This is my second climbing helmet. I wanted a better fit and suspension system and I got it.

Crevasse rescue class, with a TS cap of course
All helmets are tested to the same standard, so what I like about this one is the adjustability: it fits me in the summer, and in winter with a beanie underneath, and I like the suspension system. It is easy to adjust when I switch from summer to winter mode and stays where I want it on my head.
I got this helmet in orange for visibility on the snow.
Cons: The shell feels kinda brittle. I had a Rock Star helmet and it felt like it could take a hit and rebound, I am afraid that this one will chip or shatter when it takes its first good hit.

I just got mine. It handled the rocks on the Bells well and after 12 hours it still didn't bother me. Straps comfortable vented well. It's a good helmet, go for it.
