    Although smart enough to wear Petzl's Boreo Helmet, you should still cower in fear every time you hear that word yelled out at the climbing crag. This helmet is a hybrid of sorts, with denser foam up top to better protect against falling rocks, while the softer sides take impacts when you're falling better. There are various adjustments at the internal liner to ensure a secure fit.

    • Hybrid climbing helmet is denser up top to protect from rockfall
    • EPP foam liner around sides to take the impact from falls
    • Wide ventilation holes amplify airflow
    • Soft headband with multiple adjustments to secure the fit
    • Four clips attach Petzl's Vizion eye shield or headlamp
    • Item #PTZ007H

    Most important tool in your bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We all know how serious a head injury is. So make sure you have packed your Boreo with you! Or show a loved one how much you care by making sure they have a boreo in their arsenal!

    Very Happy

      I switched to the Boreo after years with an Elios, and I like the fit of this better. It's lighter, it covers the back of my head really well, and seems to sit better on top. It also vents better with the bigger slots. Highly recommended.

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      It has EPP foam sides and back which is a big improvement over styrofoam. But the hard shell should be thinner and the helmet should weight less than the old standard hard shell helmets. Deal breaker is that Petzl went cheap on the chin strap adjustment -- they sewed it to the side straps so that it can not be adjusted to meet the wearer's neck comfortably. Adjusting the back straps to meet the headband so that the helmet doesn't shift front to back, moves the attached chin strap so that it cuts into the throat or the chin. Most other helmets have a sliding adjustment where the chin strap meets the side straps to prevent this. I'll be waiting for Petzl to correct this (2x $0.25 plastic pieces like on the Sirocco)) or for other mfgs. to use EPP foam.
