One of the most ventilated helmets on the market.
Petzl designed its Meteor Climbing Helmet to keep you safe while you climb, but placed a premium on comfort and ventilation. The first thing you might notice is how many ventilated slits there are for maximum air circulation to help cool your head on the hottest days on the mountain. Petzl used polycarbonate for the shell in order to keep it both lightweight and ready to absorb impact, and the helmet's polystyrene liner is breathable, comfortable, and tough as they come. The Meteor is designed to sit stably on your head, with a flat headband that cinches around your brain bucket for a killer fit and folds into the helmet for easy travel. The adjustable chin strap has a magnetic buckle so you can clip it on with one hand. Petzl also designed the Meteor to be compatible with a headlamp or Petzl's Vizion eye shield, so you'll be ready to send whatever route comes your way, even if it's dark outside.

Light and Fast
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have used the Meteor on a few climbs now and have been very happy with it! It is extremely light weight and as product of that it is very comfortable. The Meteor has excellent ventalation, keeping your head cool, that prevents sweat from running down your eyes. These factors make it so that you will always bring it and wear it.
Which you should! I was on a class 3 ridge (Kelso Ridge) and was caught under rockfall from another climber. I was able to jump to safety, but I was super glad I had this on my head. This helmet makes you have no excuses to bring it! You never know what's going to happen!
It loses a star from not being as stylish as other helmets (factors in the decision to wear it), as well as it doesn't cover much of the back of your head.
This is a great helmet and works amazingly. Super, super light weight. Protect your brain!

I really like this helmet. I usually have a hard time finding a helmet that fits my small head but the Size 1 helmet fits perfect. I don't notice it or feel super goofy in it either. This helmet is adjustable in the back which makes for a nice snug fit. The buckle on it is magnetic so it is very easy to put on and take off but is always secure on your head. I definitely recommend this helmet!
