Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet

Topped-off with a generous scoop of style, the Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet provides the very best head protection for nailing your line in the backcountry or ripping up the corduroy on-piste. The Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet combines all of the technology-packed performance of the standard Vantage Ski Helmet with the addition of Smith's new MIPS system to reduce the chance of injuring your head even further.

MIPS

Smith's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. All Smith Ski Helmets are created to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and when combined with MIPS, a Smith Ski Helmet absorbs oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner. This allows the helmet's outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground at an angle, so the rotational force is decreased, reducing potential damage to your brain.

Hybrid SL Shell Construction

Smith's Hybrid SL Shell Construction fuses In-Mold construction with Bombshell Material. In-Mold Construction - which bonds the poly carbonate (PC) shell directly to an extended polystyrene (EPS) liner - protects the lower portion of the helmet, for flyweight impact protection. 

Smith's Bombshell Construction over the top of the head uses an ABS shell to withstand high-impacts, while offering unparalleled durability, dent and ding resistance. This revolutionary combination produces a lightweight, low-profile, perfectly fitting Ski Helmet with a clean, smooth top surface.

AEROCORE™ with Koroyd®

This construction offers four primary benefits:

  • Increased impact resistance. Koroyd® is a revolutionary new material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards. It is constructed from thousands of co-polymer extruded tubes thermally welded together, creating impact protection with excellent ventilation. Upon impact, Koroyd's® cores crush in a completely controlled manor, decelerating the energy from the impact and reducing the final trauma levels.
  • Increased airflow and ventilation. AEROCORE™ Koroyd®'s hollow cores allow fresh air in and heat from your head out. AEROCORE™ construction also enables more vents to be used in the Vantage Ski Helmet.
  • AEROCORE™ enables both weight and volume to be reduced.
  • The extra ventilation ensures fog-free vision when combined with a Smith Ski Goggle.

Smith AirEvac 2

When you wear a Smith Ski Goggle with a Smith Ski Helmet the vents along the top of the goggle will correspond with those in the helmet. The AirEvac 2 system generates maximum airflow, pulling warm, fog-causing air up and out of your Ski Goggles and through your helmet, leaving you with crystal-clear vision.


BOA® FS360 Fit System

Boa® Technology - the world's leader in closure systems - has produced this full 360 degree halo fit. It creates a 'floating' effect that eliminates hot spots and improves airflow. Ergonomically contoured, vertically adjustable, and with a micro-adjustable dial system for a great fit range that accommodates a beanie underneath.

Dual Regulator climate control

This ventilation system, lets you independently control the front and rear sections of the vents, allowing you to modulate your body temperature even in extremely cold conditions. By exhausting heat through the rear vents while maintaining a sealed front end, you can effectively cool down if needed and avoid the dreaded "ice cream headache".

Nanosilver Performance Lining

The Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet has a fully removable, machine washable lining, for perfectly cushioned comfort and a customisable fit. It has a Nanosilver treatment to keep your Ski Helmet clean and comfortable.

Smith Earpads

Provide a comfortable seal on even the stormiest days. Or remove them completely to maximise cooling. Chuck them in the machine on a cool wash when needed.

Goggle Clip

Just slide your Ski Goggle strap under the goggle clip and know that your Ski Goggles will still be there after sending it head-over-heels through powder.

Adjustable Chin Strap

Adjustable webbing straps allow you to tweak the fit of your Smith Vantage Ski Helmet. While the plush chin pad keeps you chafe-free all day long.

Smith Vantage MIPS
Friday, 23 March 2018  | 

Well designed helmet, light weight but solid make with snug fit and kept me warm even with -12 degrees celsius. Gave 4 stars as I felt it was a bit tight on the ears after a few hours of skiing. Excellent service from Escape2 as always with speedy delivery. Thanks !

Initial impressions
Friday, 14 December 2018  |  Andrew

I've purchased these gloves for 2 upcoming trips. Very impressed with the price and service from escape2. The gloves are great but yet to be tested properly. One thing to note is that I ordered large and the gloves are only just big enough for me. I don't consider myself to have very big hands so beware when choosing a size for you. Otherwise all great.

Love this jacket. The longer line and powder skirt are a great addition, especially as I will be using it for hiking as well as skiing.
It has a slimmer fit than the beta AR jacket, which makes it more flattering, whilst still allowing enough room to add plenty of extra layers without hampering movement.
Great shooping experience with Escape 2. Fantastic customer service.

Great product, service and price.

Another great product from Arc’teryx. The fit is trim, but not too tight, layers well and has an excellent warm to weight ratio.

Price and speedy service from Escspe2 is what I’ve come to expect from them, both are outstanding!

Tuesday, 4 December 2018  |  Chantelle

We’ve brought these coats for our children 2 years in a row now. They’re prefect for skiing, and they also use them for school, the orange colour is very bright so we definitely can’t lose them!. We normally buy them for the North Face store however Escape 2 came in at a very competitive price, the service was brilliant and very quick delivery, would definitely recommend to friends

Excellent layering piece.
Tuesday, 20 November 2018  |  Chris

This is an excellent layering piece. I have used it in our 'wonderful' Scottish climate for hiking and found it to be the perfect attribute to the layering system. On the hill, in typical autumn/winter conditions, I use it with a Polartech Powerdry baselayer and it worked very well during the steeper more difficult sections without being too warm. The quality and fit is usual Arc'teryx excellence. Slim fit but definitely room for winter baselayers. I have the Atom SL jacket too, which I use on top for extra protection/insulation when exposed to the elements up on the plateau. This proved to be a great combination. Beads the drizzle well, resists most of the wind and the side panels keep enough ventilation for difficult to beat temperature regulation. Very highly recommended, would definitely buy again. Only point of note, It is very slightly 'roomier' than the SL jacket, I may have fitted into a small for a closer fit or with the medium I could at least wear two layers underneath. Otherwise this will be my go-to set up from now on. This renders most of my other gear redundant it is that good. Big thanks to Escape2 staff for helping me get both Atom SL jacket and Vest, awesome, exactly what I needed.

The North Face Andes Jacket
Monday, 19 November 2018  |  Kelly

I bought this jacket for my 14 year old daughter. Despite it saying boys, it is also suitable for girls. A lovely warm jacket that is very much on trend at the moment. Her twin brother now wants one too! It originally arrived promptly but as I was not in a calling card was left. It was then quite tricky to have it redelivered-this was an issue with APC and not escape2. Once in receipt of the jacket it was nicely packaged and with a personal message on the invoice which was a lovely touch!
I would definitely order another one for my son if delivery was with Royal Mail, which can be collected from local sorting office if I am not in.
