The good ones are more than that. I have no clue, I had one but it broke. I only used it in the park, but if I could find a comfortable one I wouldn't mind wearing it all the time. I just need a job and then I'll be able to get one.

dude it sounds to me that you're good at riding since you're hitting the park etc... So I would suggest instead of going 5 times this year, go 4 times but go with an helmet..
Also, if an helmet is certified it's certified to protect you.. you can get a helmet for $40 easy.. check out K2 INDY at backcountry.. I'm looking to get that

There's no difference besides comfort or warmth on helmets.. all the certified ones will give you decent protection

Not sure if it is the same for snowboard helmets, but motorcycle helmets offer better protection as the price goes up. The impact material is different, thus helping more than cheap helmets.

The average helmet only protects you up to 15 mph and is only good for one hit. If I'm getting one,and I am, I am getting one that is worth it and they're expensive. Because the only time I am going slower than 15 mph is jibbing or skating.
