I have skied for 30+ years without a helmet, but having bonked my head rather badly a couple of weeks ago and suffering the resultant whiplash, I thought the message was clear. I was told it would be silly to try to buy a helmet online without having tried several (or several hundred), but I wanted brown and no one seems to carry anything for women that isn't black, white, or pink. I took a chance based on the reviews. I ordered a medium accidentally - according to the measurement chart I needed a large - but it fits perfectly, so maybe this runs a tad large. It is warm, fits snugly, but comfortably, and doesn't turn me into a bobblehead...not sure why I resisted wearing one all these years. I have gotten compliments on the slight sparkle in the sunshine, and really could not be happier with this purchase, especially since it was the first and only helmet I tried. Might be a bit pricey compared to some, but hey, I never left the house and it was delivered to my door in time for the following ski weekend...how do you beat that?

This is my first helmet and I was more than pleased. It is lightweight and has a very soft, plush interior and chin strap. I hardly knew I was wearing the helmet. It was alot warmer than a hat. I'm glad I finally made the decision to wear a helmet after over 30 years of skiing without. This helmet did not disappoint.

Excellent helmet, warm, soft, and light weight. I decided on this one after quite a bit of research and I'm glad I did. Highly recommend it. We skied in temperates 5 below and my head stayed toasty warm. Goggles clip nicely on the back. My husband (an expert skier and gear afficionado) was impressed at how light it was and might even consider trading in his hat for better protection. I measured my head for size and found the medium fit perfectly with the inner adjustment band.

I love this helmet - it's cute, comfortable and warm. The vents are easy to adjust and I love the fuzzy chin strap. The adjustable sizing, once you figure it out, results in a great fit. I have an average size head and the medium fit perfectly with minimal adjusting. And, the ear flaps are removable, which is great for spring skiing days. Amazon had a great selection of colors and sizes, where most vendors only had black, white and brown!
