Why We Like The Black Diamond Vision MIPS Helmet

The Vision Helmet is Black Diamond's most durable foam helmet for climbing, and this Vision MIPS Helmet adds a Multi-directional Impact Protection System for an even greater level of safety. The Vision also 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.

Black Diamond Vision Helmet

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 2"

Excellent offering in the line. I cross it over as a backcountry touring helmet. Any foam helmet that has ever been made is susceptible to cracking when its loaded up in a duffel bag or pack that is being packed full - you absolutely must tightly pack loose clothing, etc. inside the helmet before packing it away in a duffel. And still have to be careful even with those precautions. Never or try to never pack it in checked baggage on an airplane. And if all that is too much, go back to the hardshells that hardly do a thing for protecting a leader fall. Personally, I'd learn the nuances of the helmet that provides much more impact force absorption from all angles over a hardshell - what I now consider a ropes course helmet.

It broke in my bag.

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:

The helmet is pretty delicate. The top has a hard shell and the sides and back are foam. The back foam broke (cracked) in my bag before I could use it. Luckily I had my old helmet with me and used that one. Its super light but you are going to need to be pretty careful with the foam parts. They are not protected with plastic at all.
