The Curated Take
The Smith Scout MIPS Helmet is a great all-around helmet for your skiing and snowboarding needs. This helmet uses top-of-the-line industry safety standards with ABS materials (designed for impact resistance) and MIPS system (designed to decrease the severity of rotational forces caused by angled impacts). Both of these features drastically increase brain protection so you can get sendy on the slopes with confidence.
This helmet doesn't sacrifice comfort for function and features eight vents and removable ear pads for maximum comfort in a variety of conditions on the mountain. This helmet is integrated with all Smith goggles, keeping your lenses fog-free and eliminating any gaps. As a bonus, if you enjoy listening to music while you ski or ride, this helmet is equipped with ear slips for bluetooth headphones.
I have been using this helmet for years and have found it to be comfortable, warm, and have not had any issues with the durability of the components. I have a smaller head and usually struggle to find helmets that feel secure, but the Scout MIPS fits my head great without being too tight and is easily adjustable.
Overall, this is a great helmet for beginners and advanced skiers alike, and it has all the components that make it safe, comfortable, and stylish.
- All day comfort and warmth on the mountain or in the backcountry
