A safety must-have.

The most valuable piece of climbing gear you have is between your ears. Protect yourself with the Black Diamond Women's Vector Helmet. This intuitive design features a vented polycarbonate shell that stands up to surprises from the climber you're belaying, and a micro-adjust ratchet lets you get the optimum fit when you're leading. At barely over eight ounces, the Vector adds a big safety factor to your vertical day without adding a bunch of weight.

Used and Abused

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this helmet because it's lightweight and low profile compared to the traditional hard top helmets. It won't last as long and isn't as durable, but it fits on your head instead of sitting on top, so it wont move around or get in the way.

Finally look good in a helmet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ok, so maybe not the most important factor but it definitely counts!

This helmet also fits really well and doesn't move around your head or block your eyesight or fall backwards. It's also so light that you'll quickly forget it's even there.

I have the glacier blue in a S/M (5'5" and 115 lbs with normal sized head - I think!).

Rad - not that durable.

    I love this helmet because of a few things...
    1. It's light so when you don't need it you forget it's there.
    2. It fits well and doesn't make you look too dorky.

    It's not very durable which makes me nervous about what would happen when I actually needed it. It dents easy even just in your pack and won't withstand any accidental dropping while hanging around the crag.

    Rad helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Before the Vector I had a half dome for about 3 years and constantly had trouble with it moving around while I was climbing. The vector is awesome, the ratchet adjustment is loads better than the wheel adjustment on the half dome. It's comfortable, light, fits well, has more noggin coverage and more EPS foam than the half domes.

    I also like to wear Buffs underneath my helmet because they keep my hair out of my face, this helmet easily fits a buff or a beanie underneath if needed.

    I'm 5'3" and bought the S/M.

    Rad helmet


      I bought this helmet a couple of weeks ago for climbing and I love it. I ordered a M/L and I probably should have ordered a S/M. I'm an average sized lady (5'4", 130lbs) with a medium sized head. However, with the adjustable head rachet, I can tighten it up enough so that it's not useless! But I would suggest measuring your cranium before ordering...

      My favorite feature is the head lamp clip! And let us not forget that it's ultra light!

      I haven't taken any solid hits to the head with it on (and let's hope I never do).
