Emerge MIPS Helmet
Giro's new freestyle-oriented Emerge MIPS Helmet utilizes MIPS Spherical to reduce rotational energy during certain impacts. Two layers of foam with different densities work to manage both high and low energy impacts by moving independently of each other when they are subjected to force. The helmet remains lightweight and low-profile, though, with a sleek design that fits under a hood, and is fully-featured for all-day comfort on the mountain. Giro's Stack Vent system lets moist air out to prevent your goggles from fogging, and vents on the top of the helmet ensure your don't overheat when you're working hard on the hill. Giro integrated its Strap Channel into the helmet to hold your goggle strap comfortably in place if you prefer to wear your goggle strap under your helmet, and also provided an external goggle retainer if you choose to wear the goggle strap on the outside.

Protect Your Noggin
I got this for my boyfriend for Christmas, and also because he was using a hat since I met him and not having brain injuries is pretty cool. Here is what he says about it and the rating he gave (take this with a grain of salt, boy's got a big head):
"When I first put it on I thought it might not be the right size but after fiddling around with it I got it to fit the way I wanted. The ear pads hurt my ears but I usually take them out and wear my goggles under my helmet anyways, and I’m sure they would break in a bit to be less painful after some use. The size adjustment system isn’t my favorite, just adding or removing extra padding instead of a dial, but luckily I didn’t need to adjust the size. Overall a good helmet if it fits your head, but not much room for adjustment. Perfect integration with giro goggles as well."
