Best combo of weight and comfort
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: medium
Not the lightest, but pretty darn good. Backcountry? Sure, why not. Unless you have to have the lightest, which means you will sacrifice comfort. Me, I'll carry a few extra helmet ounces to guarantee comfort and safety. Frontside skiing, you won't find a better helmet. A bit expensive. I was initially annoyed by the price, but after a few days of skiing the price tag evaporated, and I was grateful for a piece of high quality gear. Lots of chatter out there about how it runs small. Not really true if you know the actual circumference of your head in cm. I was on the cusp of S/M and sized up to medium and fits well. No helmet is perfect. Worth the money.
