Default Should I buy a helmet?

I've been snowboarding for a long time and I'm considering getting a helmet. Can anybody give some advantages (besides safety) to wearing one? Ex. do helmets work well with headphones (I use my mp3 player allot on the hill), are they warm, comfortable? Good brands, deals? Thanks for any help!

A helmet is never a bad idea. Even more so when it come to expierimenting in the park and stuff like that(ie: learning new tricks, bigger jumps, etc.)

There are a load of companies makeing good helmets, RED, Giro, Bern, Protec. They are plenty warm and some you can where a thin hat underneath. As far as using your MP3 player several companies have started to incorporate headphones into there helmets. My RED has headphones built in and they work great.

Trust me coming from someone who has knock themselves out while wearing a helmet its a good idea just to have one. You don't always need to wear it. But there are tiem and you'll know when where you should have it or wish that you did.

Yes, period. Its difficult to improve in snowbording without taking risks and getting seriously injured is never cool.

if you do not think you need a helmet, then you prolly do not have the brains to lose to necessitate one !

just get one. doesnt mean you have to wear it all the time but its there when you need it.

i have a red helmet. its warm and comfy. no problems with wearing my ear buds with it. no need for a hat underneath even in the coldest weather. the only thing i dont like about mine is it creates some weird wind noise so it always sounds like someone is riding up my ass

I decided to get a helmet this season only because I've hit the back of my head way too many times.

Smith Holt Mythology for me!
