Does as promised.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It protects my head from rocks and ice, it's durable, it's cheap. Seems a lot more durable than the ultralight varieties that are around.

You can't remove the pads to wash them though - this is becoming more and more of an issue - gross.

For the lady friend!

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

I purchased this helmet in Brown for the lady and she loves it. We have dreadlocks and so it's hard finding a helmet that will fit tight enough to make it safe while climbing, not to mention being comfortable.

This helmet is perfect. She uses an Icebreaker beanie underneath to keep warm during colder months and took it for the first test drive in Rumney this past weekend. I dropped a quickdraw while leading and although it didn't hit her, we were glad she had it on none the less. (My bad, I know)

Better safe than sorry!

Great helmet, cool style, and decent price make this a winner.

Thank you!

For the lady friend!

Dome shield.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Looks cooler than competition. Has clasps for a headlamp. Is easy to forget when on.
Only con is that it needs a custom sticker in order to not get it confused with others', no matter what color you get.

Very Legit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet is a very affordable and comfortable and light weight, when im climbing at the gorge just about every climber I come across has one of these on. Throw a goat sticker on it and you have just about everything you could ask for from this helmet, has clamps pm the side if you want to put a go pro or a head light on. I can put this thing on and wear it from literally sun up to sundown and not notice its even there. Easy spin adjuster on the back to tighten and loosen the fit. I would buy this helmet again!

Noggin: Protected

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I ordered one of these as a birthday gift for my brother. He and his wife are just getting into climbing outdoors, and we were doing a trip to Colorado where we would be climbing outdoors every day. Every area we were going to had issues with rock fall - either from people setting top ropes, or from crumbly/loose rock on the route. So, he needed a helmet for the trip.

First day of use, a tiny rock got knocked down from the top, and hit him right on the head. The rock was tiny enough that I don't think it would've done much damage without a helmet, but it was nice to see that he wasn't tempted to run out of the way or something while belaying because he knew he was protected.

I'm obsessed with safety, and don't understand why anyone would climb or belay without a helmet. Most times, I want people who are just hanging out at the bottom of a climb to put their helmets on!

No complaints about it being uncomfortable or heavy or anything like that.

Overall pleased

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Use it for my rock climbing trips. Serves its purpose well, no complaints. Like the inner styrofoam cushioning which some climb helmets dont have. Good and sturdy.

A bit small...

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

Let me start by saying I like this helmet because it is light and easy to adjust.
However I feel like it runs small and it doesn't nestle down on your head.

Forgot I had it on

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Fits great and is comfy. I tend to put it on in the morning and keep it there till I?m done. I hope I never find out how it holds up to falling rocks.

Looks good, fits well.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

No complaints about this helmet. It fits well and it provides great protection. Had more than a few loose rocks bounce right off.

Easy fit, superb protection

Sick of helmets that take forever to get a snug fit? Want an all around climbing helmet for winter and summer? The half Dome has you covered, literally. This is one of the most comfortable helmets for its price range. In addition to the price range, the general protection the helmet provides is top notch. This is an especially good choice for an extra helmet to have around to ensure whoever is belaying you is always protected from rock fall and the unexpected.

Easy fit, superb protection
This helmet is a great choice!!!
