Recent Climbing Helmet Reviews

Petzl Ecrin Roc

rated 5 of 5 stars It is one of the best helmets for caving, very strong and durable. All caving clubs in Slovenia use it. It is a slightly heavier than new Petzl models of helmets. I recommend. =) I use it for cave exploring and climbing and when I go in mountains. I have on helmet the fixed lamp. I have that helmet a few years and it looks like it will be forever. Full review

Grivel Salamander

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very comfortable helmet that has multiple sizes available. A great helmet for ice climbing, rock climbing, and mountaineering. Comes in multiple colors. This is a great helmet. I own several different climbing helmets and this one has by far become my favorite across all climbing sports. I have a large head and the multiple sizes allow me to get a good fit. Some one-size-fits all helmets are tough for me to fit. One of the most important features I have found is the improved side protection around… Full review

Petzl Meteor III+

rated 4 of 5 stars Comfortable, lightweight helmet. I've used this helmet for all types of climbing.  It's so light, you can forget you have it on, which is a real accomplishment.  Full review

Petzl Sirocco

rated 5 of 5 stars The lightweight, and seemingly styrofoam structure of this helmet make it intimidating, but after hard use it has turned out to be an excellent helmet. Finally fed up with my old Lucky brand helmet from the '90s I decided to shop for a new one. I decided I wanted lightweight, and something much more comfortable then my current helmet. So my choices came down to the Petzl Meteor, Black Diamond Vapour, and the Petzl Sirocco.  The Meteor didn't fit me, so that went out. Originally I had thrown out… Full review

Petzl Unisex Elios

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a lightweight, well ventilated helmet for your head. Best used while rock and ice climbing. The headband has a quick tightening knob on the back for size adjustment. It has headlamp clamps that you don't notice until you need them. The chin strap is easy to connect. Every connection point on the straps has teeth, so it is time consuming to adjust, but once you get it adjusted it doesn't move. There is no sun visor lip. The front comes right down to your eyebrows. This is a lightweight, well… Full review

Black Diamond Half Dome

rated 4 of 5 stars Very comfortable and durable helmet. Great quality for use on rock and ice. I've used this helmet on rock and ice, and it has definitely help up well and done its job. While looking at helmet options, I had debated the options for weights, but I went with this durable helmet over other lightweight options.  This helmet isn't much heavier, but I prefer the extra protection the Half Dome provides. The sizing has been easy to adjust, and it feels very comfortable. I have the blue color, and it looks… Full review

Black Diamond Half Dome

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Another classic helmet. Great for the price. "Promise me Dad, that you won't get me a helmet like yours or my brother's." She mostly meant that she didn't want an orange or red helmet but to be sure I ran the Half Dome by her first and after approval, placed the order. This is the third helmet I have bought and, after two seasons of sport climbing and easy scrambling, we don't regret it. Besides the Camp Rock Star, this is probably the most common helmet I see climbing. Since my oldest wanted a… Full review

CAMP Stunt

rated 4 of 5 stars Must keep in mind that this product is made in China. This is easy to observe when looking at the quality of the product that was used. Regardless, this helmet does what it is intended to do. A little tricky to adjust the fit properly, but once adjusted, the helmet fits like a glove. A good helmet for the price. Full review

CAMP Men's Armour

rated 4 of 5 stars Very comfortable and excellent value. Equivalent if not better than the Petzl Elios. I have the Petzl Elios for my personal use and have used it for a number of Scout events and it is a fine helmet.  When it was time to buy a helmet for my son, I was going to get another one for him. However, I found some excellent reviews of this helmet, CAMP Armour, and decided to get it instead.   Now, I wish I had purchased the CAMP Armour for my personal use. It is very comfortable and seems to ventilate… Full review
