Ok, so as an experienced skier who has never worn a ski helmet I thought I should lead by example now my 2 children are on the slopes with us too, and I'm making them wear one!! I must admit, I'm the type that doesn't like bulky hats etc, especially not helmets, getting in the way when I'm skiing, and was worried that my head would get cold if I wasn't wearing a nice fluffy hat! I couldn't have been more wrong! After a very dubious trying on, I thought it was fine. Just back from the French Alps and I can hand on heart say this has been my best purchase! Head lovely and snug without overheating, with help from the adjustable vents. Ears nice and toastie and it looked pretty good too. Ive tried on other expensive brands and I would highly recommend this if its your first one and you dont want to spend a small fortune. It feels pretty robust, yet is light enough to be comfortable, all the velour lining comes out and can be machine washed. For the price paid on here I wouldnt dream of ever renting one and I'm pretty sure this will last me the rest of my skiing life. Postage was quick from Germany too, and very well packaged.
