I've only ever Tried Bern or Sandbox. I have a Sandbox myself thats vented and even on the coldest days I just put in a few vent plugs and I was golden, I picked up a size too small for a beanie but it fits fine without. I'd say those are my 2 favorite brands of helmets by far.

Anyone else having a problem with the chin straps digging into their adam apple?

My smith vantage seems to do that =/. I've tried to adjust the V part of the chin strap that is over the ears but can't seem to get it to fit well.

I have a oval shaped head, and atleast with MX helmets, there are some brands that fit oval shaped heads, and some that dont. Which snow helmets works good for oval shaped heads?

See the photo above. I got a big ol head... I think it might be oval... It's pointed at the top anyway. That thing fit me good, I tried on maybe 6 differed giro's. The chapter is def made for kids with tall melons.

I would like to wear a beanie under it, or atleast just the goggle strap! But then its just to size up isent it?

Thanks
i were a poc helmet and they are very good quality and really safe. They also make a lot of body armor too.

most of the helmets i tried on i had a lot of pressure on the front and back of my head but a lot of room from side to side

the Smith Maze seemed to be more oval-ish and fit me much better

Personally a bern guy here but its just because it fits my head as close to perfect as i could get. Using the watts, considered the baker but the watts comes with an interior vent cover that has kept the elements out when needed. Can pull the vent cover out and stick it in my pocket when it gets too warm

i were a poc backcountry. This helmet haves adjustible ventilation. Really a perfect helmet for me, but every headshape is different, so I would try some different helmets

Just remember three things when buying/using it

1. There should be no gap in between your helmet and your head...ever. Should be snug with no gaps. Nothing brain strangling, but snug.

2. Nothing more than a balaclava under the helmet...if you want full functioning safety of the helmet.
3. Rule number 1 applies to the strap. Shouldn't be loose at all. Should be snug, not killing you, but not enough to move the helmet around with minimal force.

As for what to buy.....whatever you like, fits, and it certified.
