The helmet has excellent quality with it's style, fit, and padding. On the first usage of the helmet on the ski slope, we were surprised when our 8 year old daughter told us that the helmet was hurting her head. We took off her helmet and looked inside it. Behind the circular adjustment was a 1/8th inch round rivet that is exposed and protrudes by 1/16th of an inch. Of course we had cut the tags at home. We put the helmet back on her head and tucked her jacket hood between the helmet and the back of her head so that she could ski comfortably.. Now that we are back home, I'm looking into putting duct tape or finding some extra bicycle helmet padding to attach or glue onto the helmet. Our other Lucky Bums helmets do not have this protruding rivet and are covered with padding. So hopefully your helmet will be fine.
Our son used this helmet from 9 months in a pack on my back while skiing. A year and a half on my back and up to three years when my son was skiing tip to bottom. The helmet is very adjustable and when our broke they sent us a new one no questions asked. Great helmet for very young snow sports and very adjustable.
I love this helmet as you can adjust the interior to fit according to how thick (if at all) a hat you are wearing. I would have liked a little more coverage over the ears, though. Haven't worn it yet and hope it's not a problem.
