Ok. Guys. You can start laughing now. I went to a mall last Friday and guess what I found - an ice climbing helmet made by Chanel. Yes. Chanel - the cosmetic and fashion maker. First, I was laughing but then I started to take a close look at the helmet. It seems to be a very well made helmet - nice fit, light, protecting visor, one knob adjustment (much easier to dial then my Petzl), and the most important - it is UIAA approved. Price - $198. For a fashio climber chic like my girl friend, it seems to be a great gift. My question is - who actually made this helmet? Chanel might have designed the look but some gear manufacturer must made this. Anyone have any idea?
