Helmets range from pure junk (think china knock-offs for $75) to high end, advanced protection (Shoei, Arai, 6d and some others). At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. I guess it all comes down to what you think your head is worth. More important than ratings (Snell, DOT, etc) which may or may not apply to off-road use, look for features like removable padding (cleaning & replacement), MIPS, custom cheek pads for a better fit, etc.

Three items I'd never skimp on: Helmets, knee protection and boots. They can be expensive, but surgery costs a lot more and recovery sucks.

I am looking for a safe Snell Rated Off Road Helmet any suggestions?
If you ride off-road whether you're on a dirt bike or ATV, the helmet is the most important piece of safety equipment you can invest in. Check this one, GMAX GM11S Helmet With Electric Shield, meets safety standards.

Nice helmet, I have a couple of dot-snell Mx style helmets I got at cycle gear, they look good and I never throw a leg over my bikes without one...
