Lightweight and fits great
Purchased for my 13 year old snowboarding son, who wanted a lighter weight helmet for his birthday. He's used it 4 times and his comments are: the helmet is very lightweight and more streamlined in styling than his Bolle helmet. He loves that the earpads are thinner so it's easier to hear people talking, plus less pressure when he's wearing earbuds. His ears stay warm. He likes the venting system and says it makes his head stay warm without sweating. Thinner, more comfortable head padding. Good goggle keeper/strap at back. Good looking helmet. I ordered him the medium, which luckily was sized slightly larger than the Bolle, and it's perfect.

Good helmet for the price
Had this helmet 2 weeks and have no significant complaints. Definitely just as light as everyone says. The biggest thing that surprised me was how much of a difference the few vents the helmet has actually make when opened. I didn't think I would notice a difference whether the vents were opened or closed, but the make a big difference in temperature regulation. The ventilation system also seems to really help prevent my Smith I/O goggles from fogging. Fits true to sizing chart. My head measured in the middle of the range for L and it fits very well. Cannot comment on the durability since, I haven't had it long.

This helmet is truly as light as everyone says it is. I've hit the slopes a couple times already with this helmet and it seems to do the job as far as protecting my head! If your head size sits on the fence between sizes, I would definitely recommend moving to the larger size.

I wore this helmet last year in white and just ordered the black from Altrec. EXTREMELY light and breathes well. Interesting feature that's not mentioned: You can close the vents from the inside in the front and back with a piece of the liner that is velcro. Works well with bolle goggles. Basically you forget this helmet is on: It's that lightweight and comfortable.

Love, Love, Love this helmet!!! This helmet is perfect for men who do not like helmet for feel that it is too heavy for their heads. Its very light weight and you don't feel it. Has soft knits that keep your head warm while on the mountains. I find it hard to find a helmet that fits my head well and is comfortable. This helmet fulfills that need. Its very lightweight, supposedly the lightest snow helmet available. I love the toque fabric that covers it; its pretty much what sold me. And the added removable magnetic poof ball on top is always fun. I love Smith products in general and I was psyched to have my first helmet be the Maze.
