Meteor Climbing Helmet

Go higher and ski deeper with the Petzl Meteor Helmet, designed specifically with ski mountaineering in mind. Large vents throughout the helmet help circulate air to keep your noggin cool while working through the crux sequence, and dual adjustments create space for adding a beanie when your core temp cools as you transition to ski out in late spring corn. Petzl worked to gain certifications for ski touring safety and lead falls while climbing to make this helmet the piece-de-la-resistance in any ski mountaineering setup.

Best one I've Found

I've put it through the wringer

My head measures around 18.5 cm (7 3/8 in) with a soft tape measure. The size M/L works excellent for me with plenty of adjustment room to wear a hat or thin toque underneath. I have used this helmet for both ice and rock climbing, with no issues or complaints. The headlamp clips have come in handy and never failed. I personally really like the chin strap buckle. It has a magnetic attachment, which helps to guide the buckle when securing. Quite easy to unlatch as well as adjust the fit. Very lightweight and doesn't dent or show wear like many Black Diamond helmets I've used in the past. Would not advise putting this helmet in your checked bag if you're going on a climbing trip though... Lesson learned the hard way. If you're a lady reading this, there is a female specific version that works better with a ponytail, which my wife uses and loves.

First helmet = great helmet

I've used it several times

This is my first climbing helmet. Used this past summer on via ferrata and a couple of Colorado 14ers. Super light and comfortable--vents well in hot temps. The adjustable harness for the noggin pushes down into helmet, so I'm not worried about it breaking when shoving helmet into pack. Looking forward to using it this winter from some ski touring/winter climbs. Overall, great helmet.

Very light and spacious.

Size Bought:
5' 6"

I use M/L size and head circunference is about 58 cm and the helmet has more centimeter of advantage for bigger heads or to use it with bandana, balaclava or beenie.

Great lightweight comfy helmet

I've used it several times

The helmet itself is light, comfortable, and well ventilated. It also has a thin plastic shell to help protect the softer foam from the kind of light touch damage the bd vapor and vector suffer from. It even comes with a bag! The bag is a joke however. It only fits about 2/3 of the helmet. We've tried all orientations, and the only way the helmet almost fits is crown down, with the opening by the opening, but even then you can't close the bag. The bag is a cheap material anyway. You'd think they would have sprung for an extra 2° worth of material to actually cover the helmet, or not include the joke of a bag at all.

Comfortable, light helemt

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

This is not only a super light and comfortable helmet, it is very durable. I bang it up quite a bit, but it still doesn't have dents. I like the clips for ski goggles or a headlamp, as it's easy to put on and feels secure. The one flaw is that the magnetic buckle on the helmet strap collects dirt and can get in the way of buckling it sometimes. Can be quite annoying.
