Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver? I bought my helmet on 7 December on arrival in Zermatt. On 11 December I came to on a piste I know well, as I was put in a helicopter having suffered a serious concussion. I have little doubt that the helmet I was wearing saved me from a much more serious injury, or worse. The helmet was a write-off but my head wasn't, and I'm pleased I chose the best I could find. I would not hesitate in recommending this product. I should add that in the short time I had it, it was the most comfortable and best fitting helmet I've had, and I will be replacing it with the same model. Peter, UK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Helmet I demo'd this helmet for a full day last week when temperatures dipped below zero. With the wind chill it was -10 degrees. This helmet was ridiculously warm! I had never worn a helmet before while skiing and was skeptical it would provide warmth. I was no longer skeptical after just riding the chair lift to the top of the mountain. My head was completely warm the entire day. The helmet worked perfectly with my Smith IOX goggles. The helmet's BOA system provided an excellent custom fit and was completely comfortable. Thankfully I didn't test the impact protection, however I trust the helmet provides superior protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my head I just want to send you a short note thanking you for making a quality product. On 1/19/2015 I was boarding at Snowbird and I caught an edge and got turned around and heading out of control head first down Chips Run. Now I always wear my helmet and I like to stay close to the edge because that’s where the soft snow is especially on a busy day but today as faith would have it I put your Vantage helmet to the test and I’m here to write you and sing the praise of how great it works. The helmet cracked upon impact instead of my head and for that I am eternally grateful and I just wanted to say THANK YOU.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good product, just not worth the extra money looks great, great vents, easy access to the speaker housings. It just feels a little cheap and this is one of their most expensive helmets! thank god for the adjustable clamps, i was a 59-60 cm head and opted for the large vs the med and the large was too big. However, and i thought this was coming, i got this model so i could adjust the fit via the fly wheel like my bike helmet. With that it does fit nicely. However, there are a few rough plastic parts that poke the head if not tucked in... a 200+ helmet shouldn't have a plastic liner that can poke the forehead without a beanie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet I already have a Variant and just bought the Vantage for my wife. She and I loved it so much, I bought myself one too and gave my Variant to my son. Either helmet you can't go wrong with. I just like the updated style and fit of the Vantage over the Variant. The Vantage and Variant do fit different so highly recommend you try them on before ordering. Seems my size is between a Small and Medium (55cm) so finding the right fit can be difficult. Either the small is too tight or the Medium looks too big. Adjustment system is nice and easy to use on these helmets to get the right custom fit. I use to have a Giro but prefer the Smith helmets now. Better quality and style. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from adjustment wheel an issue I love everything about this helmet except for the adjustment wheel, it rubs against the collar of my jacket, when I turn my head in one direction the wheel rubs against my jacket and loosens the helmet, when I turn my head the other direction it tights it. Smith needs to design a better wheel that does not catch in this manner. It was extremely frustrating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Nothing Bad To Say I snagged my Vantage in 2014 and I'm still using it happily, 40 ski days in. Here's my good/bad analysis: Good: Fits like a dream with great adjustability. Vents are easy to open and close, even with gloves. Works well with Skullcandy audio kits. Seemingly impervious to the scratching and discoloration my earlier helmets suffered from. Bad: Seems to get loose while stored, albeit only when I don't use for a week or more. Comes with a storage bag that while easy to slip into a jacket pocket, isn't as substantial as those that come with helmets costing half as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Helmet I've ever owned I had a horrendous crash last week free skiing. I clipped my outside edge and was flipped backwards. The last thing I remember was seeing my skis above my head looking up hill. I slammed on my back and head against the snow. I finally came to a stop and skied out of it (crazy). I met my wife at the bottom of the run and asked her how would you know if you have a concussion and she asked why. I told her a took a rough fall and she noticed my helmet was destroyed. I then thought to myself..."it seemed kinda loose on my way down." The helmet took the whole brunt of the crash and I walked away. These are designed to break apart and take the force of crashes and it worked perfectly. Thank you Smith for making a wonderful product and Making Every Day Better (and possible). You Guys Rock!!!
