The lightest, most breathable and most comfortable climbing helmet we’ve ever made, the Vapor provides reliable, ultralight protection. Learn More


Providing ultralight, low-profile protection, unparalleled ventilation and a secure and super-comfortable fit, the Black Diamond Vapor helmet is a go-anywhere cragging lid that proves helmets aren't just for multi-pitch trad climbs and big alpine faces. We engineered a sheet of Kevlar and a series of carbon rods in between co-molded EPS foam and a polycarbonate shell to keep the weight at a minimum while keeping you protected. The Vapor's ratcheting suspension tucks into the helmet for compact storage in your pack or haul bag, and removable headlamp clips secure your light on pre-dawn starts or when rapping after dark.

  • Co-molded EPS foam with polycarbonate shell is lower profile than the Vector
  • Geometric, open-air design provides unparalleled airflow
  • Ratchet adjuster with molded push buttons
  • Headlamp clips are removable for reduced snagging on slings and clothing

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helium head I've had a Half Dome forever, but wanted something lighter. Opted for the Vapor over the Vector in the middle of a 100 degree spell here in Utah. Happy with the purchase, even though it was a little more $$. It's airier than anything I've worn in the past, ridiculously light, and very easy to adjust into a comfortable fit. I use it for canopy work and was a little worried it wouldn't stand up to constant knocks, whacks and scrapes from branches. Not an issue, though I wouldn't recommend absently hucking it down on rocks after taking it off. July 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and weight It is like not wearing a helmet. Great fit. Since it is light weight construction, it gets dinged up a lot more than your standard hard plastic helmet. I love mine and will probably get another. July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent buy A cycling helmet of these materials retails for double this price, so you're not necessarily getting gouged in the grand relative scheme, but it still is a pricey helmet in the climbing world. super duper light. super duper comfortable. super duper low profile. super duper cool (temps and the chyll-brah-bro factor, which is why you wear a helmet, obviously). Dings up easily. Maybe it's cause it feels so light and minimal, but it seems to be as delicate as a flower. If you want a helmet to toss about in your bag, buy the hardshell protection, cause this will get shredded under those conditions. July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like wearing Nothing at all. I love that I don't notice this helmet at all. I got sick of always feeling over heated in my lid. This helmet is breathable, light, and the first helmet that I don't hesitate to pack with me on a hot summer day. Despite its advantages, the helmet is delicate and belongs on top of your pack or on your head. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So light, and aerodynamic I literally forgot that I was wearing it and jumped into the truck for the drive home with it on. Also doesn't gape from gazing upward (heavier, less secure helmets tend to slip backward when searching for holds on vertical terrain). June 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazingly light This helmet is so light, it is scary. Every time I go to pick it up, it just surprises me how little it weights. I have a small head and it can adjust down with no problem. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best available. The most comfortable helmet I've tried. Far exceeds what I've tried from other brands from their lightweight styles. Magical. May 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Lightweight! I have a 7 1/8" head and the S/M helmet fits perfectly. It is so lightweight and comfortable I legitimately forget I'm wearing it. Best helmet I've worn. April 24, 2015
