|RedRomo||I just saw someone wearing one of these helmets this weekend. I'd never seen one up close and I have to admit...I really liked it a lot. It didn't look like a power ranger helmet and it actually looked form fitting unlike most bobble-head fit helmets. I thought it was cool looking.|

Yeah, on balance they're not good protection (like a full-face helmet would be) and they aren't better than a cloth face protector. I do think they're a neat idea in principle, but it sounds like they have too many design niggles.
I just bought a Volcom jacket for this season that has a built-in face mask. Now that's a good design!

A better design would be if they used a system that you could just unclip one side and let it hang - kind of like a fighter pilot can do when he takes his mask off. Quick release system on one side and it stays attached on the other and hangs. Great idea for easily release when all you want to do is scratch you're nose or take a puff while on the lift. I dont like that you have to remove the whole thing to remove your goggles. When I sweat I get itchy and I like to scratch...... lol
but the helmet has me intrigued

This helmets look cool, I have to admin that.
But what worries me is what happens when you fall head first into powder ? If the snow block's the vents are you going to have a hard time breathing ?
I ask because this happened to me with my Giro Remedy, and the Remedy has more open area then this helmets.
If it's easy to release the face mask it's ok, but if not, it's dangerous.
What do you think ?

Used part of a boot lace to attach! Don't get me wrong, it takes a bit of Practice removing it using gloves!
I'm pretty confident with it now thou and having the teather saves the nightmare scenario
of dropping the mask into oblivion whilst on the lift!
