    Rad helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used this on multi pitches and belaying on sport climbs, and I have to say, this helmet is amazing. It is comfortable and fits my head well. I haven't taken an impact yet, but I am confident it will do its job well.

    no impacts yet....

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    solid fit, not heavy or intrusive... i got the grey, which is nice and discreet. It has NOT taken an impact yet and, hopefully, never will (fingers crossed) so i can't vouch for it's durability yet. haha! For the price, it's a fine helmet.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    This seems to be the gold standard for helmets.. if it fits your head. I needed a solid climbing helmet and didn't want to break the bank. I don't think I have an abnormally large head, but this helmet just didn't fit correctly. It sat very high on my head and I felt like it wouldn't give me the coverage that I needed while climbing. I sadly returned :(

    I love this helmet!

      Do you know why? Because the S/M size fits me properly. If this helmet fits you properly too, you will also like it. My last helmet was too big at it's smallest adjustment. And that was the only adult size, the child size was too small. I didn't know better when I bought it. Nothing like a helmet flopping around forward and back as you climb to annoy you. When I used this new helmet this last weekend, I didn't even notice it. That is the sign of a good helmet.

      Great Helmet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Ive been using this helmet for almost a year now & I have no complaints. It fits great & has plenty of room to adjust. Sits nice & low on your head & fits easily under a hood. Has perfect spot to mount any Gopro mounts etc. Holds my BD headlamp like a champ. If you're thinking about buying this helmet, just do it! You wont regret it. Especially for the money!

      Great for Tree climbing!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My kids and I use these for tree climbing. These helmets just seem to mold perfectly around your head. The straps are super comfortable and the outer shell seems to be very durable. They've definitely saved us a time a to while ascending trees. As with anything, if it's not comfortable, you're not going to wear it. These helmets fit perfectly and are super comfortable to wear all day long.

      Where haven't you seen the helmet!? This helmet is your intro into ALL things climbing and what-not. It does it all. Canyoneering, Rock, Ice, Alpine, hanging Christmas tree lights and of course, the versatility of turning it into a beer dispenser with some imagination and some zip ties. For the quality, safety and price point, go with the most recognized and most used helmet in the mountains....The Half-Dome.

      My customer uses this for all weather conditions - snow, rain, heat, etc. this thing is his best friend. He's made it his own by repping the goat and mounting his go pro as well.
      Quality helmet for the price and great protection.
      Check him out in action when he used it for his summit of Mt. Baldy and email me if I can help get you the outfitted for your adventures as well.

      Simple and effective

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      A great, simple climbing helmet that is the standard for many. It wears well, has a good suspension system, and doesn't look too nerdy. My only complaint was with my first one; the foam padding is starting to de-glue... but the thing was definitely abused. All in all though, I'd prefer this helmet over similarly priced ones from any other brand.

      Awesome light and a good price

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Fits true to size. I have a very small head, and the small fit excellently. The adjustable strap allows for a perfect fit with or without a beanie on. Very small so most hoods can go over it. I have a Mamut shell and the hood won't go over my other helmets, but fits over this. I think for the price you can't do any better. The headlamp clips aren't amazing, but function as intended and stay out of the way otherwise.

      Also I will say very light. I don't like climbing with a helmet but for big wall / trad it often times becomes a necessity and this helmet is barely noticeable.

      I didn't see any indication if this helmet...

      I didn't see any indication if this helmet is certified as CE EN 12492 or UIAA 106?

      I'm in between sizes in nearly everything. Any recommendations for someone with a 21 7/8 head?...I would like to use it both for summer and winter (with and without a beanie underneath).
