Why We Like The Capitan MIPS Helmet

We clip on the Capitan MIPS Helmet for our big wall pursuits. The low-profile suspension system cradles our head for all-day comfort. If our climber dislodges a hold while we're on a hanging belay, the EPS puck helps absorb crown impacts, while the MIPS technology fights against rotational forces from off-center collisions.


  • Rugged helmet for big walls and long projecting sessions
  • Hybrid construction for rough handling and chossy routes
  • EPP liner takes on multiple impacts
  • MIPS reduces rotational forces from angled collisions
  • Multiple ventilation ports allow optimal airflow
  • Adjustable webbing allows for a secure, customized fit
  • Integrated headlamp clips for sundown climbing
  • Item #BLDZ9EZ

Love it

Fits well, has a great place to put a headlamp and it feels great to know I have a good piece of gear on my head protecting me.

Great fit. Low profile. Can barely tell it’s there until it was needed then was glad after a rock from up top

Great helmet

Very comfortable and adjustable so I can put a hat underneath. Covers all the important parts of the skull for AT

All around great helmet!

Bought as a multidisciplinary helmet for backcountry skiing and climbing (ice and rock). Love it! Super comfy, light, and confidence Inspiring. Hoping to see more helmets with MIPS!

Great Helmet

Very comfortable and fits securely. I love that it has MIPS technology and a lot of venting for warm days in the sun. The buckle is incredibly secure (which I realized is not something to take for granted after using the Petzl Meteor). 10/10 recommend!

Light weight and comfortable

A great mix of everything I wanted in a helmet. Light weight with a hard shell and not terrible in the heat. Sets the standard to what I look for in a helmet.

Perfect for rock and ice

Vents well, but also retains warmth. Glad to see climbing helmets have mips in it now. Not sure how much it’s help, but nice to have for added protection.

Solid helmet, short strap

This is a great helmet. I have only climbed in it once, but it is super stable on my head. No side to side or back to front movement. I like the full coverage of the ABS so I don't have to baby it as much. My only complaint is that the strap that the chin strap connects to is just a little too short. No matter how I slide the buckle along it the strap is still not below my ear so it rubs my ear lobe. If there was a way to extend this strap a little bit I would for sure give this helmet 5 stars. Once it's on and I'm climbing I didn't really notice it, but if I think about it I could get annoyed.
