Helmet on head
I never wanted to wear a helmet when I started snowboarding because it just wasn't cool and it meant you sucked. I wear my helmet every time I go now because that whole idea where if your not ok with dying from not wearing a helmet your not cool. I have taken many crashes where I've been so glad to have a helmet on. It really is such a good looking helmet and there is pretty much no gapper gap. Buy whatever size fits your head normally with the liner in it and if you want to wear a beanie under instead, take out the liner and earpads and shred the mountain in style. I would highly highly recommend getting this helmet.
