- Name: 2012 Smith Holt Snowboard Helmet
- Pros: Light material, washable liner, Vented
- Cons: Not slim profile,
I bought this helmet two years ago at the last minute, and, after two aggressive years of riding, the helmet has held up pretty well. I wear the helmet when I'm riding in tight tree runs or if I'm in the park. I've taken quite a few bad falls in the park and hit my head. While the material feels light (the shell is made out of a light-weight plastic) and not very strong, The helmet protected me. I haven't found any damages to the helmet after the falls.
The helmet is not uncomfortable and I don't notice it when I'm riding, but it doesn't conform to my head, and the helmet doesn't have a slim profile. The helmet doesn't feel snug, but that could just be my head.
For the money, I don't think this helmet is bad. If I had had more time to research, I probably would've gone for something different. But the helmet has lasted longer than I expected. It's a good helmet if you're just starting out, and trying to keep all your gear within the budget.
