Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Petzl removed every bit of unnecessary material from the Meteor III + Climbing Helmet to keep it as light as possible. Part of that minimalism involved adding a whole bunch of ventilation so this helmet breathes nearly as well as if you were wearing nothing at all and gives you no excuse to leave it behind on any rock climb.
