I wore the Giro Encore 2 Helmet during four days of skiing this January. It fit well (sized accurately), had decent padding, good ventilation, and was comfortably warm in 20-30 degrees F with no additional headwear. I returned this item today, however, because the rear snap for goggles broke. The helmet was not abused during skiing; I believe this is just a weak component. Otherwise, a good helmet for a good price. I purchased the Giro Revolver, to take the place of the Encore 2. I am not excited for the velcro-attached padding, but am hoping the non-adjustable plastic snap on the Revolver will last.
