I probably should have gotten this sooner seeing how I'm probably not the expert skier that I think I am. First off this is probably the nicest looking helmet that's out there. Plenty of colors to go with your kit. The upgrades that they've made to the new version leave this lighter and give you more airflow options over the previous years Vantage. I always run pretty warm and end up sweating in whatever I'm wearing. I have yet to overheat in this. The BOA system is killer and will give you a snug fit even for the strangest head shapes. Also the earpads are removable and have a zippered pocket so you can drop some speakers. Bottom line this helmet is the way to go if you're looking for a comfortable, well ventilated lid.
