Description

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

Poor Chinstrap Fit </span><span itemprop="description"> I'm definitely excited about this helmet. It's incredibly light, and fits well. My one complaint is the chin strap. The lower portion is sewn in, which is very light weight. However, this makes it fixed. With my head, it is placed too far to the rear and chokes me when I look down. I had to re sew the chin strap further forward. Aside from that, I'm completely satisfied with this helmet. </span> November 5, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-11-05" /> </div><div id='108406216' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Vapor Helmet" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Andrew</span><span itemprop="name"> Lighter Than Air </span><span itemprop="description"> The other night I was tinkering in my gear room and plopped my Vapor helmet on my head just for fun. I spent roughly an hour reorganizing and tuning my gear from that day's outing. Afterwards, I walked to the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and laughed at myself. I'd forgotten I had the helmet on! The thing is so light, so comfortable, and so well ventilated that it's easy to forget. This thing has saved my dome on many occasions during both the rock and ice seasons and is always my helmet of choice! </span> October 31, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-10-31" /> </div><div id='102969018' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Vapor Helmet" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Francis</span><span itemprop="name"> A Fine Brain Bucket </span><span itemprop="description"> First thoughts on the helmet were on it's overall weight. I have never minded wearing a helmet all day whether at work or attempting to push the grade. However with the Vapor have found myself turning on the car before I realize it is still on. As mentioned in other reviews the sizing is immensely helpful. I have always felt like a kid trying to put on dad's helmet so to have a product actually fit snugly is a change of pace. To keep this short the Vapor is a fantastic helmet for year round use. </span> September 7, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-09-07" /> </div><div id='95102539' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Vapor Helmet" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Paul</span><span itemprop="name"> The only helmet I wear when weight matters </span><span itemprop="description"> This helmet is simply astounding how light and comfortable it is. I've even slept in it when bivying on a route! Kudos to BD for making an amazing helmet in TWO SIZES! Yes, those of use with larger heads no longer have to settle for goofy helmets that don't fit properly! It does get a bit banged up through regular use (i.e., if you bump a rock, it will likely leave a small cosmetic impression on the helmet). But it is really not a big deal at all. I personally save the wear and tear on this helmet for when it matters, and use a second hard sided helmet for when it doesn't. </span> July 23, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-07-23" /> </div><div id='88904502' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Vapor Helmet" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Adam</span><span itemprop="name"> Glad I upgraded </span><span itemprop="description"> I've been climbing with the Vapor Helmet for over a year and I am extremely pleased with hit. After climbing with the BD Half Dome helmet for nearly 7 years, I decided it was time to upgrade. Contrasting the old Half Dome helmet with the new Vapor helmet, there are a few things that I noticed. The Vapor helmet: -has several more air vents, allowing your head to keep cool. Literally, I can feel the wind blow through it almost like a cycling helmet. -is much lighter. It's noticeably lighter when you pick them both up. -has both soft (fabric-like) and hard padding. -Fits snug and secure; I have a size 7 3/8&quot; head and chose the M/L size. -Rear strap collapses into the helmet for storage, which is my favorite feature. I'm very pleased with this purchase and glad that I upgraded. </span> May 24, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-05-24" /> </div><div id='88574232' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Vapor Helmet" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Doug</span><span itemprop="name"> Uber light and comfy </span><span itemprop="description"> This is my go-to lid for rock and ice. I have used it for over a year and it shows a little wear, but I grab it every time! It's not too hot to wear in the summer, it fits over my hoody in the winter and is so light I don't think twice about bringing it or wearing it. It does not slide down over my eyes and the chin strap is easily adjustable too. </span> May 18, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-05-18" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> document.getElementById('BVRRReviewsSoiSectionID_BD620215_cfg').style.display = 'none'; </script> <!--end-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOCPS_GEN" style="display:none;"> <li id="bvDateModified">2017-01-21</li> <li id="bvPL">bvseo-cps-pl-PRR</li> </ul> </div> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">2017-01-21 T09:56:28.275-06:00</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_lps, prod_bvrr, vn_prr_5.6</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp-1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_50, tr_50</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_BD620215_cfg, prod, sort_default</li> </ul> <!--begin-pagination--> <div class="BVRRPager BVRRPageBasedPager"> <span class="BVRRPageLink BVRRPageNumber"> <a href="http://blackdiamondequipment.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BlackDiamond-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=BD620215BLZZM_L1&bvrrp=0149-en_us/reviews/product/2/BD620215_cfg.htm" title="2" class="BVPageLink">2</a> </span><span class="BVRRPageLink BVRRPageNumber"> <a href="http://blackdiamondequipment.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BlackDiamond-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=BD620215BLZZM_L1&bvrrp=0149-en_us/reviews/product/3/BD620215_cfg.htm" title="3" class="BVPageLink">3</a> </span><span class="BVRRPageLink BVRRNextPage"><a href="http://blackdiamondequipment.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BlackDiamond-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=BD620215BLZZM_L1&bvrrp=0149-en_us/reviews/product/2/BD620215_cfg.htm" title="next" class="BVPageLink">next</a></span><span class="BVRRPagerArrows">&gt;&gt;</span> </div> <!--end-pagination--></div><meta charset="UTF-8" />
