"A Lid that fits"


from Illinois, USA

Comments about Smith Variant Helmet:

Your mother will never have to yell at you again "dont forget to wear your hat when you go out"!! You will forget you have this helmet on. Its adjustable for great comfort and fit. Your goggles actually fit the helmet & your face. It is a little heavier than my former lid but after a day on your head you wont know the difference. As a Pro Patroller I have this helmet on 8+ hours a day and with the integrated speakers from "skull candy" Its a concert on snow!


My first helmet, glad it is this one!

      Comments about Smith Variant Helmet:

      This is my first helmet purchase, and it came highly recommended. I wore this in every condition imaginable, Warm bluebird day, to complete storm conditions, and I was happy at all times. In ONLY the coldest conditions, I wore a Mountain Hardwear 'butter beanie' underneath, and it was all I needed - otherwise I didn't wear anything underneath.

      This helmet combined with the IO/S is an unbeatable combination, the best!

      Comments about Smith Variant Helmet:

      I am a ski patroller so put a lot of wear and tear on my gear, and safety, comfort, and quality of all of my gear has to be top notch. The Smith helmet combined with my IO/S goggles with interchangable lenses is the best gear out there, period.
