Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The padding also works to protect your jaw from any impacts you suffer. Plus, over the ear protection keeps your ears nice and warm during the cold skiing day.
You don’t have to worry about comfort either, because the plush interior liner and the ear pads feel comfortable and warm. They also have an additional feature – they are compatible with earbuds so you can listen to some music while skiing.
On top of that, we liked the adjustability of this helmet. It comes with a Boa-style adjustment knob that makes it easy to match the helmet to whatever you’re wearing on your head that day.
Its an ultra-lightweight gear that will not only fit perfect but won’t feel bulky or heavy.
The ventilation technology applied will leave you super cool and comfortable. Additionally, you can all the vents for faster cooling.
Drift is definitely a stylish option, and the design is smooth and modern. It looks a lot smaller than some of the other choices out there, and really is a sleek choice, especially because of the matte finish.
It has a lightweight construction which feels comfortable to wear even for extended periods.
Comfortable ergonomic fit with removable ear pads.
