You're best bet is to contact Scott directly. It may still be under warranty - even if it isn't, you may be able to get a replacement or repair at no charge...if they stand behind their product that is...

"Getting the right fit is the most important factor to consider when buying a Snowboarding Helmet:
1. Measuring Tape. Your helmet size is determined by the circumference of your head. Wrap a measuring tape around your head to get your helmet size.
2. Align the front of the helmet above your eyebrows and hold both straps until the helmet fits well.
3. Make sure there are no unwanted gaps between the helmet lining and your head. The back of the helmet should not touch the back of your neck.
4. The helmet should fit snug and nicely.
5. Try one of your favorite pairs of Snowboard Goggles and make sure they fit properly on your helmet.
Please note that the producers of helmets all have different ideas on the shape of a human head. Although the size might be right, the shape of the helmet might be different from the shape of your head."
everal manufacturers of crampons for hiking/glacier travel. You want something w/ 6-10 Pt's, some can even be configured so they hinge in the middle. The bright side is the price of this class of crampon, they're a lot cheaper that the type you would climb a frozen waterfall. Should be any where from 39.95-100.00 and can be found at Campmor, EMS, Seirra Tradingpost. A word of caution...Do not attempt to climb vertical ice with a cheap pair of crampons, even if they have front points. I foolishly almost fell off some steep ice in the Whites when the points (both) sheared off my left crampon. If your not going to climb try to buy a pair w/out the forward facing front points. Hiking down tired your a lot more likely to hook frontpoints and trip, it'll happen every time you don't pick your foot up high enough. Also, get an ice axe, affords extra confidence when traveling up/down steep terrian. Enjoy Your Winter Hiking
