Default Looking to purchase my first helmet

Hello all

I need help. I'm a beginner snowboarder. I've been boarding for about 3 years now. I make it out about 2-3 times a year. I'm getting a little better, and therefore spicing up my runs by doing some jumps and what not. I don't have a helmet and I need to get one. I have no idea where to look other than Burton.com.

Where are some good places to look?

What are sites that have the best price?

Which helmet would you recommend?

So far I've started looking at the RED Hi-fi Helmet by Burton. It looks showy, I like how you can place some audi-speakerphones in the ears so you can jam to your iPod, seems reasonably priced ($99), etc.

Thoughts?

Suggestions?

Is this a pretty good deal? Is it cheaper somewhere else, other than Burton.com?

Thanks!

Helmets can't be recommended. Like your feet, everyone's head measurements are different. We could have the exact same circumference, yet find different helmets to be comfortable.

I personally use a Smith Variant, but that is a higher priced one. Smith, Giro, RED, and POC are all good brands. Bern and Pro-Tec are good too.

Play around with the filter boxes and sort by price or size:

Snowboard Helmets

Oh, I made the assumption that you're male.
