These helmets are worth every penny. We rented them for our kids a couple of months ago when they took ski lessons at Mammoth Mtn. Helmets are required for lessons. They were $8 day to rent. 3 days for two girls. It adds up. So we decided to buy our kids helmets, mainly for the safety factor, but also the cost of renting. My wife also didn't like the girls renting a dirty, sweaty, LICE infested? helmet. So we went shopping for kids helmets, but could only find adult helmets at most stores. We realized the ones they rented, the Giro Ricochet, is one of the nicest helmets for comfort and design. They have a clip in the rear to hold the goggles. Padding and earpieces stay in place. It's not just a rebadged bike/skateboard helmet like many of them out there. The Giro Ricochet also comes in a wide selection of colors for kids.
I was happy to get them online once I knew what I wanted. This site had all the colors, sizes, brands and I paid no tax in CA. Plus, they were on sale last month. It was awesome timing. My girls got the colors they wanted, pink and snow/ice blue and we can easily pick them out of the crowds among all the silver rental helmets. They have paid for themselves the last two trips. I'm always up for a bargain.

This is an awesome headlamp for the price. I have owned several headlamps over the years. My first was a basic Coleman incandescent headlamp. Once you own a headlamp, you can't get along without it. I switched to LED Headlamps a couple of years ago with a Princeton Tec Aurora. I loved the amount of light and the battery life. It lasted 5 or 6 trips (1 yr) with regular usage. I got one for my daughters too. I started giving them as gifts and everyone loves them. I got the Tikka Plus this year for my brother-in-law at Christmas and saw it had more light than my Aurora so I bought one for myself. I love it. I like the recessed button on the Tikka Plus. It is easy to turn on. The Aurora is difficult until you figure it out. The four LEDs put out noticeably more light than the three LEDs of my Princeton Tec. Great for camping, hiking, reading and around the house. I use it for everything.
