Reccomendations on a cheap ski helmet

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so i've got a ~£50 budget to spend on a helmet for skiing only, is there a particular one that i should look out for? I'm not interested in colours or anything, but it would be handy if it was shaped well for a POV cam too.

Any help appreciated.

This is the only purchase that I would say don't look at the price when shopping. Find the helmets that fit well, then look at prices. This one piece of equipment should never be bought on price first, fit second.

Boots are a similar item that need to be bought for fit, not price, but the reason you are buying a helmet makes it the top of the list for fit before price.

I understand entirely your point, the budget is not a major issue, its just that i've looked at several places and i don't know that much about them, so before i pick one just because of its design i'd like to know what are good ones to look out for in that price range.

Thanks

 I have a smith holt. Cost about £60, has removable vent plugs, and generally does the job well.

I'll probably go for the Holt, im definately going to a shop to have it fitted properly, and if they don't have one i'll just buy it online.

Cheers guys.
