Why We Like The Vision Helmet

The Vision has seen granite pillars, blue glaciers, and sandstone offwidths while strapped to our head. The hard shell prevents ice crumbles and small choss from leaving dents and dings behind, while the revamped sides and back give us increased coverage as we chase the send.

Good Helmet

After a couple of days in the vision helmet, I give it the thumbs up. Fit might be a little on the small side, but it works.

Solid Dome

Holds up well for foam and it is incredibly light. A large stalactite fell onto my head and it took that ding like a kevlar helmet. Just dinked off of it. Solidified my support for Black Diamond gear.

Helmet with a vision for getting wild and staying safe

My BD vision helmet has proved to be versatile, comfortable and protective. I have used my Vision Helmet on professional trips I lead as well as for my personal use. Climbing of all types the helmet is so comfortable I forget I am wearing it. The fit adjustment system is simple ad stays in place for as long as you are out. I recently used the helmet on a backcountry snowboard trip. The helmet is super light weight and did not compromise my riding or climbing. This is one of the best helmets I have owned (30 years of helmet purchases).

Best Helmet Ever

Lightweight, durable, and easy to adjust. Headlamp clips work great, excellent ventilation. Used primarily for alpine climbing and rescue in the PNW.

Top Notch Helmet

This helmet is equally as outstanding as it is affordable. If you're looking to spend time in a mountain environment then this is a must invest.

Awesome helmet!

Great balance of light weight but durable. As a mountain guide my helmets are always getting bashed around. The solid plastic up top makes this last much longer than the full Styrofoam type helmets

Perfect helmet for our Search and Rescue missions

This is a great helmet. Light, tight and ready to go. It's hot out here in the Phoenix area and the venting really helps out.

Chin Strap Not Adjustable

I like the weight, color, design, and fit with one exception. There is no adjustment for the placement of the chin strap. This makes the strap no matter how loose, feel like it is choking me. I do not like it.
