it will save your dome

I was between sizes, ended up going up to the M/L…but I probably would have been ok with the S/M. There is plenty of adjustability in these helmets, so dialing in the perfect fit isn’t that hard.
it saved my dome twice on a recent climbing trip. Once when I smoked myself with an ice hammer, direct hit, right in the front. I thought for sure it would have cracked the light weight plastic, t my surprise, no damage and I didn’t lose any brain cells. And the second when a softball sized ice cranked my skull at a belay station.
Bottom line, its tough, looks great, light, and stays on your head. Plus its black diamond, come on.
