MammutSkywalker 2 Climbing Helmet

Bomber protection in a sleek shell.

Mammut paid equal attention to comfort and safety when designing the Skywalker 2 Climbing Helmet. A single-handed adjustment lets you loosen or tighten the fit around your noggin to handle your beanie in the winter.

  • Hard-shell design can take multiple impacts
  • One-handed adjustments for all-season functionality
  • Headlamp clips for nighttime climbing
  • Fits hat sizes 6 5/8 through 7 5/8 (20.7-24in or 53-61cm head circumference)

No complaints.

It's a helmet, not too uncomfortable, good color, seems durable. No complaints here.

comfortable, light, and on a budget!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this helmet to put my family's mind at ease on my trad climbing trip this spring. This helmet comes without many bells or whistles but for me thats perfect: simplicity is the name of the game. The helmet adjusts front to back courtesy of a ratcheting dial in the rear, and of course the chin strap tightens it top to bottom. I also own an action camera and was curious how solid the helmet would feel once mounting the camera to the top. Would it want to wobble around, or be pulled off backwards every time I looked up? No! even with a rather high profiled camera mounted at the crown of the helmet it still felt solid and after about 5 minutes of wear, I forgot it was even on. Great value for the price and idea for those looking to protect their domes on a climb or mount a camera to share their adventures with others.

comfortable, light, and on a budget!

Good Fit

    This helmet is simple and it feels great - half the time I forget it's even there. I'd say I have a relatively normal shaped head, and the fit feels perfect, yet easily adjustable. I don't feel the need to get anything more complicated (and more expensive) because of it's sturdiness and simplicity.

    Great price for a great product

      These helmets are amazing for climbing. They are fashionable and fit very snug, great job keeping my head cool. It's light weight and easy to adjust for all conditions. Price is great! We got two of them....

      Lightweight Adequate Head Protection

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The helmet fits great and has plenty of adjustment. Once it is on, you'll forget that it's there. Vision is not effected at all with this helmet. It looks good. It comes with a helmet bag to keep my gear from scratching it up while scrambling to and from the climbing routes. It keeps my head cooler than I thought it would, comfortably climbing in temperatures exceeding 105 degrees. Oh, and the headlamp clips work with no issues. In response to a recent comment: No hard shell climbing helmet fits like a bike helmet. Climbing helmets are designed to take a good blow to the top from a falling rock or when you hit your head on an overhang. That is there main focus. Secondary consideration is given to front and back impacts from a whipper fall. Side impacts would be somewhat rare because a shoulder would take the majority of the force from a fall that had you twisted to the side.

      Didn't fit me right

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      Really wanted to love this helmet, which would have been my first climbing helmet. However, I found the fit uncomfortable. I was comparing it to multiple bike helmets I've had, which are comfortable enough that one can forget one is wearing a helmet at all. Unfortunately, in the case of the Mammut Skywalker 2, there is no way to adjust the back strap up or down. On my head, the back strap didn't lie low enough. To keep the helmet on (since it rode quite high) it was necessary to crank tight the knob on the rear strap, boring directly into the occipital bone on the back of my skull. I foresaw the helmet giving me a headache if I wore it for any amount of time, and decided to return it. I should have read this review by Outdoor Gear Lab first: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/reviews/climbing/climbing-helmet/mammut-skywalker-2

      Great!

        This helmet fit perfectly. It has great full coverage but with enough flexibility so you don't feel claustrophobic. Super comfortable with great strap adjustments. Highly recommend!

        Comfortable and protective

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        It's a helmet that fits and adjusts well, covers the noggin, retains the headlamp robustly and is comfortable enough that you forget you even have it on. Lightweight and adjusts for all conditions, very easily. Recommended!

        Nice Fit, Good Price

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Overall good fitting, adjustable to fit most head sizes, comfortable to wear, no sliding around. I've hit my head with this helmet on multiple times I am confident it will do the desired job

        nice looks good price

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This helmet has a sleek appeal , and is very light.
        Though compared to the $60 Petzel model, the plastic shell of the Mammut seems to be lower quality. The Petzel certainly has a thicker outer shell. So depending on your usage choose wisely. I use the Mammut for mountain biking and shot top rope climbs. If I were to get serious on the rock Id go for someting else. As a weekend warrior, this works fine.

        Great Dome Shield

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I wanted an inexpensive helmet that wasn't the Half dome from BD... Thankfully there was the Skywalker. Is very comfy, fits well, looks good, and protects the brain cage. save your brain and get this bad boy now.





        oh and i got the black.. thought it might be to hot but it breathes very very well.

        Awesome light weight helmet

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is an awesome lightweight helmet. It fits great. The ease of adjusting the size comes in very handy, when you take family and friends to try out climbing.

        The Force is strong with this one

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        Uhhhh besides the kick ass name this helmet is bomber! My friend loves it. It is light. Well ventilated and fits comfortably. What more could you want from a helmet? Also comes in awesome colors and the headlamp clips make it so you are not fumbling around and adjusting your headlamp strap just clip and go!

        I love this helmet. Been using it climbing cell towers for 3 years. Think it is about time to buy a new one. The inside top foam has finally broke:(

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I gave this helmet as a Christmas gift to a friend and really didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be everything you want from a climbing helmet. It's comfortable and adjustable to fit all head sizes. has a nice pad underneath the chin has plenty of good ventilation holes for those hot days out at the crag.

        does the Mammut Skywalker 2 Climbing Helmet fit men and women?

        Kate,

        Yes it does! I take this helmet with me as a spare. My girlfriends, my teenage sons, and my husband have all used it and it fit successfully.
