no1homewrote a review of Petzl Sirocco Helmet on June 21, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Have owned a few different climbing helmets over the years, from hardshell to foam, with each having their pros and cons. I think the Sirocco is by far the best helmet I have ever owned. The EPP foam used throughout this helmet feels much sturdier than my old EPS foam helmet. The patch of polycarbonate shell on top is a nice improvement over the previous version of this helmet. I bought the black one and was a little leery it might be hot, but I just got back from a week of climbing in fairly warm temps (80s) and bright sun and it was totally fine. The venting is amazing, it is super comfortable and lightweight. I have kind of a large noggin and the larger size is a perfect fit for me.
