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 2 words: comfortable and light Fortunately I haven't had to actually "use" this helmet yet, but I've worn it and it is by far the lightest and most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. LOVE it! April 1, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by When light is right, this is your helmet. I love this thing. It's a pricey ounce-and-a-half compared to the Vector, but it's worth it if you're shaving ounces. Surprisingly durable for the weight, my Vapor has stood up well to an entire year of regular use. March 15, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great, lightweight helmet Super comfortable, lightweight, and breathable. A solid product and I like the headlight compatibility. March 3, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by light, well ventilated, and comfortable This is my fourth climbing helmet in the past 15 years, and is by far the best. The lighter weight, and superior ventilation makes this helmet well worth its price. It has excellent adjustably, and I am always comfortable even when wearing a beanie or hood. The harness does a good job of holding the helmet square on your head, whereas my previous helmets would often wind up sitting crooked causing me to look like even more of a dork than I am. The headlamp clips work perfectly, although I haven’t felt the need to remove them, so I am not sure how well that works from an operational standpoint. I haven’t tried using goggles yet, but sunglasses cause no interference or discomfort. Because of the alarming lack of weight, I was initially concerned about its durability. But after throwing it in my pack (often with a rack on top of it), and after banging it against rocks, and brush-busting with it dangling from the outside of my pack etc., that concern has been put to rest. It has nothing more than the typical scuffs and nicks that inevitably appear on any climbing helmet. The Black Diamond Vapor is a great product! February 10, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for SAR I use this helmet on search and rescue. A great feature is the headlamp attachment clips it comes with. Very secure and solid. They don't stick out to far from the helmet body and do a fine job of holding my headlamp in place. The helmet is comfortable and light. Good air circulation. February 6, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Put in on and forget about it... Fits great and is incredibly light. I often forget that it's even on. I use it for all of my climbing and backcountry skiing. The foam is a little on the fragile side and is prone to getting dinged up a bit but that just adds character. Put it on and forget about it... February 5, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by If you love it, you wear it... Everywhere. The greatest benefit of wearing this one is you forget you have it on. Fit best over a toque, buff or headband. Don't over stuff it in your pack, a little more fragile than other helmets. Even though it is more fragile, this helmet deserves full star rating for its fit & weight. Used for Alpine, Rock & Ice climbing. S January 13, 2016
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Very light, one fit and one design issue Finally upgrading from my ancient but much beloved Ecrin Roc. This Vapor helmet is outrageously light. It feels good when on my head but I wish I could fine tune the straps that encircle my ears to dial in the fit on my head. Secondly, when coiling a rope over my shoulders or when wearing more bulky clothing, I have had the rope and clothing snag the tightening system and either tighten or, more often, loosen the helmet. Seems to me a poor design to have the cinching system able to be snagged by random things. November 2, 2015
