I have never owned a helmet before but want to protect my head now that I'm older and rely on my brain to make a living. I tried on a Giro G10 helmet in the store and thought it felt good. I was looking at that one in part because of the optional audio/bluetooth system [n.b. so my kids can call me when they go to the lodge, not so I can blab on the phone and annoy others on the chairlift!].
I tried on Large and Medium. The Large felt spacious but not loose, whereas the Medium was snug. I'm thinking the Large is more appropriate for my head.
Is Giro considered a good brand? I see it's not even mentioned in the mini-review in the latest Ski magazine (Nov 2010, p.40), but I generally don't put much stock in such reviews.
Any reason not to get Scott goggles with a Giro helmet? The Scott OTG Heli felt good, but they go up against the helmet rim and perhaps might not ventilate as well. The store did not have any Giro goggles on hand.
