already saved my head from me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this helmet and how well it fits, even when wearing a hat under it. easy to adjust with one had and feels better on my head then other petzl helmets that I have used.

As expected from BD

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Yet to find BD climbing gear that I don't like or trust. Great helmet for sport or trad outdoor climbing, and the adjustable sizing is awesome for letting people borrow it (if you can lend it out without having withdrawals!)

Solid light weight helmet.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This helmet is a solid choice for a climbing helmet, its not the lightest you can buy but its fully adjustable to allow many people of various head sizes used it. Its great to have when you have large parties going out and you may need to trade helmets back and forth to make sure everyone, belayer and climber are covered. Its great to have for those times when your climbing in a chimney and move up to fast and slam your head into a rock. Its great getting a light bump as oppose to a open head cut?.:)

Lightweight

This helmet is really light. Gave it as a gift but the family member loves it

Matt, a fellow photog, and I solo'd a short pitch adjacent to the stiff crack route shown behind him to try and capture a friend's flash ascent. No biggie though: he wore his Half Dome.

Good Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet is very versatile. Easy to dial in for different sized heads or when wearing a fleece cap underneath. Very light and comfortable. Great protection from impact to the top of the head. Side protection is significantly less. Great on Ice, Rock, Mountain Ops. Good colors. Headlamp clips work great. I've used it caving and it kept my BD Spot headlamp very secure.

Wonderfully comfortable and adjustable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You can wear this all day and forget you have it on. The easy adjuster dial makes it simple to add or remove a thick knit cap underneath, even mid-climb!

Best Bucket for your Brain

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bad boy never fails in any condition. Ice, rock, zombie apocalypse it's got you covered. Able to adjust the helmet to keep my dome nice and warm with a hat in the ice but cool in the desert without the liner. Chin strap is quite comfortable and doesn't rub or bother when your preoccupied by the crux. Next to your belayer, this tough little guy will give you peace of mind.

Good Helmet

Comfortable, well built, and light. The adjustment straps and dial make it a breeze to get it tuned in to the perfect fit.

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A great no-nonsense helmet. Very comfortable, easy to adjust with the dial in with or without wearing a liner. Easy to wash. Very durable and good looking.

Comfortable, Light, and Durable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have been able to wear this all day and be comfortable in it. With or without a liner underneath, the ability to adjust it in the back allows it to fit many different layering options for your head. Not the lightest helmet but definitely durable for everyday use. Pretty pleased with it and will continue to buy these once mine bites the dust.

Responded on

This review sold me on the Helmet. Received it about a month ago, used it several times, and can vouch for the fact that it is in fact 'Comfortable, Light, and Durable'. Great to have on for extended periods of time. Breathes well, my head never got overly hot. Helmet looks great ,aesthetically too. Clips included to secure a headlamp for evening climbing and shennanigans.
