I have only had one other helmet (forgot which one) during my 12 years of riding and I only wore it maybe 5 times because it was uncomfortable and heavy. After a nasty accident, I realized that I probably need a helmet and after some research, I decided to give this helmet a try. I am really glad I did. It is so light I barely know I have it on most of the time. In fact, it fell off one time I was coming off the lift because I forgot to strap it and didn't even notice until the end of the run when my girl asked me where my helmet went! Luckily the lift guy at the top had it and I didn't have to fork out another $100. I took off all the lining and it fits perfectly with a beanie and a goggle underneath. If you're thinking of getting a helmet (and you should), look no further!
