Not as light as my climbing helmet, but it's light and more comfortable to use with goggles than my climbing helmet. Comes with 2 liners ( with and without ear flaps).

I've been using it more at the resort than touring, but it is plenty light and ventilated for touring.

She loves the weight (or lack thereof) while skinning. She has skied powder, crud, moguls, groomers, and she looks great ...

True story: Last year I was looking to upgrade my BC setup to something new and light weight. I also wanted to dip my toes into the race scene, and I wanted 1 pair of skis that was adequate for both disciplines. I found the Skimo.co website through an interview that Jason did on Skintrack.com. I knew nothing of these type of skis and did not even recognize most of the brands that Skimo was selling. After working through the site, I wrote Jason to ask for help and inquire about the Cirrus skis which had...
