You're still burning up from bootpacking up that last pitch, and you're dreading the thought of putting on a stuffy helmet for the descent. Then you remember that you don't have to worry, because you picked up the Sweet Protection Igniter II Helmet. This helmet has a super lightweight construction with front-to-back ventilation, ensuring that you don't have to trade comfort or weight for protection in the backcountry. The tough ABS thermoplastic shell offers high impact resistant without weighing you down, and the innovative vent design allows for cooling airflow when you work up a sweat bouncing through knee deep snow. It's also outfitted with Impact Shield technology, which absorbs and disperses impact force away from especially susceptible areas like the front and back of the head. You'll have lots of convenience and comfort, with a performance interior for easier adjustment and a better fit, as well as audio-compatible ear pads and a comfortable moisture-wicking liner.
