Easy to use and a great track record- plus the price keeps it in reach. Every skiier/rider needs one
After years and years of skiing without I finally broke down and bought a helmet. I guess after having a kid I decided I needed to be a good influence not to mention I don't think her mother would be happy if she had to put up with two of us drooling all the time.
I thought the fit was great, the vents didn't ever give me frozen head nor did I feel like I got overheated in there. I went with the compatible Smith goggles so the whole set up with nice and tight. There's a slick little headphone compartment on the ear covers that's a nice touch too.
I'd recommend this helmet to anyone, especially new dads who are taking too much heat from the wife!
I've been using this box for a few years now. I figure it has about 25K miles on it by now. From Florida to Washington and everywhere in between. I've crammed enough for a family of 3 plus my 2 70lb dogs toys and food. We put a lot of miles on the road with camping and road trips and this thing has never disappointed.
I have this on my Honda Element on factory aero bars and have really put it through some testing. It seems to perform great in windy conditions and I for sure don't take it easy on the gas pedal when we're on the highway. I think it's safe to say you can clamp it down and forget about it.
Some things that might be interesting: Skis up to 182 fit without any problem for me in addition to 3 other snowboards. I think 1 pair of skis and 3 snow boards are probably just about maxed out but I think another pair of skis could be fit if you are a Tetris rock star (which I am, of course)
I'm not incredibly tall, strong or clever and I seem to have no problem putting this on the top of my Elemen without any help, so if you're concerned about it being a pain in the butt to get on and off, it's definitely not.
