Excellent for price

Over the years, I've learned Black Diamond tends to put lots most affordable and comfortable gear at low prices (relatively). That being said, when I started using my Half Dome I was a bit wary of how it would field considering it is possibly one of the more inexpensive of the climbing helmets. Boy was I wrong! This helmet is light enough that I do not feel it on my head and it fits perfectly (I've got a rather big head). Looking at its safety, I've used this from rock climbing in the Front Range of Colorado, to mountaineering the mighty 14ers, to ice climbing and still this gear takes and takes abuse. I would like to note that the interior is a bicycle like safety foam, which I'm alright with, but for some more avid enthusiast looking for a more "climbing inspired" helmet the Petzl Elios might work a bit better. The ventilation is a little closed for my liking, but it gets the job done. All in all, for the price, comfortableness, and safety the Half Dome is a great investment for the beginner or intermediate climber.

best all-around helmet

I bought this helmet about a month ago and already i am sure it is the one and only helmet I will ever buy again. It fits right and the orange is feakin' sick, Im also a salt lake native so BD stuff is even better!

Decent helmet...

For the price it is a decent hard shell. Better than no helmet and easy to adjust for size. You won't break this one in a pack or by sitting on it.

Great Helmet

Love this helmet. Tried on lots of different one's from Arc, Camp, Petz, etc.... and the half dome was the only one that fit well no matter what was on my head. I have a pretty big head (71/2) and this was the only one that was still comfy with a heavy fleece hat or balaclava under it. Others were all too tight with layers on. If you have a small head this might not be quite as good for you, although it also had the easiest, quickest, smoothest adjustment ratchet. Would have given it 5 stars, except I have only climbed in it a few times, and I'm not sure how it will perform long-term, and it also is a bit spendy. For me it was well worth it. I hate headgear that it too tight, especially on all day climbs.

Fits like a helmet...

This is a great light weight helmet. I have a huge head, and with an added beanie (very thin) I can still fit in it. On very long alpine climbs you forget it even there! I've tried a few other higher priced helmets out there, and this one just can't be beat. If you're a mountaineer... this is the helmet for you.

Killer Helmet!

Like any person that gets new gear and can't use it yet, I wore it around the house for a few hours- don't judge me...everyone does it! Anyways, it is super comfy and super light. I actually fell asleep wearing it on the couch while watching the Price is Right. Man I miss Bob Barker.
