Alright, I went ahead and bought the smith vantage helmet in good old matte black. Figured if you don't know what to do, just go for the best and the simplest. Just have to wait for ski season now. Thanks everyone!

Philpug, were you serious?  Have you seen them in person as I was actually thinking about getting one, just to get away from black.  Are they glossy or matte?

Thanks!

I saw the lime green Vantage in person and very much wanted it.  (caveat: I like ugly, loud colors, so YMMV).

I guess if you were "going stealth", this would not be the color of choice!  On the other end, I like to be able to find my group by some distinguishing color, other than red jackets and black helmets.

Why pick just one?

I just bought a new helmet in boring gray. I'd love to have a variation of bumpfreaq's old helmet (which I was blessed to see in person on the sacred ice of Blue Knob, PA), but one that is instead the swirling blue, green and white colors of Planet Earth from space.

Hmmm, maybe a project for my artsy youngest daughter as payback for four years of college tuition?
Since she goes to an inexpensive state college that would be about a $90,000 helmet :-)
