Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike 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!

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.

Super comfortable, lightweight, and breathable. A solid product and I like the headlight compatibility.

by Kevin 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!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nat 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...

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lucas 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.
