Very Lightweight

Love how lightweight this helmet is! I have an unusually small head and it fits me well.

Comfortable & cute

I got this helmet because I borrowed my friends and realized it was so much more comfortable than my other climbing helmet. It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything but it’s amazing to know that you’re safe. Highly recommend and love this color!

Reliable helmet

I bought this helmet for my GFs birthday. She loves it, it’s light weight, looks good stands out in poor conditions and I’ve seen falling chunks of ice shatter on the helmet with no complaints of pain from my her. Although it would be nice if BD included a place for women's pony tails on this helmet. All around great helmet

The color is better in person!

Helmet fits great and you barely notice it's there. Definitely recommend!

Just like my last Vapor Helmet. It's good.

Lightweight, breathable and adjustable. Just a bit fragile. Watch how it's put into a stuffed pack.

I bought this helmet for my wife for her birthday. She has always wanted a pink helmet. When I opened the box I thought, “Wow, that’s bright pink”. It’s even brighter in person than in the photos. My wife absolutely loves the color. Functionally it is incredibly light. I will be getting myself one… but not in pink.

Been waiting for the re-release!

I was so bummed I missed out on the pink hazel Findlay edition of this helmet. Previously, I wore the gray vapor helmet for years.Every helmet feels clunky after you have gotten used to this one. My only criticism, the dudes I climb with demand you make a larger, male version.

Just doesn't fit

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:

I bought a M/L and it was just too big, the S/M was too snug. I normally wear a medium in BD, too bad it doesn't come in a designated medium. So back it goes. It just didn't feel that comfortable to me. I prefer something lower profile as well. On the positive side it is really light and nice looking.

Love it!

The first time I used this helmet was sunny and about 100 degrees. It was so comfortable and lightweight, I didn’t even notice it on all day. Well vented, great fit, and the pink is perfect!
