I love the Meteor helmet. It's extremely light weight. The streamline padding is super comfortable. The Meteor is very easy to adjust, it has magnetic closure and a secure harness that cradles your skull nicely. In addition, it is really cool looking!!
I have used this helmet so much that I can put my headlamp on without taking the helmet off, headlamps easily fit around it and stay in place.
Highly recommend it. One thing you have to be careful of, not only with this helmet, but with any lightweight one, is to pack it properly for transport or on the approach. All lightweight helmets need to be carefully stored!
Absolutely love the Meteor!!!!

Since the Nomic first came out circa 2008 I have had the opportunity to use this incredible piece of engineering; from huge alpine climbs in AK, China, Kyrgyztan and the Peruvian Andes to very classic water fall ice climbs in the alps and the US.
I also have used these tools in multiple ice competitions, really hard mixed climbs and drytool routes.
Personally I can highly recommend them!! The way they swing into the ice, on different angles and different surface hardness make this tool the weapon of choice. Doesn't matter if you are beginner, intermediate or advance ice and/or mixed climber.
Petzl really thought about every single detail from the handle where you can change it from S/M/L hand sizes to the head of the tool where you can add or subtract weight. You can also add a hammer and a axe if you are going to play in the mountains where pitons and chopping ledges maybe in order for the day.
The only thing that is not super obvious on the tool is where to put the little cord in order to connect them with Alpine (bungee) leashes. This is located where the bottom trigger is. Once you inspect the different sizes and how to adjust that, you will easily find it.

All and all a superb tool. Honestly, I have tried many many other tools from different manufactures and the Nomic is by far the best.
Thanks Petzl for making such a great ice axe!!
