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

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

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.

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!

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!
