I've been using this helmet for more than a year and I have no complaints. I have a big head so proper fitting helmets have been hard to come by. I wear a 7 3/4 fitted hat and the XL Smith maze fits great.
The Smith Maze comes with a good amount of padding which can be removed if you prefer to wear a beanie. It is one of the lightest helmets on the market, you can barely tell that it is there.
Smith goggles fit this helmet perfectly which make for a clean, put together look. The helmet has small, slightly caved in areas along the sides which can make stickers difficult to apply cleanly. I've taken some big falls and this helmet has only shown some small scratches.
Great helmet overall and I would recommend it to any type of skier.
The foam in my Giro Revolver that I've had for a couple years finally started to peel off of the hard shell, so I figured it was time to replace it. I decided on the Smith Maze because I heard that it was light and low-profiled. This proved to be quite true! It is indeed extremely lightweight and doesn't make me look like a bobble head on the hill. It also fits better than any other helmet I've worn. As Mingg said, the earpads can be removed for use w/beanie. If you wear beanies under helmets though, I'd recommend getting a size larger than you think you need. I found my size fit my head great, but with a beanie on it got uncomfortable. Lastly, you can get this helmet with the "screaming eagle" print on it. that's pretty cool
The Maze is a really good helmet. I've taken blows to my head on rails, jumps, and skiing in trees and it's held up quite well. Even with some pretty hard falls there's no noticeable dents or cracks in it. The ear pads are easily taken out if you want to just rock a beanie under your helmet. Also, it has a slightly low profile and doesn't run big or small. Overall this helmet is awesome. I paid $100 for mine and it is well worth it.
***This helmet does not work well with Smith I/OS goggles. If you care about not having a gaper gap don't try to wear these two together. The frame of the I/OS is curved and the helmet doesn't fit it right. ***
