Shred Slam Cap NoSeason

A lightweight, all-season helmet featuring the latest in safety technology. This helmet has the best fitting system I have ever worn. Warm when needed with excellent ventilation. I was lucky enough to score a Shred Slam Cap NoSeason helmet early in the ski season in order to give it a through testing. I had been hoping for some time to get the chance to check out a helmet that featured the latest in helmet safety. This multi-sport helmet is certified to meet the latest US and EU regulations for… Full review

Smith Men's Vantage Helmet

Best helmet on the market in my opinion! The Vantage was designed for hard-core skiers/riders; it features an amazing ventilation system, BOA on the fly adjustment system, and Koroyd aerocore construction which makes it one of the lightest snow helmets on the market. Testing I purchased this helmet at the beginning of the 2016-17 ski season and have now used it for 22 days of skiing in conditions that vary from extremely cold (-15 degrees) to temps just below freezing. On a couple of occasions I've… Full review

Giro Range MIPS

The Giro Range MIPS helmet is a great option for a skier focused on in-bounds resort skiing who occasionally hits the skin track. MIPS technology provides an extra layer of assurance while the Conform Fit technology provides for a customized fit. Overview:  I tested the Range MIPS helmet by Giro while skiing in Northern New Hampshire during the winter of 2015-2016. There was not a lot of snow in the backcountry, but the resorts were able to make enough for this skier to get some time on the hill. … Full review

Bern Baker

Great lid for multi sport use. It's been on the bike trails, the ski trails, and the river with me. Love, love, love this helmet!! I bought it new and had it as my snow sport helmet to begin, but it quickly became my XC mtn bike helmet as well. I even used it  in whitewater kayaking! One more con about the helmet is that my son has taken it from me and won't give it back. LOL Full review

Bern Baker

The Original Bern Visor Lid. Baker Hard hat used for all seasons mainly safety gear used for skiing and snowboarding. Designed for non-motorized action sports. Comes in many colors with visor. HAPPY TRAILS...It gets slippery out on those trails so use protection and wear a helmet! The shell or outer layer of the helmet, is a rigid surface and protects the head from sharp objects, knocks and abrasions. Works well with any goggles, the plastic handle lifts up and keeps the elastic on your goggles… Full review

Pro-tec Classic Snow Helmet

Simple and effective lid with understated utilitarian style. The Pro-tec Classic snow is pretty basic, but I like that. The version I've got has a matte finish, which makes it even more understated. There is a good range of great colours with contrasting chin strap. The design doesn't seem to change much each year which suggests it is pretty dialled. The vents work well to avoid overheating and the padded ear guards can be easily removed on warmer days. The goggle retainer strap at the back is well… Full review

Bern Macon

An economical skid lid with good fit and ventilation. Mount Saint Helens After watching me ski and reviewing our life insurance coverage my wife decided that I should wear a ski helmet. I dutifully forked out the green for a lid to protect her investment and have worn it whenever I ski.  The biggest issue I had with helmets is ventilation. They might have vents on the shell, but they never reach the lining; they are just for show. This one ventilates nicely and has a wicking liner to keep my melon… Full review

Giro Nine.9

An excellent helmet that has served me well in all weather conditions. It is light on the head, warm, and far more comfortable than a hat. Plus, it works well with many sets of goggles — no need to buy a special type! I was a bit reluctant to get a helmet for skiing, but it has been a few years with this one, and I'd not go back to a hat. For one, gone are the itchy heads of a hat. The helmet is warmer, feels lighter, and does not obstruct visibility at all. It works very well with my goggles. Full review

POC Receptor Bug Adjustable Helmet

Keeps your head safe, but seems to lack a few pieces that could make it better. Overall it's a solid helmet that does what it's designed to do, that being keep me safe. However it seems to lack the extras which could be expected from a helmet in its normal price range. The ear flaps don't sit snug on my ears and in order to get them even close I have to have the chin strap uncomfortably tight, this makes it so even on the warmest days I still have to wear a buff over my ears. That's the main drawback… Full review
