What: Smith Valence Snow Helmet
Why I chose it: I was stoked on this helmet the minute I put it on. It’s incredibly warm and has plenty (18 to be exact) of air vents to keep your head cool when needed (fortunately, you can also take the earpads out if it’s warmer weather). There’s a Boa system to adjust the fit so it’s just right, plus a super simple goggle lock in the back. Add in some Smith goggles and you’ll get a perfect fit (no gap!) each time.
