Each year the ski helmet manufacturers produce more models of womens ski helmets to offer female skiers a variety of ski helmet options. Womens ski helmets generally have a more streamlined, lower profile design which looks less bulky than many mens or unisex ski helmets. Many of the womens ski helmets feature plush interiors and feminine designs and colors to match any ski attire.
Womens Ski Helmets are extremely comfortable to wear and are significantly warmer than ski hats. Wearing a ski helmet also has other benefits; the added protection may help you feel more confident on the slopes and willing to take on more difficult terrain than before. Also many mothers have found that wearing a Womens Ski Helmet themselves sets a better example for their kids and saves a family argument about the kids not wanting to wear a helmet because the parents aren’t.
Womens Ski Helmets are designed to work seamlessly with many styles of ski goggles. If ski goggles feel bulky to you when you ski in a hat, they won’t if you wear a ski helmet. When wearing a ski helmet and goggles the goggles should fit right up to the brim of the ski helmet to ensure a proper fit. With a proper fit you will have a warm and comfortable womens ski helmet and goggle combination, providing you with a clear peripheral view.
There are a couple of types of womens ski helmets; however Half Shell Helmets are by far the most popular. Half Shell helmets feature a hard upper shell and soft ear flaps which are typically more comfortable and are easier to hear out of than the alternative, Full Shell Helmet. With a Full Shell Helmet, the hard outer shell comes down further and covers the ears. This style of helmet is most frequently used by ski racers as they allow for the attachment of a chin guard which can be required for racing. Full Shell helmets are warmer, but are more difficult to hear out of. It is up to you to decide which style of womens ski helmet you choose to wear, the most important thing is that you wear one.
