I haven't taken any falls on this yet (expect an update soon...) so as of yet the helmet has only served an aesthetic purpose. But in that regard its been great, with more of a freeride look than some similar helmets.
I like the coverage in the back, as it seems to offer more protection than many other helmets.
I've worn two other Giro helmets skiing for several years, and I find that the fit is the same for the size M. The adjust-ability has worked out fine for me, and while the strap doesn't really offer much in terms of adjustment other than length, I've never found much need for additional adjustment anyways.
So far, I'm a fan.

I have these in the "dark khaki" color.
The diamond print is a bit more defined in person than it appears online - which is fine - just a little unclear from the photos.
They seem to fit true to size and the material is stretchier than I expected, which is nice since I'm sort of between sizes.
My only complaint is the chamois could probably stand to be a little better padded.
Other than that, as the title says, I like 'em.

They're inexpensive and they take off tires!
They seem to work better than the back of a spoon (this is probably to be expected), which is what I think I was using before.
They are a little thick, which can make getting tighter tires off a little tricky. Otherwise, I'm surprised by the build quality. So far I'm pleased.

It keeps my pants up.

I use this guy for skiing and it works nicely. It keeps my pants where they ought to be, but it provides a welcomed amount of give when I get bucked a little.
My only complaint is the excess belt is a bit unwieldy because of the material. I've trimmed it a bit and taped the rest down, which isn't terribly aesthetically pleasing but it gets the job done.

Let's be serious - these are not expensive sunglasses. They don't feel like expensive sunglasses and honestly, they don't look like expensive sunglasses.
But, they get the job done and they're great if you have a tendency to sit on/lose your shades as I do.
These are probably better for bigger faces with higher ears, if that makes any sense.

All that said, I'll probably buy another pair by I Ski - when I inevitably sit on this pair.
