I had the last model of this helmet, and hit the ground with my head while wearing it. I broke my ankle during the fall requiring a bunch of screws, but not my skull. I would give this helmet five (5) stars, but apparently it is only good for one use. The back of the helmet was crushed. However, I liked it enough to buy another one. (Not all helmets come down as far in the back). Unlike the other reviewer, I found it to be well made and worth the price. My ankle cost $30,000 to fix; my head got off for the price of the helmet.

This is the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned, its so light I forget I'm wearing it. The chin strap is comfortable and the headlamp clips are a nice plus. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the size adjustment system doesn't seem as comprehensive as in other Petzl helmets I've owned (an adjustment in the back is the only available). This hasn't been a problem yet but it may be once I start wearing a winter beanie with it as ice climbing season starts. Otherwise great helmet!

Color Name: GreySize Name: One Size Verified Purchase
Pro:
extremely light
secure headlamp attachments
good airflow on head
feels pretty comfortable after wearing for several hours
Con:
I don't like the chin strap connector piece that much. It sometimes takes me a few trys to get it to connect. It hasn't popped off though.
I don't re-adjust the helmet that much but if I did I don't think I would like the way this helmet is adjusted.
Since it's very light it also feels very flimsy

If I was just rock climbing the flimsiness of it wouldn't bother me but I also mountaineer and go caving. I feel like if I would hit my head hard on a cave ceiling or on some ice I could crack the helmet. I should probably go with a hard shell but how light and how good this feels on my head makes it hard to want to switch to anything else. I have been using it now for a few months and i'ts holding up fine so far though.

A good choice when packing for a weekend of multi-sport activity. This isn't the best helmet for climbing, caving, biking and paddling, but it is one of the few that work for all of them. It's nice to know one helmet can cover all of the bases. It is relatively light and well ventilated. It's as comfortable as any helmet I've used. This is a good purchase for someone starting a gear closet as it has multiple applications. I do have other bike helmets that I use for biking only trips and I have another helmet for caving only trips, but this one will let me pack one helmet if I'm planning on several activities in one trip.

Light weight and stylish. Quality made. It's a one time use helmet, which most people don't realize. "One time use" means that if a rock falls on your head, the helmet gives way to reduce the impact. Speedy delivery, I'm very satisfied.

Helmet is light and airy, adjusts easily and you hardly know you have it on. I use it as a bicycle helmet, it is rated for bicycle in Europe, and it is perfect. Also helps that it can be used for climbing or rafting. Great helmet, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Well although over time the Petzl helmet has changed from the tried and true solid helmet we grew up with. This is still one of the best fitting helmets we could find. We climb with Boy Scouts, so safety first. Anyone looking for a great helmet will not be disappointed.

Great helmet. Lightest helmet I have used and breathes better than any others I have used. It is the most expensive helmet I have ever owned but also the best. If I had to do it again I would. Great helmet.
