
I have skiied for years without a helmet, but in recent seasons, I have noticed that a lot of people, many who are novice or intermediate skiiers but also experienced and older skiiers like myself, are wearing helmets. I took a gamble on this helmet, even though it had no reviews, because I had good experience with Pro-tec bike helmets in my wild teens. The Mercenary does not dissappoint, it is very light, comfortable, and warm, and there is a removable plug system for the vents. It is designed to absorb more than one impact and seems to be made of high quality materials. Another benefit is that it is different (well, as different as a black helmet can be) from the flood of Giro and Red helmets that have become ubiquitous on the slopes. The only downside to this product is it is not adjustable, but it seems to fit very true to size, I wear a 7 3/8 hat and the Large fits perfectly with no pressure points.
