great resort helmet
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion.
I have skied for 20+ years and am very particular when it comes to my gear. I have always fit into a medium or medium/large helmets, this helmet is no exception. For reference, my other inbounds helmet is the sweet protection trooper II mips. Both helmets are incredibly comfortable. This helmet has been used exclusively inbounds in colorado, ranging from single digits(Fahrenheit) to sunny days in the mid 30âs with a balaclava worn underneath(covid mask requirements). The helmet ventilated well in 30 degree weather and never felt cold on the single digit days. Like all of pocâs helmets, this appears to be well made! I donât make a habit of hitting my head so I cannot speak to the durability following a head strike. Iâll include a picture of the helmet for an idea of color and fit. I typically prefer more understated colors but the brighter colors seem to work well for friends/family finding you easily at the resort. The poc fornix spin is light enough that I wouldnât have a reservation taking it with me backcountry skiing although I would think its best application will be inbounds as I get fairly toasty on the skin track and will often use a black diamond vapor for these days.
