    Superlight softshell stone-shielder.

    The Shield Lite Climbing Helmet is a lighter version of Edelrid's best-selling softshell helmet for big wall climbers, alpinists, and mountaineers. In contrast to hardshell helmets, softshells wrap shock-absorbing EPS foam in a thin, lightweight polycarbonate exterior. The result is a superlight helmet that spreads impact energy across the whole helmet. Although less robust than hardshell helmets, softshells like the Shield Lite will protect your dome from falling rocks and long falls. This helmet ensures a secure fit with adjustable straps at the head, neck and chin, as well as removable internal padding. Four robust clips accommodate a headlamp when you're sending it at night.

    Love this helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is the most comfortable helmet I've worn. I have a small head and other helmets never felt comfortable. This helmet has excellent padding on the inside, is very light and stays in place while climbing. I also really like how the chin strap can be secured so that it doesn't flap around.

    Solid helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This helmet is lightweight and durable. The adjustable straps and snap clips make for easy adjustments. It is comfortable to wear. I've used this helmet climbing outdoors and it's a great, safe addition for more challenging climbs or when belaying.
