        Overall

        Besides the price i paid and the weight that you have to get used to, it was, and still is a dope helmet. You can ride your local hill with comfort, warmth, and knowing you have a good quality bucket protecting that all precious head of yours.

        Performance

        I have yet to fall on my head, but i can say this cap has kept my head warm, with Ontario rain and sleet, and on those -30 C day (windchill not included)

        Design

        I am perfectly happy with the design, it does not look to bad, or odd, i like the shape. I don't like riding with the ear flaps so i just ride with a toque underneath.

        Value

        I bought it at Tremblant where they said i had to have a helmet to ride the park, it was $60 with tax, but hey its going to last me at least three seasons right.

        Fit

        I have a small head, so i got the small, and its great and snug the way a cap should be, i can even put a beenie or toque underneath no problem. Some people complain that it is to big or bulky, having not had another helmet besides this one i cannot comment but i can say after just one or two day of riding you will have gotten used to it.

        Durability

        No cracks, a small few scratches but only cosmetic damage, can't say anything negative.
