bodero Considering either the Maze or the Bern Watts. Thinking the Maze as it sounds like it will be lighter.

Does the Maze work well the VZ Feenom goggles?

time to throw it out and buy a new one if you haven't already...

MikeCL That's no big deal about the clip, I should be getting mine on Thursday.

paul I have either the 2010 or 11 maze and don't regret it. It's light, warm and comfortable.

In regards to the clip for the goggles, they stay on fine while you're wearing them, but if you take them off they won't hang from the clip because the clip for the strap opens towards the ground. Why they didn't make it so that we beat gravity I don't know, but it wouldn't stop me from buying another one.

Eg2 will fit with the maze.

The Smith Allure is the women's model of the maze.

MikeCL I ordered the Smith maze this morning from Amazon, given I'm in no rush and a upcoming holiday I opted for free 2 day, the small should fit me since my head is about 22-23 in.

I was in REI today to pick up a binding tool and beanie I happen to notice a women's helmet looked just like the maze, I did not look in detail but I can't remember if it had micro adjust, I can't say for sure but I want to say no

Zolemite 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.

david_z I noticed the same thing. Seems like they have specifically addressed their helmets to fit better over a beanie/toque. My older Maze helmet fits over a beanie but it's clearly not designed for that. The newer ones fit much better and I'm considering either a newer Maze or there's another new model that I dig, can't remember the name, but the Maze is so flippin' light I'm not sure I want to deviate from that one...
