Ruroc helmets, winter use

Hey, i was reading you comments prior and wanted to give some input as a user of the helmet. I got my helmet at the end of the season but got a chance to use it once. I went to a new resort this past season and it was a bit colder than usuall, I used the helmet with face mask and it was amazing. I was able to breath with ease and my goggles never fogged up. I wear contacts and need good goggles to ensure i can see. I felt that my Ruroc goggles were as good if not better than my burton goggles. The clarity was amazing, and being that i am somewhat sensative to light it provided great protection. In the past I would wear my old goggles and then while on the lift put them up or wear sunglasses, Ruroc goggles felt more comfotable then previous goggles. I do have a smaller head and tend to need smaller goggles, and these still worked great. The helmet was comfortable, and never overheated my head and my face wasn't to hot at all. I loved that when it started to snow I didnt have to worry about wet or moist fleece "turtle" neck on my face. This is my first helmet, but when I decided to get one, i found for the price it offered more than other helmets. With Ruroc you get a helmet, mask and goggles for $250, where a if i went to dicks I would spend around $109 for a helmet and $120-150 for goggles. I still would have to find face protection which hold bacteria and gets wet causing extra chapped lips and sreading germs. So i could spend $259 at the local shop for two items and still have less protection or i could go with Ruroc. Ruroc also gave me a unique look that other helmets do not offer. Over all i am happy with my purchase and as a girl would love an additional one in a diffierent color. lol If you want any more information let me know. hope this helps. take care and safe riding.

My buddy just ordered one and decided he's sending it back. The reason? - and sorry if this has been mentioned, but I don't think it has been - If you're wearing the mask component, you can't put your goggles up. That is, the face mask has to come off first, then the goggles. May seem like a small deal to some, but I can see where that would be a pain in the a$$ if you just wanted to pop your goggles up while on a chair lift or something. The mask clips over the goggles if you're using it.


edit: And since the face mask clips on over the goggles, it would seem that other goggles (like the Oakleys mentioned) wouldn't mesh well with the component-design of this helmet system.

Iv teathered my mask to the helmet so although you do have to remove the mask to remove the goggles
It's not gotta be held, it just hangs.

you can put goggles up and re attach mask if you'd want.

Will be my first season with the helmet so I guess I'll have a better idea how good it really is come jan.
I'll post an update when I'm back from Austria in a few weeks!

Curious- with your tethered-rigging... Think you'd be able to easily pop this stuff off on the lift with your gloves on while on the lift? Sometimes you just need to do that. Thanks. I love the look of these helmets. I wonder how many we'll see on the New England slopes this winter.

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!

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 ?
