I bought one of these in Switzerland last Saturday. Very comfortable, fits well, looks great and a superb ventilation system.
More importantly, I tested it to destruction on Wednesday in a fall that resulted in me being airlifted to hospital, where the medics seemed surprised I wasn't more badly hurt.
The helmet didn't survive, but I did, with only mild concussion from which I'm now recovering.
Excellent product - highly recommended.

Have used this helmet for several years now in conjunction with Smith I/OX Goggles. Smith helmet and goggles are designed to have the same curvature so the 'join' between them is minimal (with the slight brim on this helmet it is virtually eliminated).

In regards to the helmet itself. Comfortable fit and the BOA Fit System doesn't just tighten the back of the helmet (like many) it tightens a halo-type nylon (I think) line that runs through the inner lining part of the helmet. This results in a very close and comfortable fit, however, as a previous reviewer noted the BOA system uses a dial to tighten/loosen that can rub against the collar of a jacket and unintentionally loosen the helmet (not good). It hasn't been a major problem for me and just making some small adjustments after it's on has all but eliminated it.

The liner is removable though attached with velcro, don't just yank it out or you'll pull the velcro off the helmet interior. Again not a huge problem.

The vent system is good with the ability to open the front vents and rear vents independently of each other. Not the easiest thing to do accurately with ski gloves on but not impossible. The goggle strap isn't a popper but an elastic loop with a leather-like material tab that slips over a plastic hook, I has some misgivings about the plastic hook snapping but after multiple ski trips......and more falls than I like to admit.....its intact and never been a problem.

I've never used any audio system with this helmet and never intend to so I won't comment on it.

Is this helmet perfect? No, it isn't, but it is very good and so far has served me very well.

Very good fit, light, not too bulky, warm when it was cold and well ventilated for warmer conditions. My GoPro 4 stuck to it nicely, too, using the curved mount. Only (very minor) downside was that, with the vents open you occasionally get drips of water from ski-lift snow-melt coming through!

Ventilation good. Padding could be better for the price. Adjustable strap undoes every time you turn your head. Emailed Smith's for advice on instructions on locking it doesn't. Asked for instructions on fitting audio at same time nout.sending back.

Not actually used it yet - but the fit and finish seem spot on. Certainly worth looking at YouTube to get an idea on sizing before you buy.

Expensive compared to others of similar quality. Didn't fit well, even thoughit was of a larger size than the one I eventually bought (elsewhere). Can't criticise but can't recommend.
