I've had the same GIRO 9 for 10 years (and yes it does stink like hockey gear), I like the fact that it's lite, removable earflaps, and removable vent covers, they used to have a lifetime warranty, but not sure anymore.

I've worn a helmet since I started riding. Last night my buddy that i've ridden with for a couple seasons on and off says to me, "when did you start wearing a helmet?"... he never even noticed. Cool friends eh

No, sorry, the lesson was: no one gives a fuck if you do or don't

I have a Salomon Patrol helmet. I think it looks pretty darn good on me.

Helmets used to be unusual. Now they are the majority by quite a bit on the hill.

I think a lot of people don't wear helmets particularly because they look (and feel) a little weird. Honestly, I only use mine when I'm riding park or backcountry and I know I'm going to be seriously pushing my abilities or possibly being inverted.

And the day it's going to be an "easy" day is the day you're going to have your brains spilled out. Take it from me, I know.

If you have a helmet why not wear it all the time? Because you feel dorky? You'll look a lot more goofy when your mom is feeding you baby food.

Not trying to start shit. I was the idiot who didn't wear mine because it didn't look cool. And the day I was taking it easy is the day I wrecked myself. Just hoping people learn from me so they don't experience the shit I had to live through.

life IS good.

I bought a Smith Varient helmet this year. It's a tight fitting sleek design and I think it looks great. Last year I had a Burton Red. Both look nice but the smith fits nicer and looks much better.

I have too much to lose in the name of looking good, not to wear a helmet. Besides...I probably look just as stupid without one as I do with one.

The hardest hit I have ever taken to my head was on the plate ice when unloading chair 8 in vail. Someone caught my board withe their ski pole and it took my board out. It dazed me with my helmet. Without it, who knows. I had less dizziness when I got smacked with a 2x4 in a brawl once though.

I ride that chair 6-7 times a day about 5 days a week..... I always wear a helmet. I'd rather look stupid than be stupid. These days your in a major minority if your not wearing a helmet.
