I HATED my helmet from 15 years ago, but they have gotten so much lighter, warmer, and less obtrusive. I absolutely love my Smith Vantage and it is so light I can barely tell the difference between that and a thick beanie.

The trees in most glades in Maine are extremely close together, and you often get branches in the face when there is a lot of snow (plus I'm 6'3") so I love having a helmet so I can charge head first and not worry about it.

The one time I hit my head without a helmet on was enough to make me wear one constantly after that.
