Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of equipment Excellent helmet that does the job with few frills and a great price. The headlamp clips are super handy for keeping your light attached and the helmet itself is very breathable. My wife had the unfortunate opportunity of testing hers out and it very well may have saved her life. Some loose rock gave way during a recent decent and after a summersault she caught her fall on the side of her head. She walked away with only some bumps and scrapes. The helmet did its job and despite some minor scratches is still very serviceable. July 6, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great protection This helmet saved me from at the very least a severe concussion, but more than likely an extended hospital stay. I was hit by a softball sized rock from probably about 20 - 30 feet while belaying. I was knocked down (but not out). Except for being stunned with a minor headache, I was uninjured. I was back on the wall after a short rest with no lingering issues. The plastic shell had a visible crack in it. When I returned home, I took out the EPS foam which was clearly deformed from the impact. I'll be picking up my replacement helmet before my next outing. April 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by gets the job done If you're climbing or belaying (outside of the gym) you should be wearing a helmet. This one is durable enough to last you years of service, and is priced to be entry level. No, its not ultra-lightweight, but it has a one-handed adjustable backstrap, and doesn't actually look half bad. Note: when you first get it, adjust the sizing of the straps, including moving the chin strap forward if you need to (you can feed strap from one side to the other via the back of the helmet). This prevents the feeling of being choked by the chin strap, which shouldn't happen if it's properly adjusted. March 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Brain Bucket If fits close, doesn't weigh much, easily adjustable and looks like it will be cool in summer. For winter I have an old military helmet beanie to wear under it. It's a huge improvement over the old MSR helmet I used to use. But it will be too strange looking to use for skiing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and Effective I don't climb as often as I would like. I needed a helmet that kept me protected, but realistically I expect to retire a helmet once it takes a good hit. For me, I did't see the advantage of going with a more expensive helmet. I'm very satisfied with the fit and feel of the half dome! February 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The headband is uncomfortable The rectangles of hard foam on the front of the headband make my Half Dome unwearable. If it's adjusted tight enough to prevent wobbling, it rubs and leaves red marks on my forehead. February 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit I ordered this helmet because it is required for search and rescue. I was surprised by how easy it is to adjust. I had adjusted it to fit directly on my head, but when I got to the training center it was horrible weather with a rain/snow mixture. I was able to quickly adjust the straps to fit over my warm hat and it was comfortable to wear all day. January 19, 2015
