Great helmet!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great helmet and would definitely recommend it! My husband and I both got this helmet (his in the army green and mine in a teal and purple combination that doesn't appear to be offered any more).

Overall, this helmet has been very comfortable for me. I am a beginner snow-boarder, so I crash a lot and this definitely contributes to my feeling of safety in crashing.

Con - The goggle strap is higher than I would have liked but, since I keep my goggles on my face most of the time anyways, it does a fine job.

Pros - I can fit a thin fleece beanie on underneath it to add to the already copious warmth and padding, which makes it all the more functional for me. My husband wears his without a hat and says it keeps his head plenty warm - I tend to run cold anyways.
-Also, the visor is helpful in keeping the snow and wind from out of my eyes.

I found this link...Columbia isn't listed in the longer pants brands, but I'm not sure if these are different. I have another pair of Columbia pants and they are a little long for me (I'm 5'5"), but I don't think they'd be long enough for my husband (he's 6'2")...Good luck!
