Definitely get a helmet, it's not you but someone else that will cause you to go down hard and smash your head. Go to all the sports shops in your community; close your eyes and try on every helmet you possibly can. Then buy the one that feels the best on your head, irregardless of the colour or what your friends are wearing. Avoid vented helmets unless there's a mechanical vent closing device. I've wouldn't recommend the Giro Ten.Ten. I've been boarding 15 years, 35+ days per season.

The cloth vent covers on the inside of the helmet are useless when it's really cold, the cold air just blows through. In the early spring when there is melt water from the lifts dripping down on your helmet, the water goes through the cloth vent covers and you've got a wet head. Once you're at the top of the mountain you've either got ice in your hair if it's freezing on top or you get a really cold head as you blast down the mountain. I had the older style helmet Giro Nine.NIne before this one, it had a rubberized sheet that plugged all the vent holes. I never once removed that sheet in ten years of use. I wouldn't buy another helmet with vents in, you don't need the venting, it's just a gimmick. I board 35+ days each season. Other than the vent issue, the internal sizing system works well.
does this bib-pant have internal gaiters?
