Scott USA has been making great gear since the 1960’s and this helmet is no exception. It has well thought out low-profile shape, a neat built-in visor, excellent venting system that works no matter how cold and snowy it gets, a great strap, and super retention adjustment via the fitment dial. Put this ll together with the MIPS technology that can mitigate rotational forces imparted due to angled impacts via flexible anchors. This helmet is lighter than average and works well for both on area skiing and riding as well as for backcountry tours where you would alternately carry it and wear it. It is not a great burden to tote this along for the advanced protection it provides.
