Looking for First Helmet, Suggestions?

Contemplating wearing a helmet this season. I have never worn one before when snowboarding, although I wear one for other stuff; snowmobiling, riding MC.

Thinking if I get one it would be one with a brim.

I got about 7" head, any suggestions...

I love my Smith Variant, and you can get it with or without a brim. There are so many helmet choices these days though. Just go try a bunch on until you find one you like.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I have heard that having a brim can be a pain in the ass if you want to put ya goggles up there when they aren't on ya face. They slip off? Hard to get up and over it?

Someone will no doubt chime in telling me i'm wrong. I'm down with that.

Haha no its actually not too bad, I havent had a problem with mine falling off when they are up there. You do have to stretch them a little farther to get them up and over the brim but its not like its a pain or anything.

Cool! Yeh I guess its not like a large brim like a fitted or snapback or something you gotta heave it over. Thx for the info, knew someone would come on in
