Oh, no doubt. Skate helmets are really just to keep a rail or corner from poking your brain.

Snow helmets are more exspensive because they have more features and because people will pay it. If you just want something basic then nothing is stopping you from finding one of these from triple8 Save on Triple 8 Old School Snowboard Helmet Army - Mens Snowboards Helmets Snowboarding Gear Equipment A certified skate helemt with some ear flaps. The problem with all the skate helmets I have seen is that the brim comes dow way too far to work with goggles. If you're fine with no goggles on then there you go.

Just picked up a poc. Not sure how much I will actually end up wearing it, but it was by far the most comfortable helmet I tried on, and the most expensive

That POC is not a bad looking helmet. My local shop doesn't carry a huge selection of helmets, I'll probably end up with a Skycap or similar. No way am I going to pay over $55 though for a lid.

I got the red Hi-Fi Women helmet for 30 off sierra snowboard. By the chart, I was supposed to get a small, but only Large and XS were available so I bought a Large. It works fine, I just wear a ski headband (the one where it puts your hair back) inside the helmet and it fits perfectly. Don't worry if its too large, you could always by a ski headband or beanie and put it inside.

Yeah plus I've heard a lot of people say the Hifi runs a size small. How does it feel with your goggles? I've heard they sit down pretty low above your eyes.

Yea i got a small Hi-Fi off one of the discount sites for like 40 bucks last season...but its Matte black like the last one, not glossy black.

It works fine with both my Oakley A-Frames and my new Von Zipper Feenoms(big goggles)...

And i always LOL when i hear people say "If you want to go cheap with a helmet"..

If you want to go cheap, just don't fucking wear one... don't half ass it. That doesn't mean you have to buy some super deluxe model, but don't go strapping bits and pieces from other helmets onto your head and expect them to function properly when the time comes.

Feels...can't say I've ever heard of anyone building a helmet from scrap, but I'll put the money where it counts. I've got a $400 MX helmet hangin in the closet. Makes no sense to spend an excessive amount of cash on a snow helmet though unless I'm bombing over rocks every day.

How do you like that Hifi by the way, does it feel like it sits on top of your head, or like it fits around it?
