actually, it would be more likely for me to think that someone who ISN'T wearing one was uncool!
Go get one, seriously. I picked one up this year and it's already saved me once from a nasty head vs snow fight. I didn't even realize I had hit that hard until I woke up today with a really sore and strained neck.
Also it keeps your head nice and warm! No need for a hat any longer.
nice, glad it saved you, but I hope you've already thrown that one out and are planning on replacing it. Like motorcycle and bike helmets, they are designed for one impact, the EPS foam in it crumbles, cracks and disintegrates, while absorbing the impact, and while it may look like it's in good shape, the outermost layer of the foam may be, while the rest has turned to sand, offering no protection! basically, it might work again, but it is more likely to do nothing... worst case scenario, if you need to go hit the slopes again, grab a bike helmet that's in good shape!
