- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Initially I thought maybe the other reviewers were just too picky. I should have listened to them. This helmet sits high on the head, and seems to just be oddly shaped in every way. I really wish I hadn't purchased it and now I can't return it. I am going to get a Black Diamond Half Dome.
My wife loved her 1st version of this helmet for ski mountaineering, but lost it when if fell out of her Mammut helmet holder on her pack. This one did not work at all. The adjustment strap did not work; it would not hold an adjustment, just pop out to the largest position at the lightest touch.
Hi, I'm a climbing newbie but put a high priority on safety AlWAYS wearing a helmet when snowboarding & biking. I do have an IMMENSELY huge bucket head!!! I wear a men's XL snowboarding helmet. It seems like all the climbing helmets come only in one size. Do you think it will fit me? Also, I know you should always wear a helmet when climbing outside because dangers of falling rocks. However, do you think I should wear one indoors? Also, a side note I had neurosurgery 1/1215 to remove a golf ball sized tumor I've named Barry removed from my right cerebellum node so I do try to protect my head as much as possible. Advice?
Thanks for posting a great questions, this helmet has a max head circumference of 24 inches.
So I'd say the best thing to do is to measure up your head and that will be a good starting point.
Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!
Sits high on the head
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Even after adjusting it, this helmet sits a little high on the head. I worry about the back of my head just not having enough protection.
I don't do too much outdoor climbing, so I may keep it for now but replace it with a helmet with better coverage.

I wear a helmet for all the other activities; biking, boating, and skiing but I tend to shy away from wearing a climbing helmet unless doing multipitch due to the fit and weight UNTIL NOW. I'm in love with the Armour; it's light, easy to adjust, fits like a charm, and now lives in my cragging pack.
