    The go-anywhere, climb-anything helmet.

    Petzl designed its Elios Climbing Helmet with versatility in mind, so you can stay safe whether you're rock or ice climbing, mountaineering, caving, canyoneering, or hitting up a via ferrata. Its lightweight ABS shell meets all the standard certifications for climbing, and the expanded polystyrene liner is breathable and prevents the helmet from moving around on your dome while you climb. You can adjust the headband and chin strap for an ideal fit across your noggin, too. Petzl also integrated shutters over the vents so you can close them when you climb in colder temps, and made sure the Elios was compatible with headlamps and the Vizion eye shield (sold separately) so you can be ready for whatever route comes your way.

    Works like a dream

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    My step dad has been sport climbing for over 30 years and has never owned a helmet. He taught my mom how to climb (they are both in their late 50s, which I think is pretty cool) and she is preparing to do her first multi-pitch climbs. In the interest of being more safety conscious he decided it was time to get a helmet to set a good example for her. I helped him pick this helmet because Petzl is always dependable for good quality climbing gear. He said that this helmet is comfortable and easy to adjust.

    Protect your dome in comfort and style

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I guided for a wilderness therapy program out here in Utah for awhile and on my very first week on the job I guided a climbing trip. I didn't have a helmet at the time and the provided helmet that I was using all week fit my head funny and gave me a headache all day, everyday. As soon as I finished the trip I picked up this helmet so I wouldn't be forced to use the old ones that the company provided. Since I picked it up, my head has never been more comfortable while climbing. That was back in 2015 and the helmet is still going strong! The slidelock headband gives you a perfect fit and allows you to adjust the sizing if you want to wear a beanie underneath. The fit is true, I have a 22 in head circumference and I went with a size 2. I really like the adjustable vents you can open them up in the summer time to let your dome breath and shut them if you're chasing rock in the chilly weather of the shoulder seasons. It accommodates a headlamp very nicely and has a few clips on the front and back to hold it in place.
    I mostly use it for climbing but it works well for caving and canyoneering as well! Awesome helmet for the price! Keep your head safe and climb on!

    Protect your dome in comfort and style

    Solid helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a solid helmet that does a great job protecting your head. I have a 19 inch head circumference and went with the size 1. It is very adjustable so I can wear it directly on my head, or over a ball cap or a stocking cap in colder weather. I have used this helmet for Sport climbing both single and multi itch routes as well as Ice climbing. The Adjustable ventilation allows you to regulate the temperature of you head. It is fairly light and doesn't feel bulky on your head when you are climbing.
    Helmets in general are not the most stylish pieces of equipment, but when it comes to protecting your brain, Function over Fashion.
    I only gave it 4 stars because there are lighter and more comfortable helmets out there, you just have to pay twice as much for them.

    Doesn't stay adjusted

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    the internal plastic adjusters don't stay put, meaning I was constantly distracted by trying to keep the helmet on my head while on route and on belay at the crag. Glad i picked this up on sale, sad I won't be able to use it.

    Not comfortable for me

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Maybe it's just me, but I thought this helmet wasn't that comfortable. If you can find the Meteor on sale, it's a much better deal.

    Superior Comfort

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I recently used this helmet down in Moab Utah for a day of rappelling. It was so comfortable and light, I put my hat in my pack and just kept it there. I would definitely recommend, and have!

    Superior Comfort

    Continues to be the standard underground

      We've been using this helmet for years mapping caves around the world. One aspect of this helmet is how easy it can be disassembled and cleaned, especially now in the age of WNS (white nose syndrome) decon protocol.
