REVIEW: This Helmet And These Goggles Prove Ski Equipment Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive

When I was a kid, I never skied with goggles or a helmet. I just didn’t need those accoutrements at my local mountain in central Pennsylvania. In college, however, I joined the ski club, which meant annual trips to the big-boy mountain of Stowe, Vermont. Needless to say, sans goggles and sans helmet, I was woefully unprepared. I had to invest this ski equipment, which made skiing much easier and more enjoyable.

Fast forward, nearly half a decade after college, and it had been a while since I’d hit the slopes. Somewhere in my various moves – from Boston to D.C., then from one apartment in D.C. to another to yet another, I lost my ski stuff. Not sure how it happened, but it doesn’t matter, I needed new ski gear.

So I got ski goggles and a ski helmet from Mpow. Ski snobs will tell you not to invest in gear unless it is from a brand like Oakley or Smith. Well, I am here to report that the ski snobs are wrong. A Smith helmet can cost you as much as $400. Mpow’s ski helmet, on the other hand is just $23 with the code MPOW2591.

And, guess what — it gets the job done! Last weekend, I took a ski trip to Okemo in Vermont. I donned the Mpow ski helmet and Mpow ski goggles. The entire time, Mpow’s products got me through the runs perfectly. You can tell immediately the helmet is made from high quality material, with an unyielding ABS shell exterior and firm, shock absorbent EPS interior. I’m man enough to admit that I fell a couple times last weekend (it had been a while, after all) and the helmet protected my noggin each and every time. Also, I have a big head, so I liked how adjustable it was. Also, the goggles worked like a charm, helping me navigate the foot of fresh snow that fell on the mountain during my second day of ski runs.
