The Curated Take

Nathan G., Snowboarding Expert
By the Expert Community

I loved the thought of the goggle and helmet integration and saw a few brands coming out with similar technology, so I gave Smith a shot with the Survey MIPS. I chose the photochromic lenses so I would be set for sunny and low light conditions with the lens. The fit was great, just like other Smith helmets I've owned in the past, and the goggles extended down on my face to where I prefer them to rest. The problem I had was when I started going fast. I felt the wind enter the goggles from under the bottom edge, making my eyes water causing difficulty in seeing clearly. I know others don't necessarily have the same experience, but that's my concern with these goggles. There is limited adjustability, so I couldn't really improve the situation. The other concern I had with these was that if a smudge or snow got inside the goggles, it was really tough to wipe or clean out the inside of the goggles, especially on the slopes. The only access is from under the goggles inside the helmet, which was a bit frustrating.

Ideal for
  • The Survey has the fantastic integration of goggles and helmet with one product
  • The Survey has amazing features like audio compatibility, ventilation, easy buckle, and removable padding.
  • Safety, need I say more, this features MIPS
Not ideal for
  • The goggles don't form a great seal on the face the way a traditional goggle does so wind would get inside when going fast.
  • The inside of the goggles can be difficult to clean especially on the mountain

The Smith Survey ski and snowboard helmet combines MIPS® and zonal Koroyd® safety innovations with a lightweight design for all-mountain use. An integrated visor simplifies goggle wear and offers the terrain-defining clarity of ChromaPop™. The helmet is lined for comfort with adjustable vents to regulate airflow. An adjustable dial fine-tunes fit, and the visor is over the glasses compatible.

Holes let snow in

Originally posted at www.smithoptics.com on Feb 13, 2024
I loved this helmet the first two days we were skiing, then it started to snow. The vents in the top of the helmet allow snow in, a lot of snow. I had about an inch of snow in my goggles and could not ski. I ended up putting bandaids over the top of the holes, but that didn’t allow any venting. Very poor design. I wanted to love this helmet. If your using it for sunny no snow days, it’s great, but I’m not going to travel with two helmets z

Really great for brand-new riders
5 /5
I'm a brand-new rider, only boarded twice. Always rented my gear. He took me from "never really looked into purchasing my own gear" to riding season-ready in a night. He was able to explain all his recommendations and made me feel good about using this service. Tailored everything to what I was looking for and really knows how to connect with newcomers to the sport. You can tell he's got a lot of experience boarding and I could tell he really enjoyed helping a new rider.

Kelly was prompt in responding, knowledgeable and guided me patiently keeping my skill level in mind. Even though I was ambitious and wanted a board beyond my skill level, she patiently explained why some other boards were better suited for what I was looking to get out of my riding
5 /5
Shopping online for snowboarding gear is daunting. The returns are not easy and you are worried you are not sizing the board properly or overlooking key features of the board. For a beginner like me, having a gear expert to talk to brought a lot of comfort and better trust in my choice of board. With the price match guarantee, you know you are getting the best deal online.

5 /5
Mike was great and very responsive. within minutes he was able to provide me with multiple options for boards, bindings and boots. He took time to learn about my skill level and what I am looking for. He asked for a budget and provided things under budget, in range and slightly over budget so I could see the differences between each item and value they add. He also was able to put together videos explaining each item and the pros and cons for each. On top of this I found a retailer selling one of the boot recommendations on sale and within 5 mins Mike was able to price match it in my size and I got them for $100 less than initially listed.

5 /5
He found a couple of boards that I really liked, ones I wouldn't have think of to look up. He took the time to tell me what each board was like and whether it would fit what I was looking for. We took a little more time to land on something that also had colors and designs that I wanted, because I am very picky and want to look stylizish. I'd say the effort was collaborative, because I was also actively searching on my own, but I liked that I was able to send him some of my findings, and he would tell me what he thought of those boards, then he would adjust my curations based on what I showed him. This was super helpful on my decision making, and eventually he suggested the Jones twin sister board to me and it's like, once you know, you know. Never purchased from curated before so I am a little nervous about shipping and quality control, and I also don't see reviews once orders were received, so hoping things all work out!

Taylor was very nice and helped out with money saving options, especially with me being new to the sport, that were helpful to figure out what I should get. She knows to appeal to who she’s helping as far as color ways for male or female while still giving a cheaper or more favorable option.

I've read good & bad reviews about the curated experts. Zach was not one of the bad! Very nice, very patient , very knowledgeable & we both have similar taste in equipment. I was having trouble making a decision on board & size, but after speaking with Zach it seemed like a no-brainer. Appreciate the support!
