But have you ever actually used a Ruroc? Can you at least provide a better helmet?

how about ANY helmet? that thing is a fucking joke. if you're too stupid to see it then that's on you.

3.) The goggles do not fog up.
4.) Get it in the right color, and you'd actually look like a bad-ass!
This I would condone, cause it does not inhibit your vision of the front tip of the board. I'm sure lateral peripherals are fine, but its the downward peripheral vision that would be sacrificed with the other "MTB type" designs.

1.) I've been snowboarding for 6 seasons.
2.) I'm not a "kid", I'm an adult.
3.) I find it ironic that you're a member of this site, having the grumpy attitude of a skier.

I must say, I didn't expect to come back and find this thread sitting at the top.

For those concerned, I've been rocking a Bern Brentwood Zipmold for the past few months. It's perfect for XC riding and I'm sure it will be great on the slopes this year (with the winter liner). Bonus: the color scheme matches both my Haro and my Forum.

Ride on... It's getting colder.

Yeah... I'm getting a tad aggravated thanks to the stupid woman who decided to hit me while snowboarding last week and took my shoulder out... AGAIN.

My point is, let's play nice with each other, or else I won't hesitate to take this play place away.

I wouldn't laugh at anyone wearing one and i think its an invalid argument with the whole lack of peripheral vision thing. But I also think it is unnecessary.
