But how does one calibrate the hat and/or helmet. This question has kept me up many nights. I have also seen some with hats on under thier helmets. Does this require special tools or is it accpetable to simply calibrate the hat first, then the helmet?  Is there a difference for cotton vs. tech-wick vs. wool?

Speaking of which I need a new more aggressive looking full face helmet....open to suggestions....ski helmets only please.

I don't even know of any full-face helmets.  Sounds like you wouldn't have to worry about goggles fogging and the dreaded gap though.  What have you found so far? (I'm in the market for a helmet).

Nope last season Head came out with one which was just a relabled Leedom I think...but it wasnt different enough from mine to justify the expense, but I have not seen any new ones this season.

I am not sure why you are asking for a ski specific ski helmet. The Grio Remedy about the only difference I see is the goggle strap. Which I find funny since most bikers that use a full face wear goggles and the strap is not needed.

If I were you I would look at full face helmets from helmet manufactures that make mountain bike full face helmets. 661, Giro, Bell, Troy Lee, are some of the few. These helmets are not DOT rated so they are lighter weight and will work for skiing just fine.

For me if I am in a situation where I want a full face I will just grab the helmet I use for DH that is DOT and ECE certified.

Smith in conjunction with Troy Lee has a version of the D2 helmet.
It has a few modifications to the front of the helmet to make it better for Skiing.
A few of the riders in this yeras Matchstick film were wearing it.

Those look pretty good, I am really liking the Dainese, but that front portion seems to stick out way too far. Svindal wears a similar one for slalom.

Which one is that?

The helmets shown so far have way too much jaw protrusion for my tastes.  I don't need that lever arm sticking out that far.

The Rockgardn Blacklite


Any helmet like the one you posted above with no visor is going to look funny.
