I've used this helmet many times now and had no issues with it. The helmet looks very sleek and fits pretty comfortably as well. More than anything, a helmet is supposed to protect your head and this does exactly that. In the past I've taken some pretty bad falls, and your helmet can make the difference between a bad headache and a trip to the hospital. I have no problem recommending this to anyone. In terms of the appearance, the helmet looks very sleek and stylish. I think I look great gliding down the mountain. The gray is a little lighter than it appears in the pictures, but not by much. In terms of functionality, the helmet is great too. When I take my snowboard goggles off my face and rest them on the helmet, there is no slipping. The ventilation features are also great - some helmets have small holes that they claim allows for ventilation, but this helmet actually allows you to open up the vents and quickly cool down. The only negative I have to say is that the helmet isn't as comfortable when the ear pads are removed. I don't usually ride with ear pads off, so this isn't an issue for me personally, but even with them off, the helmet is more comfortable than others I have used.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Looks sexy; fits poorly

Purchased this helmet b/c I had had good luck with Burton products previously--and liked the low-profile matte black look of the RED Force. Upon receiving it though, it quickly became apparent that the fit was poor---despite an 'adjustable' internal fit, there appears to be something under the lining(?) that was lumpy that created a hot spot and poked the back of the head; not a subtle thing and no amount of adjusting the lining helped. Sending this product back without even trying to use it. If its this uncomfortable in the house--no way I'm taking it out in the elements. Ordered a Giro G10 instead--and love it. Love Altrec though; have used them many times before and service is quick, professional, and reliable. Keep up the great work, Altrec.Cons: Bad design, Poor quality
