Why We Like The Vantage Helmet

We strap into Smith's Vantage Helmet to experience comfortable protection like never before. Its innovative Hybrid SL shell construction combines Smith's bombshell ABS material at the top of the helmet along with a flyweight In-Mold technology around the sides, so we get a great fit without sacrificing defense. Aerocore Technology covers our dome with four Koroyd inserts, which absorb a high level of energy on impact while allowing air to pass through. The AirEvac 2 Ventilation system provides constant airflow by moving cool air through external vents below the brim and pushing warm air out of the 21 vents across the top of your helmet. If we get too cold, the vents close with a dual-regulating switch at the top of the helmet that's easy to adjust even with gloves on.


  • Sleek and stylish snow helmet with elevated defense and comfort
  • Hybrid SL shell delivers lightweight, stylish protection
  • Aerocore construction helps absorb forces upon impact
  • Boa dial system helps you achieve a personalized fit
  • Adjustable ventilation helps you find the perfect comfort level

  • Detachable goggle lock keeps you and your goggle from parting ways
  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit

Smith Vantage helmet runs small

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:

Had to return a medium because it was too small despite ordering per size guide. Had the same thing happen with Smith Nexus helmet. Yet my Smith mtn bike helmet fits fine in a medium using same sizing chart. I'm giving Smith 1 star here because getting sizing right is critical and they have obviously messed this up with ski helmets.

Remove the ear pads

Very nice helmet. I have a more oval shaped head, and the XL fit kinda snug. Just room for a thin balaclava, so it really wasn't really warm enough below about 15 degrees F. I skied with this all season and finally, this spring I removed the ear pads for a warm day, and WOW, the whole helmet fit way better and there's now room for a much thicker balaclava! The problem is the connecting piece of fabric along the back of the neck that holds the ear pads together. It's made out of 2 or more layers of very thick foam-backed fabric. It takes up a lot of room, and really screws up the fit of the whole helmet for me. Next stop: I will cut up the ear pieces so they are just two separate ear pads. Not the most elegant solution, but I see now that it is absolutely necessary. SMITH needs to sell different ear pads - some with just a thin piece of fabric connecting the ear pads. I took one star off just for that, it screws up my fit so much.

Don’t waste your time and money on Vantage helmets which are not properly designed. Tha helmet had a set of rubber band bungees in the back the are supposed to hold your goggles strap in place. The problem is that after a short time that rubber bungee stretches out. Recently, I lost a pair of Oakley goggles that way. Luckily, someone was kind enough to turn them in to lost and found.

Super comfortable helmet

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 2"

This helmet adjusts to fit perfectly and is really comfortable and warm. Vents work great and I love the flexibility of the dual vent system. Obviously a quality helmet compared to the others I tried on

Great ski helmet fits perfectly

Great ski helmet fits perfectly based on the measurement of my head. I tried other brand ski goggles with it but they didn’t fit that well so I purchased Smith OTG goggles and I’m set to go. Very happy and ordering online was easy and they were delivered on time.

Fits great with adjustment wheel.

Fits great with adjustment wheel. Comfortable. Nylon wire sometimes causes pain on ear. Should be able to fix with tape. Lower section of helmet changed color/faded and no longer matches top.

overall, a good helmet. used

overall, a good helmet. used it 3 times this ski season. good fit, insulation, and ventilation. though I do not like the goggle retention. I would rather have something a bit better than a simple bungy. also, it can be a little hard to feel the ventilation tabs when wearing gloves/mittens.
