Keeps the cold out
Switched to this helmet after I put a dent in my last one. The brim is perfect for keeping out the brainfreeze on blizzard days. Love the easy vents and the higher cut on the back was made for your ponytail to not get squished.
Best helmet I've ever worn!
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If I have to wear a ski helmet, this is the one I prefer! Everything about this helmet is comfortable. It's not big and bulky and it's lightweight so my neck doesn't get tired with it on. The ear pads fit snugly against my face and keep my ears nice and warm. It fits great with my Smith I/Os goggles too. I also like how easily the vents open up when I need to cool off a bit. I highly recommend this helmet!

Love my Variant Brim! So sporty, comfy, and stilish. Fits great and is audio compatible. Love the brim, especially when it snows. Adjustable Fit kit helps it fit great on any head!
Love, love, love.
Looking to forgo the brain freeze on the slopes? Get a helmet w/ a brim and compatible goggles! Get the Smith I/OS goggles, love them, and the lenses swap out easily.
Smith Variant Brim Helmet - Women's in Bronze
Wanaka, NZ Heli
Just what I needed.
I bought this helmet in bronze for myself.
Sizing: I was exactly on the border between size S and M, and I opted to go with the small. It fits snugly, for sure, my only complaint is that it presses on one of my ears, which is mildly annoying (but not painful) at the end of the day (wearing it for 5+ hours straight). The ratchet at the back totally sucks the helmet onto your skull, this feature REALLY can't be beat.
Styling: looks GREAT on, fits with my Smith IOs goggles perfectly. Bronze color and earpads are cute. I definitely don't feel like a bobblehead.
Construction: Removable liner is great for washing, vents open as much or as little as I need, brim is nice and not too big.
I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the ear discomfort. However, I doubt I'd feel as secure in the next size up. I'm willing to live with it.

looking like just material. sorry for the confusion
Purchased for Girl Friend as a Gift
I bought this helmet for my girlfriend for Christmas. Because I wasn't sure how it would fit her, I ordered a couple helmets . The Variant Brim worked best for her. She also really liked the color and fuzzy ears. I like that it isn't too bulky, gets under her hood, and works very well with her goggles. She's worn it a few times this season in VT in moderate temperatures and thought it was really warm. I think she looks great in this helmet and I'm not just saying that because I have to.
Is the sizing on the women's version of...
Is the sizing on the women's version of the Variant Brim the same as the sizing on the men's?
Yes, they are the same dimensions. The men's version includes a size XL for larger heads
I bought this helmet because my boyfriend had one and it fit me perfectly. I was very disappointed to discover that with the fuzzy lining on the women's version, it's actually too small (and way too warm).
Bought this helmet for my 16 year old daughter. She loves the fit and style. It's very light weight, warm and the adjustable vents are super.
Can you hook up audio ear phones to this...
Can you hook up audio ear phones to this helmet?
Smith does theirs so that you have to buy different ear flaps or the one the audio-ready one that comes with the speakers from the get-go.
I ordered the blue version of this helmet...
I ordered the blue version of this helmet (which seems great), but it doesnt seem to have the super soft fabric on the ear pieces, just sort of regular cushioning... am I missing something or are the pictures kind of deceiving? Thanks!
I don't think the pictures are deceiving. The ear pieces are very comfy. After a full day because of their snug fit (at least on my ears), it's nice to take the helmet off for a bit of an ear breather though.
Jess, I think you're right. the images that Smith supplied retailers with were probably shot pre-production of the helmet with some color ways having the fur and other not having the fur. looks like the Bright Plum Alpenglow for sure has the furry detachable ear pads.
Great helmet, be careful with sizing
Stylish helmet -- my wife digs it. Works flawlessly with I/O goggles and looks as attractive as a helmet can look. But you may want to size up. If nothing else, if you're between sizes get the larger one. Otherwise, seems to be the perfect option for a ski helmet.
does this helmet work with wireless sound...
does this helmet work with wireless sound inserts?
It uses removable snapfit ear pieces, so the Skullcandy Bluetooth snapfit kit will work in it.
Smith Variant Brim with Cody Townsend (Men's Version)
Luxury Living in a Helmet
We took the mens Variant Brim and buffed it out with a super cush plush liner to make for a super comfortable fit for ladies. Now with the new Boa fit system, you can dial in the perfect fit every time you put it on. Great venting too!!
Does the front visor come off this...
Does the front visor come off this helmet?
No, the visor does not come off........the visor is what makes this helmet one of the most sought after helmets in the short history of helmet wearing.........for men or women.......this helmet looks great on anybody.......it is low profile, it does not make anybody look like they have a gigantic head, and keeps goggles right under the bomber brim for the no gaper look.....fits great with the adjustable boa system........a great "stylish" helmet.
if you're going to get a helmet front mount for your gopro.. don't get this helmet.
