Default Ruroc Helmet/goggle/mask system

Hey,

I was looking around at helmets online today and stumbled onto these, I dig the badass DarthVader look but don't see any info on a US dealer or distibutor...

Interesting stuff, but pretty much overkill for mostly everybody.

Mostly because bandanas and neoprene masks suck ass, I hate having things right up against my mouth. This has some space between the mask and your face for airflow but still keeps the wind off.

i actually think it looks pretty bad ass, but it would all depend on how comfortable it is.

yea, the comfort and fit was my other big question. I sent them an e-mail regarding US distributor info and got a reply that they have something in the works and hope to have them in stores by snowboarding season.

Also found a Youtube clip of a demo:

No doubt. I don't want anything on my face. Ever. That's what beards are for!
