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.
