The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

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.

Ideal for
  • All day comfort and warmth on the mountain or in the backcountry
  • Adjustable padding to fit all head shapes and sizes
  • Simple, aesthetic design in multiple colors
Not ideal for
  • Some customers report a lack of durability

The Smith Scout MIPS helmet is an amazing helmet. I personally love it due to its size. Having a slimmer profile than other MIPS helmets, I love the way this helmet looks when I'm out riding, and it's very comfortable. In terms of actual protection, the Scout is a lifesaver. I've taken several BIG falls with this or one of... Read more

The Smith Scout is a simple yet solid helmet for any ability skier. The style is more focused to those freeride / park riders who care less about breathability and more about safety. The shell is extremely durable and can hold up to plenty of abuse. The fit is good but there is no option to adjust for different size... Read more
Ideal for
  • Simple and stylish looking
  • Heavy duty and durable construction
  • Comfortable as long as fit is correct
Not ideal for

Like the helmet enough, but

Like the helmet enough, but was disappointed the first time I used it and the clip for the chin strap fell off.

Great Fit

Posted on Sep 6, 2023
I loved this product. I wore it on the mountain within 24 hours of getting it. I had never gone skiing with a helmet before (dumb move, I know) and was afraid I was going to feel cramped and uncomfortable, but I was pleasantly surprised. I would absolutely recommend this.

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.

Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

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!
