I have a Bern Watts helmet that I found to be too bulky. While on paper, the POC is heavier, it actually feels much lighter than the Bern once you put it on. The fit and finish and overall quality is a notch above my Bern. Great venting...almost too good. I've had to wear a beanie underneath on windy days at Stevens so as to avoid brain freeze. The sizes run slightly large, so I would suggest hobbling into the Evo store to try one on before buying it on the world wide web. The dual shell construction should work fantastically for when I run over slow moving skiers and beginners who have no business being up on the 7th Heaven chair, but for some reason, are there anyway.

This is my first helmet so I can't compare it to other similar helmets but the size medium/large fits me well. It looks great and fits perfectly with my Anon Tempest Goggles. The only downside to this product are that there's not a lot of padding by your ears, so on a colder day I need to wear my turtle fur over my head to keep my ears warm. The helmet also doesn't have adjustable vents on top to let out air on very warm days. Overall this helmet is great for the price and works well for most days skiing in northern California where the conditions are mild to warm.

        Purchased for 8 year old who is no fan of helmets but loves to ski. Bright purple color big hit, as was fully adjustable features. Easy to use AND easy to spot on the slopes as everyone tends to wear black. Should easily be able to wear two seasons--I HOPE!

                  Comments about POC Receptor Bug Adjustable 2.0 Helmet:

                  After 28 years of snowboarding, I thought it was time to join the modern times and get a helmet. Plus I've got three kids, so I need to set a good example.

                  I selected this helmet because it was rated well and I like the design of it (not too high tech or too much like a skate boarding helmet...its a nice in between design).

                  It's features are designed well and fits my fat head at the crown (always a challenge). My only concern is the gap around the ear areas. There is quite a bit of space here, even with the chin strap tightened, and I am concerned about how warm my ears are going to stay. This is my first helmet, so perhaps its just a matter of wearing a headband underneath to cover my ears if needed. The snow was gone when I bought the helmet, so I haven't put it to the test yet.

                  Overall, the look of the helmet was too nice to send it back based on my minor, unproven concerns. I am optimistic that this helmet will be a great asset on the icy slopes of the East Coast.

                  If you're a fussy cat about fit, my recommendation would be to try a few different brands on at a shop before buying online.

                      I teach at Breckenridge Ski & Ride School and ordered this because of the quality of POC helmets and because I wanted to bright green to make it easier for my students to identify me on the slopes. (Also because it matches my Lange ski boots!) The fit is not quite perfect for my head--the Smith Variant fits me better--but I do enjoy the fact that I have taken out the ear protectors and the helmet is still stylish.

The only downside to this product are that there's not a lot of padding by your ears, so on a colder day I need to wear my turtle fur over my head to keep my ears warm. The helmet also doesn't have adjustable vents on top to let out air on very warm days. Overall this helmet is great for the price and works well for most days skiing in northern California where the conditions are mild to warm.

                                    I like the helmet. Much better fit with my hood on then my old helmet. The air vents on top seem to collect snow and ice. Seems like it drips back in side the helmet sometimes.

                                          I love this helmet. The fact that the size is adjustable gave me confidence to buy it online before trying it on. It fits my large-sized head well and can be adjusted if I lend it to friends. POC helmets can take multiple hits without their structural integrity being compromised so it's more durable too.

                                            The helmet looks great. The m/l doesn't fit as well as the Large does for me but it still works great. The only thing I'd change is I wish the earpieces stayed in securely. They stay in while I ride but if you throw it a bag you may need to realign the earpieces a time or two.

                                              Your head is a valuable asset and most at risk when flying down the hill and through trees at high speeds. For that reason, and that reason alone, you should wear something that protects it. Wearing something that protects the noggin, is comfortable and looks good is an added bonus! This helmet is great and a step up from my previous protective device. The helmet is easily adjustable, breathes well, is easy to use with my goggles and provides that extra peace of mind I'm looking for on the hill.
