Boyfriend loves it
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I bought this for my boyfriend who is an ok snowboarder. We tried it out at a local store and bought it on BC. This is an older version. The only difference I've noticed so far is the padding of the ear flaps - the latest one in store is mesh and a little harder while the older version has softer fleece-like material. It feels warmer but who cares! Actually I do that's why I use a Smith helmet : )
The ventilation is great, you can easily adjust how large you want the vents to be on top of the helmet. Some other brands I shall not name have really stuck clips that are very difficult to adjust on the go.
We took it on the slopes. At the end of the second day he found that the plastic strap of the fitting system was broken... He didn't fall hard at all... Has to be a defect and BC kindly accepted the return. What a pity...
