Is this helmet z359 ansi approved?
Is this helmet z359 ansi approved?
I do not believe so. It carries the following certification: Standard EN 12492
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Months after I bought it, and after countless climbing cancellations on the part of my friends, I finally got to wear my Mammut Skywalker 2. What can I say? It fits well, the adjustable buckle works much like my bike helmet and allowed me to fit a beanie under it for the chill in the morning. I do wish it was slightly more oval shaped, but i probably just have an odd-shaped head.
Not one size fits all
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've had a problem finding a helmet that fits properly, This felt good when I tried it on but after a few climbs and a thousand adjustments, I just couldn't get it to not slide down my face.
That being said, the quality and features are up to Mammuts high standards. My friend I sold it to loves it.
I have one, bought this one for my wife.
Comfy, easy size adjustment. I have a big head, and it adjusts easily to fit over my heavy wool beanie. My wife tried the petzl, but couldn't get it to fit right, so we returned it, and got this one, since we had mine to try on her.
Mammut Skywalker 2 Climbing Helmet
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It's fully adjustable and light. Protects my melon from bumps and small rocks.
Great, inexpensive head protection
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought this for a recent trip to some of the CO 14ers. Put this on when doing Class 3/4 scrambles and didn't think about it again. Fit well and adjusted easily, even though I'm usually a hard to fit head. Once it was in place, it's light enough that I forgot I was wearing it. Easily fit over a medium thickness cap as well. Have found the durability to be just fine. No side cracking as other people have reported. All-in-all, very happy with the purchase.
So far I love this helmet. Its super comfortable and I forget I have it on some times. I wore is for a few hours while doing a route at zion and it was just perfect.It fits fine over a ball cap also.
Had a rock hit my brother on the head. This helmet probably saved his life. A great buy. Gets a bit sweaty, but thats to be expected.
Pretty Darn Comfy
I've had the helmet only 3 months, but I can't say anything negative about it. It is light weight, darn comfy, and the chin strap is the most comfortable I've found (I've used Petzl and Edelrid, too). The only undesirable thing about it is the padding inside. Not because of how it feels (it's like an amazing pillow on your head), but that it is open cell foam that collects all the sweat that comes from my. I have to literally ring the sweat from the head pads after a hot day on the course. However, it all velcros in and out, so I can easily remove and wash. Overall an awesome, attractive, reliable, comfortable helmet. highly recommend.
I have had this helmet a bit over a year and it has already developed a crack right at one of the rivets where the chin strap connects. I do not climb and have used this mostly on high ropes course in belay situations. No accidents, no falls and no impacts... may have been a defect? It is a comfortable helmet and very inexpensive but did not last.
Do this helmets have any recgonized Safety...
Do this helmets have any recgonized Safety standard ratings.
I dont know, but...3 of my helmt are broken in just 3 months!
I dont like them at all!
Mammut (being European) follows the GS Mart Certificate. The Euro standard of safety for climbing gear
2 years going strong!
I've been using this helmet for almost two years now. The fit as everyone says is a little high on the noggin, but it's great when your ice climbing and you can tilt it down some and it'll still protect you skull while looking up. Gotta be able to dodge those ice chunks!
Someone had said the padding on the inside could get a little funky, I personally haven't had that problem. Overall, for a helmet that I take out almost every weekend, I'm seriously impressed that it's still in great shape!
Breaks easily when side-loaded in pack!!
This helmet slips back on my head easily. Also, I owned the model for 3 years and had 2 of them break from side loading, even though I was really careful when packing it. Honestly....it a HELMET....it shouldnt be so hard to protect it from breaking when its off your head. Helmets should be designed to be robust, not just when you are wearing them on the mountain, but on your way to the mountain as well. I haven't found a good replacement, but I am really disappointed this thing broke in the same way twice!! What's worse, is to discover it and wonder how long it has been broken.
Great trad helmet
This has only shielded me from tiny pebbles so far, and hopefully nothing bigger travels into my head in the future. I own the black one, I was concerned it would get hot climbing in the desert, but it ventilates so well that I don't notice the color adding to any heat. Forget it's on my head frequently which is great. Awesome colors, light weight, comfortable chin strap.
Couldn't ask for more on a recent mountaineering trek.
Good Helmet so far
Only complaint is that it sits a bit high on the head. Otherwise, comfortable, lightweight, and breathes well. Pretty happy with this purchase.
not bad, not great
i liked the helmet for style and fit, however the adjuster wheel for the back strap has very fine teeth and stipped within the first few days of use. found the chin strap easy to use and comfy, rides a little high on the head. The red mammoth logo was serious hit with the little ones...
Great helmet, comfortable, stylish, excellent price, light weight and well made for a china product. Picture is of my wife and my little girl also wearing one of Mammuts youth helmets.
