Here's what other sites are saying:

In the alpine, razor-sharp ice shards can rain down on your head at any moment--be ready with the Wild Country Alpine Shield Climbing Helmet. On a fair-weather climb, the light EPS helmet is cool and comfortable, and when you reach higher into more dangerous terrain, the Alpine Shield cover screws onto the helmet and adds a tough layer that ice and rock-fall won't penetrate.
