Hello!
Please forgive if this is not the right forum for this question.
My stepson wants to take me on a climbing trip.
I have about all the gear I need for the trip but I can't find a helmet my size. I am 6-9 and my hat size is 8+.
Web site http://REI.COM got nothing for my size.
Can someone please point me to a web site that might help?
Thanks!
Al.

Because climbing helmets are adjustable, you need to specify your head circumference. Here is one chart that converts circumference to size. Black Diamond and Petzl both make helmets that go up above 25 inches (equivalent to 8+).
