I was debating this or the Bern Watts Hard Hat. I liked how some Smith helmets had a micro adjust, not sure if the Maze has it. I ended up getting the Bern for like $42
This is my first helmet and I love it. I've ridden in it all season so far and keep wondering why I didn't try one sooner. It kept me warmer than a hat and I was able to control the vent with a removable vent cover. I was feeling bad for the guys that didn't have a helmet. I've crashed a few times just washing out and it's different not hitting your head in a good way. I don't know how many times I've lost my hat and goggles up hill from a crash. I know I've gotten at least one concussion. Anyhow I think you should consider a helmet as much as snowboard boots as far as gear.
