Reviews - Smith Variant Brim Helmet
First ski helmet
I am an older skier who finally decided to get a helmet after a friend seriously injured himself even though he was wearing a helmet. He probably would have been paralyzed if he hadn't been. I chose the Variant Brim Helmet because it had vent ports like that on my cycling helmets. Unlike my cycling helmet, these ports can be closed keeping my head warm. The coverings around the ear kept my ears warm while allowing me to hear boarders and skiers behind me. I have a Smith Turbo Fan goggle which fit perfectly with the helmet. When the goggles started to fog, I didn't have to activate the fan. I merely opened the vents and the goggles cleared up. Finally, wearing the helmet allowed me to ski without having to wear a beanie or head band while keeping my head warmer. My wife is more at ease when I go skiing now.
Excellent Helmet Redemption for Altrec
This helmet fits perfectly with the BOA system. It pairs perfectly with my Smith goggles and the ventilation keeps them fog free. Well designed, seems very durable, ear pads keeps ears toasty warm without blocking out too much sound. Drop in speakers will be a blessing from the gods once they arrive. Helmet is very warm when vents are closed and cools quickly once opened. I was very weary about ordering again from Altrec as my first experience was ordering a board (2 day shipping so I would have it for a weekend of shredding.) and they sent me the wrong size board (145 when I ordered a 158). Altrec customer service is what truly redeemed them and I will be a life long customer as a result.
Bought for my Husband
I bought this helmet as a present for my husband, he really likes it and thinks it's comfortable. The adjustable sizing is great to get the perfect fit. It's also cool looking and stylish, I might have to buy one for me.
