What are some good brands for helmets and where to get them? I've had mine for a few seasons and feel like it's time for a replacement.

TIA

You shouldn't be shopping by brand, you should be shopping by fit and features.

I've got a POC backcountry receptor MIPS. Partly for the fit on my weird head, partly for the technology.
Came from Yuho Sports.
I would recommend it.

Besides the fact that you mentioned Yuho sports, I agree with everything else.

POC makes nice shit, unfortunately I didn't like their fit for cold gear. I do run their full face helmet for mountain biking, and it has probably saved my life.

I didn't mean to endorse Yuho, only POC

Seemed like a sketchy hole in the wall and they didnt even give me a receipt, but helmet was in stock and price matched to backcountry.com

VPO stocks POC, so do skiis and biikes

rolled up to the border yesterday, told the officer im going to mt baker. He asked me if i was planning on driving my car up. I was like yes, he said your car is lowered, you aint gonna make it up there lol. Challenge accepted.

I made it up there, and all the hillbillys in their awd and 4x4 were staring at me haha.

on my way down, i saw 2 SUV in the ditch...muahahah....It aint the car, its the driver.

There was tons of snow up there.






came back to find my car covered in snow

Had the same thing happen to me lol the boarder guard said that I wouldn't make it up to baker. "Your car is too low" what makes you think that you can make it up.
