Why We Like The Vision Helmet

The Vision Helmet is Black Diamond's most durable foam helmet for climbing. It has an updated design to the innovative hybrid construction that climbers have been enjoying for seasons. The polycarbonate shell covers a larger portion of the crown, and there's a layer of EPS foam underneath for added crown protection. EPP foam covers the rest of the helmet for multi-impact protection. The suspension system adjusts for a secure fit, and removable padding customizes the helmet's fit for even greater comfort.

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.

Great fitting and Comfortable Helmet

This helmet is one of the best-fitting helmets I've ever had! I have a small-medium head and it sits well. It's pretty lightweight, which I appreciate.

Perfect for young clunbers

Our kids have zero complaints about wearing this helmet all day long at the crag.

Comfortable and Light

I have used the half dome my whole life, but I wanted to try something different. The Vision is light, comfortable, and easy to adjust. All my climbing partners loved it and are upgrading theirs. The only complaint I have is that wearing a hat is more difficult with the vision healmet.
