The rest is up to the individual...
A+ to this post!

Close, sometimes when the conditions are bad, I wish I had more bubble wrap.

Ive never really worn a helmet, except when I was younger and thought those chrome helmets was so badass :P But anyway, to me it seems like wearing a helmet is very trendy thesedays, and your sort of an outsider if you dont. When your queing for the lift, and your the only guy without helmet, its sort of.... wierd? :P

Wife took a nasty fall off a medium kicker yesterday; left the launch heelside and of course the board went out in front of her, landed on her butt and whacked her head. Was fairly slushy conditions so no concussions/dizzyness but she still ended up with a headache for the rest of the afternoon.

And yet she *still* refuses to wear a helmet. Thinks it makes everyone think you are a pro that does backflips off 50ft jumps (mind you i wouldnt go out without my helmet and i am far from that level)

Anyone have any suggestions for a 'cute' helmet? Or something that is low profile/doesnt stand out too much?

From what I've seen, Bern makes the lowest-profile helmets in a variety of colors and styles. The lining is like a beanie and has soft fur around it (like wearing my Chihuahua on my head ). I think your wife would like that.

Just make sure it has EPS or is certified; a couple seasons ago Bern's lower-end helmet wasn't.

Lib Tech also has an insanely low-profile helmet that is certified. Right now I have a Giro Revolver. I put earphones in the audio pads though, because the Skull Candy one they make for it is crap.

I bet she would want to wear the helmet If you got her an audio-compatible one! Outdoor Technology is releasing a wireless helmet audio system this year in September- man I can't wait to get one of those!

No need for the insults.. It's not illegal to ride without a helmet. Do you just stand in the lift line scolding people for not wearing helmets? I think it's great that most people wear helmets but it's a personal choice and should remain that way. More people get ran over walking to work than hurt/killed while skiing/riding.

Gdog thanks for the suggestions; Will look at some of those offerings.

The audio thing i am not so sure on, neither of us ride with audio at the moment (hard enough to communicate out there as it is).

Was actually just going to get her one of those pads for the back of your head; but i am pretty sure she wont turn down a fairly low profile helmet if it came as a present

Bern Brighton Hard Hat - Women's | evo

That one seems to fit the 'cute' citeria, but doesnt seem to conform to safety standards (and it costs more than the ones that do )
