I usually wear a helmet for the first month or two of every season and then invariably lose it somewhere (take it off at destination, forget to pick it up on return) or drop it (at which point it is technically no longer guaranteed to provide any safety because internal integrity is compromised, so why wear it at all?). I'm hoping that with the pouch in my backpack/panier that it'll be easier to keep track of.

I've survived MUCH biking without a helmet but I've had enough close calls that I do feel a lot more comfortable with one on. I mean when riding on Prospect over the interstate overpass with speeding cars on one side, a 6 inch curb on the other, and those evil drainage gates in your "swerve path"....there's definitely a lot of fatal potential scenes playing out in the imagination.

..Because a compromised hemlet is still likely to work better than nothing?

Yah, but if I think that way there's no incentive to buy a new one. :)

Mostly it's just an excuse for forgetting. :)
