I just wore it for 6 hours yesterday for a caving excursion and loved it. By the end of the trip I was starting to feel pressure on a few points in the helmet, but for most users, you won't be wearing it for that long continuously which is the only reason I give 4 stars.

We use these on our via ferrata where we see anywhere from 50 to 150+ customers a day. For the amount of use they get and constant adjustments/resetting they are very durable.
The weak points that have surfaced after two years of daily use (May - Sept) seem to be the teeth/gears where the dial adjusts in the back. They tend to deform and get jammed in the dial making it more difficult to adjust. They still adjust, however it is not easy and it only continues to deform the teeth.
Let me put this out there as well: this is not a safety issue (ie no cracking of the shell or the harness system failing) It is only an inconvenience if you are constantly readjusting the the dial on a daily basis for months.
Luckily BD has resolved all issues we've had. They are very speedy with the assessment/shipping and quick to help. Absolutely no complaints except that we are out a few helmets during the shipping process haha
For seeing over 4,000 customers last year and over 3,000 this year so far, I feel that only having a few helmets affected by this issue so far is more than acceptable.

I use these with my scouts. They are more comfortable than other brands because of the adjustable rear strap

I am pleased, as a guide, to say that I love these helmets. The jury is out on durability over time, but. . .the fitting is EASY for my clients to figure out. I also like the colors. They make climbing much safer out here in West Virginia because the brightness tell hunters that we are not game.

Ahhh the Half Dome helmet. What can you say? I think I have three of them. They perform like a helmet should and have saved my dome from it's fair share of falling ice. It fits well and keeps my head warm on chilly ice routes. The only downside it the rear retention straps are hard to pack away, but that has been addressed on their new models. A great inexpensive trustworthy helmet.

We both own and appreciate this helmet. I wear mine all day at Smith Rock, OR even when it's in the 90s (for sun protection on my balding head). The helmet is comfortable and breathes relatively well.
