POC Fornix Backcountry MIPS?

I concussed myself pretty well and shattered my helmet last weekend so I'm definitely in the market for a new helmet!

Anyone have one of these and willing to share their thoughts? I've heard the vents could use some work, but overheating has never been a huge issue for me. I have Smith I/O goggles - any idea if they fit? The MIPS technology sounds great - certainly worth a few extra bucks.

It is the most comfortable helmet i have ever had. I am entering my 3rd season with it. I cannot speak to protection or durability as i have not yet taken a head shot with it on.

Good to know. Thanks. A nearby shop had a POC skull XL (59-60) in stock and it seemed to fit my head shape so hopefully the fornix will as well. I guess I just have to wait until next season to find out!
