The BV2s is an expensive helmet but will be the last helmet you will buy.

I've had mine for 8 years and before it I had the BRP modular 3, I didn't like how tight it fit felt claustrophobic with it on worked great but to tight for my fat face.

Default Cat Crap

There is a product called "Cat Crap" that is a soap base product that comes in a small container that you can take with you. I apply it every morning before i leave the hotel and it basically stops all fogging of the glasses. The best part is when we stop at a bar or restaurant on the trail and i can walk in and not fog immediately upon entering. Try it. It works.

LASIK twice and still not 20/20 vision, huh? I would be PISSED, if that happened to me. Especially since the lasik done twice costs enough to have bought the BRP helmet many times over. Perfect vision with your glasses and no fogging what-so-everrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Dang!
LASIK would give you 20/20 for a while, but old eyes change constantly. LASIK doesnít solve aging any more than regular exercise, just slows it down a bit.

Kind of like tinnitus, being near-sighted is difficult to explain to those who donít know what itís like.

Good point about cost, but there are a lot of variables which make things like LASIK worth considering, not just money.

Iím glad that the BRP helmet works good for so many and will consider it if I ever need to replace my current helmet.

Yes....good points....all of them. Well hereís hoping that you find a solution and can get out there safely...good vision is everything....especially at night.

Agreed!!! I have owned mine for four years and it has performed flawlessly (in service for 3 years actually.... we didnít get out last year). Everyone should consider that in a 20 or so year span, one who regularly sleds would buy multiples of different helmets. Chasing the latest gimmick or cool look etc. The cost of one BRP BV2S is less than all the others combined, and it actually works! Many, myself included, look to save money and be economical in all of our purchases. ... but the truest way to economy, is to buy once, and buy right!
Now I know.

So, after reading this thread, I am seriously considering buying a BV2S. Seems like it is the ultimate helmet for me. How do sizes run? I've read a bunch of other threads and many seem to say the helmet runs a bit big. What say you folks that have them?

I would recommend trying the helmet on at a Ski Doo dealership. Pre check the cost of the BV2S online and if the dealer is close to the online prices buy it from them.

BV2 and glasses didn't work for me. Never been cold in my MX helmet either. The statement above that someone got cold was user and fitment error. Get a real balaclava and goggles and that doesn't happen.

"Lost a sled" as in hit a three foot tall bank of snow and ice on a lake at night. To see white on white at night, I definitely should have had glasses on. BTW the sled only had 360 miles on it. Now, I usually wear one contact for close up and one contact for far away. Sounds crazy but after a month or so you get used to it and don't even think about it. I can see perfectly down the trail and at the GPS. No fogging with contacts!!

My Buddy had a BV2 helmet and it shattered in a crash. Never seen that before. Probably just unlucky and got a defective one. I used to want one but I wouldn't have that 'feel good" feeling if I bought one now.
