Pump up for a personalized fit each day on the mountain.
You don the Salomon Women's Aura Custom Air Ski Helmet and spend the morning and afternoon bobbing down bump runs, carving long turns down wide-open bowls, and weaving in and out of tight trees. The integrated adjustable DocMeter air system gives you the chance to dial in the perfect fit, in the same manner DIN settings let you tweak your bindings. This system consists of an integrated air pump at the back of the helmet. The pump is attached to air bladders hidden beneath the helmet lining. Each time you put the Aura on, adjust the amount of air in the bladders for a head-hugging fit. When you're getting ready for bed, deflate the bladders so they are fresh and ready for the morning. Unlike static insulation, the dynamic air bladders ensure even pressure all over your head with the added benefit of super warm insulation.
Soft faux fur trim accents crank up the style as you crank down your boots, and removable ear pads allow your ears to enjoy the fresh air of spring skiing. Between the magnetic buckle and padded chinstrap, your chin will ski in chafe-free style all winter long. You wash your towels every two days, so it makes sense to wash your helmet liner just as much. Pop it out, throw it in the wash, and pop it right back in for a shower-fresh melon on and off the slopes.

Tried both the Smith Vantage and this one, but decided to keep the Aura. It keep my head warm when it was cold out and cool on the warmer days. The ear pads are great for windy conditions, and didn't have a problem with feeling the wind or cold. I used them with my Smith i/o goggles, which provided a streamline fit w/o any problems of air/snow/water seeping in or causing a fogging issue. The custom air system gives you a snug fit around your entire w/o giving you that head-pressure headache.
