"This is a very nice and comfortable helmet. It has a fleece padded liner and the circumference is easily adjustable using the wheel in the back. It can be adjusted while wearing the helmet, which makes it easy to get the perfect fit."

"I bought this helmet for a four-day ski trip to Park City, Utah. It’s very comfortable, it fit as expected, and kept my head well insulated when I was at the top of the mountain. At lower elevations, where the temps were warmer, I liked having the vents. Highly recommend.”

Giro Seam ($80)

"This helmet is comfortable, easy to adjust, keeps me warm, and looks good. What else could I ask for? My only regret is going too conservative and choosing black. Everyone has black. It's hard to find your friends when they all look the same! I should've gotten a louder color such as orange, red, or royal blue."

"This is a great ski helmet. I thought I was going to have to pay a lot of money but this helmet fits great and is a third of the price of most. My ski goggles fit perfectly over it and it is very comfortable to wear."

"This helmet protected my noggin from a couple nasty falls its first day out on the mountain. I am very happy with my purchase. The straps are easy to adjust, it fits snug, and is warm to wear while riding in low temps."
