Can't Argue with 75+ Reviews and 5 Stars

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This helmet is comfy, easily adjustable and does the job. Really can't go wrong here.

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.

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

Love it.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wear a 7 and 3/8ths baseball hat and the M/L fits great. Some helmets can be painful but this helmet feels like you have a pillow wrapped around your head. You will not find a better helmet at the same price.

best helmet under $60.00

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The newly redesigned BD Half Dome is a great helmet, at a great price. Weight and ventilation is not all that dissimilar from helmets twice its cost. The new harness is simple and comfortable, making it an all around good investment. Climbing gear is expensive, all of us living in reality acknowledge this. This is a helmet, it's PPE so yes its important, but its so important that federal regulations require it meet the same specifications as a $130 Petzl. If you like Black Diamond this is another example of the gear you've come to expect from that manufacturer. The head lamp retention clips are very good, your light is going nowhere. I purchased this for search and rescue application, it has met my own rigorous personal expectations and I have no complaints.

The Standard for Helmets

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

Was just out at Bank's Lake where the walls can disintegrate on you, and let me say this helmet made me feel secure and took a couple dings while belaying. Even with the heat we were experiencing, wearing this made little difference to my comfort, but I am positive this has already saved me from a nasty gash in the first day I wore. Plus, the ease of adjustment meant folks without a helmet could easily throw on when on a particularly chossy route.

Cannot recommend enough wearing this, at least while you are belaying. No excuse with a comfortable, adjustable, affordable, and durable helmet like this.

I like it

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

Particularly the ease of adjustability when switching thickness of head insulation ...much easier than other mountaineering helmets I've used

Awesome and affordable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Plenty of reviews already tell how great this is. Honestly, it's hard to beat at the price point. Comfortable, simple and about as stylish as one of these helmets can be.

For the money it can't be beat. I like it better than some of the more expensive helmets that I have tried.

Great helmet

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

Solid fit. Quick adjust is an easily gripped dial. Good color. Runs neck and neck with the old Petzl Elios. You will not be disappointed.

Great Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this helmet regularly and love it. It's lightweight, yet durable, and extremely easy to adjust. It has a nicer aesthetic than some other brands, and works great. Even though this is the lower-end Black Diamond helmet, I regularly forget that I'm wearing it during a climb.

Great Lightweight helmet for the price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this as my first climbing helmet. Works great, leaves me with great range of motion, does not obstruct my vision at all, and is lightweight. I may upgrade to a more fancy one at some point, but for the price its a great quality helmet.

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super lightweight, good for the price. It sits a little bit high on my head, but that doesn't affect the functionality at all.

BD quality and performance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Good fit and ease of use. Does not obstruct movement when close to the rock. Full range of motion.
