Harnessing many of the high-tech features found on Oakley's top-of-the-line MOD 5, in a more affordable and streamlined package, the MOD 3 is an all-mountain suited helmet that's literally packed to the brim with adjustability. Featuring Oakley's innovative Modular Brim System, the MOD 3 comes out of the box with multiple brim options to dial in a proper fit regardless of what model, or even brand, of goggles you currently have. And with its removable liner and fully adjustable Boa fit system, testers were able to go a step further in fine tuning their sizing and style preferences from the park to the backcountry.

Tested + Approved 2018 presented by evo.com

Since its inception four years ago, Tested + Approved has swiftly and proudly established itself as snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. With an endless sea of gear to choose from—bindings and boots, helmets and goggles, gloves, layers, and everything in between—it's not getting any easier to know where to spend your money when everything seems to be touted as the next great innovation in performance and technology. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word.

We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique it. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. What remains is a collection of the industry’s most proven products; all of it Tested + Approved.
