We purchased this helmet for my 10 year old daughter who loves to snowboard but HATES to wear head protection. She was very happy she had this on when she fell on the slopes just as a skiier went by and hit her in the head with his ski. She said she felt the impact but thank goodness she was fully protected. The helmet fits well, keeps her ears warm and looks very slick with her goggles. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I found it for slightly less money at a local sporting goods store. Still, the customer service at DogFunk, the lifetime warranty and the super protection it provides my child is worth every penny.
