Unanswered Question

I need a climbing hard hat that is compliant...

Posted on

I need a climbing hard hat that is compliant with OSHA 1910 and 1926 for my job. Is this particular hard hat compliant with those regulations? And if not where would I find one that is?

Feels good but doesn't hold up.

I was require/requested to use this make and model as part of our Ropes Course. They appeared to fit well and were comfortable at first. As time progressed (only 4 or 5 uses), the back adjustment piece has fallen apart and has had to be replaced 2 twice in the 6 months I have been using it. Unfortunately we have at least 3 dozen plus of these helmets that are all having the same issue. I am presently looking for my placement for the helmet after just one season.
The head lamp clip issue as stated below is also a additional valid concern.
Last issue is that the adjustment dial is not holding and the helmet tends to side backwards and slip off.
Any suggestions on a good reasonably priced replacement helmet feel free to share.

No bells and whistles, simple.

I got this helmet 2.5 years ago for 3 reasons, it is light, it is compatible with most of my headlamps, and it provides decent universal protection. Depending on the type of climbing I am doing I usually wear this cap in the spring summer and fall. I must digress I do not do much technical climbing anymore, as I focus on mountaineering and quick accent, but this helmet FOR THE PRICE is decent. it gets the job done. This helmet does not have any frills and as many have said it is not incredibly durable, but will it protect your head from debris? Well I have taken a lot of debris in my helmet and it has protected me. It ventilates well and keeps me relatively cool in the heat. It is also easy to adjust and take on and off. If your looking for something simple, inexpensive and can protect you then I would definitely consider this lid. If you want something with all of the bells and whistles, then do yourself a favor and increase your budget and look higher.

Decent helmet; has some flaws

This helmet served me well for the time I had it, but it didn't take much for it to start falling apart. It was given to me for christmas two years ago and only got used about 4-5 times before the adjustable plastic piece on the back of the helmet fell apart and it became unusable. Before that adjustment broke it fit pretty comfortably on my head. The only other flaw was that the headlamp clips were somewhat difficult to use. You had to pry them open to slip in the headlamp strap. I have since purchased the Black Diamond Half Dome helmet and am in love with it. The construction of that helmet just feels better and more durable and the fit is even more comfortable and snug on my head. The headlamp clips are also great on the BD helmet. I couldn't be happier. This CAMP helmet was good at the time for the money, but I wouldn't recommend it after using other helmets from Petzl and BD.

Good design - weak construction

I want to like this helmet. For $60, I would expect it to hold up better.

After maybe 5 times out, the headlamp clips are falling off.

The helmet scuffs very easily and looks like it has been put through years of abuse.

It is comfortable.

Can't quite hack it...

I really liked the Armour at first but it just didn't hold up to the abuse. It is crazy comfortable and a huge step up from Black Diamonds un-updated half dome. It doesn't get too hot and the cushy padding is great. Over time though the rear adjustment knob has stripped so i cant really cinch it down on my head so it often tilts back. The headlamp clips are great and easy to use but they have a habit of popping off and getting lost. Many a friend of mine has this helmet and I doubt any have all their clips. If you are strapped for cash and you aren't going to be putting it through hell like I do, then its not a bad helmet and certainly more comfortable than the old BD Half Dome which is at a comparable price

Can't quite hack it...

I have a more oval head. Bell, Petzl, etc...

Posted on

I have a more oval head. Bell, Petzl, etc don't fit as they are tight fore and aft and loose on the sides. I've read reviews of other CAMP helmets that might indicate they run oval (eg the Pulse). any feel as to the fit of this helmet? Are there other climbing helmets that are light and not round?

Responded on

I have an oval head and found the Pulse to be very comfortable. I also found the Petzl Meteor to fit pretty well, more so than the cheaper Petzl helmets.

Nothing bad to say about this one.

When I decided to buy this helmet the price and the colour was most important to me - after all, it's my first helmet, i had no idea what to look for. Imagine how dissappointed I was when the green was sold out, and i had to get the blue one because I needed it right away... But I'm getting the green for the missus instead ;)
I like the adjustment on this one, suitable for all temperatures.

Nothing bad to say about this one.

Light and comfortable

I've taken it canyoneering now several times. I don't even realize that I'm wearing it. I haven't worn it in extreme heat yet, but it seems to ventilate really well.

Climbing in Red Rock, NV - amazing

Solid all around helmet

I've had this helmet for about 6 months now and worn it climbing in Echo Cliffs, Joshua Tree, and Red Rock. I'm definitely satisfied with it - it is adjustable, lightweight, vents well, and is comfortable.

I'm not going to give it 5 stars because I don't think it is the best helmet on the market. There is nothing that makes it markedly better than other similarly priced helmets (like the Petzl Elios - $65, Mammut Skywalker 2 - $60). All three helmets have similar materials, weights, adjustability, and prices. And you can't go wrong with any of them. But I chose the Camp Armour and I get to stand out a little more with a two colored helmet that is a little less common than the Elios while keeping my head safe. Can't go wrong with the Armour - Solid helmet.

Lite and comfy

I bought this because of the lite weight, one of lightest on the market I think. It's not the easiest to adjust to fit, but once you have it fit to your head size it's an easy on and off. Just a quick turn of the ratchet on the back and it's snug. Also breathes well to help keep you cool. Sits kinda high on your head, so it makes me look even goofier then normal...
