Only complaint may not be avoidable for MIPS helmets, but you must know that this helmet is like skiing with an air conditioner on your head. I can be perfectly warm on the rest of my body, but due to the MIPS interface, there's no insulation AND there's an air gap around your entire head. Skied it a few warmish days in SLC then this week at big sky. It's topping at 15 mid mountain, and I am skiing around with an ice cream headache every run.
Fit is great, Smith googles obviously match perfectly, got some speakers and they are even better than I had expected. Chips 2.0 or something? When you put em in be sure to trim the foam so the driver is actually over the ear. Boa ratchet is great and even keeps it secure with my gopro max wagging around on my head like a teletubby. Chin strap clasp is awesome. I have the same on a fox dh bike helmet I got last year. There's a review saying it's difficult with gloves etc. To each his own, so I'll say it this way: if you hold the strap NEAR the other end, it automatically grabs the clasp. It simply doesn't get any better. I will never buy another helmet without this feature if I don't have to.
I'm going to have to glue some soft foam around the perimeter in order to seal out the drafts, but otherwise super happy with this helmet
