This is the helmet I strap to my noggin' while cliff-dropping! The Smith Mission is a solid helmet for anyone looking to stay safe without the need for half-sends. Its top layer is durable, holds onto stickers well, and keeps that fresh pow out. I wear new hats under my helmet often and have been impressed by how adaptable... Read more

I've been using a variety of helmet brands over the years, but I've found that the Smith Mission is tried and true. Smith is constantly innovating to provide industry leading safety features while maintaining a fair price. I've found that other brands don't fit goggles that well, but Smith's Mission fits several of the goggles I use without letting snow... Read more

The Mission helmet is comfortable, sleek, and fits superbly with any Smith goggles. The Mission is also equipped with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) which will protect the head from a fall in any direction. Plenty of vents on the top of the helmet is a nice feature for warmer conditions- but when they're closed, no breeze will sneak in.... Read more

  • Resort skiing
  • Cold weather
  • Storm skiing conditions
Not ideal for
  • This helmet has fuzzy ear coverings on the inside- some people might not love this feature

Great knowledge and immaculate vibes
5 /5
Spencer curated my first snowboard, boot, and binding set up. He took time to understand me, my skill level, and aesthetic and riding preferences before making any reccomendations. What struck me the most was that you can genuinely tell he wants to find the best for you! He welcomes your feedback and easily adapts your curations according to your concerns. On top of that, Spencer went above and beyond by crafting a video going through the items in my curation, their advantages, and drawbacks. He patiently answered all my questions, no matter how basic they seemed. By the end of our interaction, I felt more confident and knowledgable of my purchase. I can't recommend this guy enough. Now I'm geared up and ready!

Sean was a great guide for my first big snowboarding equipment purchase. Made me very comfortable with the amount of patience and knowledge he had in regard to what I was looking for and the questions I had. I definitely feel like I made a good choice with trusting him in this process. Hope to get him again for my next purchases.

Tyler was able to provide a multitude of great options for me to check out. Being someone of a large boot size it was hard finding any boots within a reasonable price range that fit size 13 and up. Tyler was able to provide me with the best options I had seen up to this point and I couldn't be happier with the purchase I made today.

been looking for some time and not heavily loyal to a single brand as many shops are to a few - dalton pulled up a good number of options and was he helpful in understanding what was what. did not imagine i'd be buying online today and planned on researching only, but this was the best process ive seen.

I would definitely use this again! Very quick responses from Brooklyn- cool information video too! I wasn’t sure about ordering skis online but the information and price was so good that I feel like my investment will be enjoyed on the mountain each year instead of renting and throwing money away… Bravo for Brooklyn and this neat platform!

Jamie was amazing!
5 /5
Jamie was extremely helpful in helping me get to a better understanding of what I needed and what I was getting. Honestly, I believe I probably would've been lost trying to do all of this on my own. He provided plenty of options for gear as well as providing an informative and personalized video on his board, boots, and binding recommendations. He was responsive and was quick to tailor his suggestions as I provided additional information. He made my first experience with Curated very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. Honestly blew my expectations of what Curated was and how the process is working with an expert like Jamie. I would highly recommend working with him.
