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

Gregory’s knowledge was clutch
5 /5
I really appreciated Gregory’s help. I would’ve been flying somewhat blind on my own. He probably saved me countless hours in internet research. I really appreciate his thoughtful recommendations, patience, and guidance through the process. I feel great about the choices I made and can’t wait to shred with my new gear 🏂

Great experience with Nate
5 /5
Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

5 /5
Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Spencer was super responsive and patient while I was trying to work from home but also purchased new snowboard gear. I had a lot of specifics I wanted to see with a new snowboard, bindings, and boots. Spencer was extremely knowledgeable and created a video to help me work through my available choices. Thank you for your honesty and experience. I can’t wait to go riding!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!

Franky made my re entry to boarding not only easy after 15 years. He made it fun. And he got me a killer deal on a 2024 board! Hope to see ya out there some day Frankie!!!!!!
5 /5
If you don't know. Ask. I was clueless cuz the tech has changed since I stated. Frankie helped me get the exact board I wanted for the kind of terrain I was headed to. These are people who know what they are talking about. And are more than friendly. I got a collection of curated boards and all were winners. Only 1 came home.

I’ve been contemplating buying skis for over a year now and reached out to Bernard initially. A year and some later I was finally ready to bite the bullet. I messaged Bernard again hoping he would respond and give me a few more up-to-date suggestions and he responded immediately!! I was so appreciative as the thought of shopping for skis is so time consuming and such an investment!

Henry Backs up Recommendations with Knowledge
5 /5
As an advanced skier, but somewhat out of practice with buying ski equipment I found Henry to be very knowledgeable and useful in picking out the right gear for my needs. He did everything an expert could do online to check to make sure the gear would fit me and explained why he made his recommendations even when I questioned it. I'm excited to get my equipment and can't wait to test it out! Would definitely recommend Henry to anyone looking for a downhill ski set!

I am in med school, so I am busy as can be studying while on rotations, so Sarah's texts got buried several times. She still put up with me for well over a year and reminded me about spring discounts. I was going to opt for cheaper union flight pros until i saw the spring discount price, then I was able to get the Union Atlas's for a good price! I found a website that had a better price shipped and asked Sarah if Curated would price match which she could not because their policy is same size and color of the model... BUT she then found another website with that same price in the same color and size to price match! Great info and guidance- and especially patience haha! Thank you, Sarah!
