    Purchased for our 9-yr old son, ready to hit the slopes. He loves the look (no too heavy on graphics). Can't wait to use it!

    I was very nervous about ordering these ski helmets for my boys (ages 3 & 5) because they hate wearing hats or anything tight on their heads but the inside lining is so soft and comfortable that they have not complained once about wearing them. The fit is snug but they obviously don't feel constricted or else we would have heard about immediately. I can't recommend this helmet enough! As a bonus, they come with cute little stickers that the kids can put on there to customize them.

    I ordered the youth med. My head is 21" circum. This was way too big. There may be padding to add to make it smaller, but I just sent it back. It did seem very warm with the fleece and well protected... if you get the right fit.

    We ordered the medium but it was way too big. We called and replaced that one with a size small. [...] The size small fits much better although the opening to slip the head through is snug. We certainly want a snug fit versus too loose.

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Superdad from Lancaster, PA on Monday, October 25, 2010
    My son loves the shiny finish and the red color (which means he's more likely to wear it).
    My only complaint is that it sits a bit high on his forehead, leaving a large unprotected area. I adjusted the straps and verified correct positioning on his head, but I think it just needs to extend down a little more to protect little heads from hard collisions.
    Very nice youth helmet for the price though!
