  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

great helmet, extremely cheap, even more if you buy it on sale. only con is that it is hard to adjust right so that it doesnt tilt to the side. i ve seen this happen to a lot of people that own this helmet.

Comfortable and fits securely.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was skeptical about buying a helmet online. (I've been having poor luck purchasing a new kayaking helmet this way.) But the sizing chart was accurate and it fits perfectly. A lot of the credit goes to the design: The headband and strap adjustments allow it to be fit well. I can set it up to stay put, not roll back, and it's still COMFORTABLE! Good design Petzel! Very happy with it.

Great helmet

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great helmet, more comfortable than the BD Half Dome. It's a few $$ more, but worth it.

Does the job

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I worked at summer camp as head of the high ropes program and these are the helmets we used for anything that had to do with them, they were comfortable, lightweight and durable. We also did night high ropes where I would have to wear my headlamp and the clips on this helmet kept it in place. Also these helmets they have vents so hot days it can be nice.

Great noodle case

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lightweight, comfortable, adjustable venting is nice and works well. Adjustable ear straps are comfortable. Nothing negative to say... other than the colors are kind of pastel-ish. The blue is like a teal/sky blue... and the orange looks like that foam, Circus peanut candy. At least you won't lose them at the crag since they are ugly enough to stand out from the surroundings.

Looks Sweet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My bud just got this and I got to check it out and I love it! I have not used it on the mountains yet but I will say it is stylish if none the less but more importantly it is very sturdy!

in work

I'm using it not just for sport but for work too. it is a very strong helmet!

Great Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Petzl Elios is a great helmet to keep your noggin intact. There isn't a climb where I'm not wearing a helmet these days, and this is the one I swear to. I like that the helmet has venting options and is highly adjustable to your head. This helmet can also take a beating. Mines taken a few hits on the sides just from bonking it around while climbing. Overall, the Elios is a great helmet to have and I will replace mine if ever necessary.

Seneca Helmet Aftermath

Seneca Helmet Aftermath

While the helmet is great for protection from small falling rocks from above, it's really pretty terrible for side impact. In a recent fall at Seneca, I banged my head on the way down and the plastic support dug into the side of my head. Perhaps more pressing, the helmet failed to prevent a concussion and I was unconscious for roughly a minute after the fall. So, buy a foam helmet if you want side impact protection.

Responded on

I am sorry for your inury. I am gald you were not injured any worse than you were. It looks like the foam in your helment cracked, possibly preventing your head from the same fate. I understand a concussion is caused by our brains rattling inside our skulls on impacts like you took. I am not a physicit, but I wonder if one inch of foam can declerate an impact like you took between rock and brain to prevent any concussion. I have read recent articles questioning any climbing helmet's ability to prevent injury in the type of impact you took. I also question whether foam can protect against falling shards of rock. I for one am happy I have ABS plastic, over foam, over my head, when the big choss flies and I am trying to concentrate on my leader. The bloody support concerns me, but I also wonder if that fact that it held firm enough to dig into your head held the helmet firm enough for the foam to crack where it did. Did you show the doctors this helmet and if so what did they say? Did they say you were lucky to be wearing a helmet or that it was inadequate? I do not work for Petzl. I do think they put a lot of thought and engineering into their products. I wear and am very familiar with this helmet. I do thank you for your review and opinion. It will help all of us in the BC customer community buy an appropriate helmet for the different dangers we face in the different situations we place ourselves. I am again sorry for your injury. If you find by your research a better helmet for all things rock climbing, please let us know. Very respectfully. Brad
