    Solid All-Around Helmet

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    What can I say? It works. Comfort is never a factor when I am deciding whether or not to slap this thing on. I have climbed in this in days that were upwards of 90 degrees and did not find it to be suffocating. A good selection of styles lets you pick a color you like so that you are always styling while on the rock. The adjustment wheel works great and allows you to adjust the size on the fly. The best part about these? The price.



    In terms of value, these helmets cannot be beat.

    Solid All-Around Helmet

    Simple yet Effective

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This isn't the fanciest with all the high end features on it, but it definitely gets the job done. I typically look weird and like I have a mongoloid head in pretty much every other helmet I've tried. This design is simple, and it has a pretty low profile which i like a lot because i feel like i look normal. And when ya feel good, ya climb good...i think. Either way, its got good ventilation, and is easily adjustable with the wheel in the back. It packs down nicely, and it gets the job done. I've managed to bang my head off numerous rocks and even caught some small rock fall with my dome. I can't tell you how many times I've thought, man im glad i was wearing this helmet!

    Simple yet Effective

    Don't buy this for the looks...

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Yes, this is a standard, bare bones, climbing helmet. Not many bells and whistles on this one. Will only truly protect you from rock fall from above. This was my first climbing helmet, but after my climbing accident last year I am ready to invest in a more protective dome shell. Don't get me wrong, this helmet is adequate for the job. However, if you are serious about climbing and spend a lot of time doing so, upgrade to a full foam helmet that protects more than just the top of your skull.

    Don't buy this for the looks...

    Comfortable and light

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've taken this helmet to Smith, RR, Jtree, Leavenworth, Squamish and Index, where it has done an acceptable job throughout. It breathes well, looks nice and will protect your noggin. My only problem with this climbing helmet(and all climbing helmets for that matter) is how much bigger it makes your head. I think my next helmet will be a foam style helmet.

    GREAT LID

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great helmet! I've used it a ton the past 6 months over the summer and fall throughout many many hours in the crags around VA and WV. This thing is a DEAL! It fits perfectly and breaths well so your noggin doesn't sweat too much... This is a great helmet for anyone, from beginners to the experienced. My employer bought a ton of these things after hearing my testimony about them. They're super tough and durable. They are also smooth so you can stick a goat on the side! Always a plus!! Overall, a fantastic helmet at a fantastic price! Well worth the money!

    Totally solid

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a good helmet. It's pretty light and (importantly) the fit is excellent. If it feels a little strange, grab the crank wheel on the back and pull it down; it should fit quite snugly. Colors are great also.

    Good Effective Helmet

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I got this helmet for a hike / climb up Mt Ritter in the Sierra Nevada. The hike involved traversing a steep glacier and class 4 climbs with scree and loose rock. A helmet was a must. I picked up the Black Diamond helmet because it was a good price and Black Diamond has a great reputation. The first thing I noticed was that it was light and fit without moving or sliding around. I sweat a lot and I was worried about that. The helmet is well ventilated and I never noticed a problem with excessive sweating. Luckily I didn't have to test out its resistance to rock falls. No rocks hit me. I loved the weight it was so light that I really didn't notice much when it was on my head. Even after hours it never got heavy or felt like it was a burden. Combine that with the great price and this helmet seems to be a great addition to your mountain adventures.

    It's a helmet!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Used this helmet for a trip up Mt Rainier. Fit well with easy adjustments for thicker or thinner hats. I mounted a GoPro to the front portion of the helmet just about where a headlamp sits. After about 6 hours of wearing the helmet with the GoPro attached I was getting a pretty significant pain under where my GoPro was mounted and I was very happy when I removed it. All in all a solid piece of gear.

    Great helmet for big-headed fellas

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is my first climbing helmet, and I was initially concerned that it would not fit my over-sized noggin (I'm 6'4'' with a disproportionately large head). I am happy to say that, not only did this helmet protect me from a couple of loose rocks in Squmish, BC over Labor Day weekend, I was cool and comfortable throughout the three days, as well. I especially enjoy how easily adjustable the chin strap is. I ordered the M/L size in Limestone and am psyched about how good it feels. I plan on having this helmet for years to come, regardless of hair length.

    Solid Helmet

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great helmet. I have used it for several multi-pitch climbs this year and so far my head is in tact. Although it is not the lightest helmet out there, which might be nice on longer multi-pitch days, it does the job and protects your head. The mechanism to tighten works great and the shape is comfortable on my head. I have used the head lamp clips and they also work well. All around great no frills helmet for a good price.

    Solid Helmet

    Does it's job

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this helmet as my first climbing helmet and I've been pretty happy with it.

    I ordered the Cafe color (which I don't think is available anymore) and a M/L size since I was right in between sizes according to the size chart. The helmet fits well, although even when tightened down snugly, doesn't seem to stay straight on my head, as it ends up tilting one way or the other. My other dislike of this helmet is that the overall structure of the helmet does seem a little flimsy in my opinion but not in a way that makes me feel unsafe at all; seams that if packed away too tightly or thrown around too much, the plastic would crack, especially on the area on the back of the neck. Although, even with all the scratches and bumps acquired, this has yet to happen!
    The helmet is light and does it's job at protecting your head from climbing/belaying hazards like smashing into the wall and falling rock. It is comfortable enough to wear all day and is breathable enough you don't feel like your head is hot and sweaty. The headlamp clips are convenient and work well too.
    Overall, a great first helmet and one of the more flattering ones, even if I do think $60 is a little on the high end for it.

    Does it's job

    Great all around helmet

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Throw it around, beat it up, smash your head a couple times, whatever, this helmet rolls with the punches and takes it like a champ. I have used it extensively mountaineering and doing some technical climbing as well, and I could not recommend it more. It gets 4 stars because the orange headlamp holders around the sides are not the best ones I have seen on a helmet of this sort.

    Won't use anything else

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    It's light. It's comfortable. It even looks good. Oh, it also protects your dome. It fits so well that I often don't even bother to take it off when I'm out of the danger zone. It's like an Audi for the price of a VW.

    Won't use anything else
