Used this for the first time during a snowboarding trip to Morzine in February. Does the job intended, very comfortable fit and the ear muff part is handy - can be removed also which I liked. Size-wise I though it was a little on the large size (even though correct size for my head) but I didn't mind too much as it was safety and comfort I was after.
Has vents on top also but never needed to bother with them.
Would defo reccomend as it seems like it will last a good while (hopefully it doesn't get tested to it's maximum!)

I've just bought this helmet to update my well used Dianese lid. Having tried a huge number of helmets at a number of stores I settled on the fact that the only really comfortable helmets were made by Giro - the liners were well padded and the adjustment system discreet and comfortable unlike some rear wheel adjusted helmets. However these higher end helmets come with a rrp of circa £90 minimum. Therefore I returned home to look online for discounts, starting with the G9 model. The best deal found was for the white G10 at just under £50 vs rrp £120 via Outdoor Action. Bargain bagged very quickly I received my helmet in a few days, and what a fab helmet it is - super comfortable, very lightweight, quality ear pads and overall quality feel. I was so impressed I went back and bought a couple more for the family! A great spec quality helmet found at a knockdown price if you are not so worried about having a white one vs latest model black or red....

Despite reading that it is at least last season's design (perhaps older), this is still a very good helmet. I used it for two weeks this year and had no problems. Fit was excellent (large size) and the quality is very good. Well ventilated and easy to adjust the vents while while wearing the helmet and ski gloves. The helmet is light yet secure, better than my last lid which was not nearly so comfy. The padded ear sections are removable and can accomodate ear phones-not that I would ever consider using them as I am of that vintage who think that you should have all your senses in play while you are ski-ing to alert you to any possible problems.For £50 this was a steal. I would have given 5 stars, but the padded section of the chin strap is sown on to the webbing section of the strap at one end. This means that the padded section canmnot slide along the strap and sits slightly to the side of my chin, not exactly underneath it. That said, there was no compromise in the comfort of the helmet, I just thought it a bit of a design fault. Delivery was excellent and on time.

Bought this helmet to replace my old helmet purchased in States some years ago and showing signs of wear. The Giro G10 is a much superior fit and very comfortable. No gap between goggles helmet and excellent ventilation. The colour is matt white, The "exploded argyle" design is a very faint design on one side of the helmet, almost invisible and a total waste of space! Just call it matt white. All in, an excellent hemet.
