We're helmet fans here at SNEWS. Skiing or snowboarding without something to protect your noggin is a risk no one should take, especially when the industry puts out so many awesome models to choose from.

There are a lot of different helmet types and features out there—in-mold, hard shell, soft shell, fixed and adjustable vents, camera mounts, audio compatibility, and much more.

Regardless of what specific style you rock, we want to know who makes it. Which brand has your loyalty when it comes to helmets?
