bought this helmet for my son to wear at the gym and to also use at camp on the outdoor wall. he will wear this as it is so light on his head that he forgets it is there.the shell is like an egg he says really light but also super strong. The fit is super easy to adjust and it breaths really well. He wont wear a bike helmet but will always grab this on his way out the door. I say that is fine as anything is better than nothing

This is a great light weight helmet. Feels like nothing is on your head. If making a fast and light alpine ascent this helmet is great. But for day to day use on a multi pitch climb I would rather have something more durable.
I took this helmet on a trip and really wanted to like it. I'm giving it five - what are those, moose? Mooses? Five meese. However, I had trouble getting it to fit my enormous head. I have a particularly huge head, so I hate to blame the helmet. We finally got it to fit properly by moving all sliders/positioners out to their fullest position (and then some, I think). The helmet itself is very light, feels very strong and safe, and vents well. For anyone that has a head within the normal human range, I think this would be a perfect helmet. It also looks great.
Great light helmet. Fits nicely for a large head. Good even pressure restraint system. looking forward to dawning this for hours with the BD Storm light which fits on it like a glove. or helmet....keep your heads about you..cheers.
