Just ordered another one for this year. Just very comfortable teaching skiing in it. When you spend a great deal of time walking around with students before they are ready for the chairlift and yet enough protection in case you get knocked over, etc. Also, I actually wore it the second half (when it got cold) of my touch football season. Was really perfect for that. Last year I also used it as protection on winter hikes below the treeline. Having had a few concussions I just always wear some type of protection but do not always need the level provided by a helmet.
