Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice, lightweight helmet Really like this product so far. Extremely light, very comfortable, and (for the most part) stays on your head while climbing/rappelling. Clips for the headlamp are a great dawn patrol feature. Exterior is susceptible to dents so don't pack it deep in the bag near sharp objects. August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lightweight helmet I really love the Vector helmet. It's lightweight, comfortable, and easy to adjust. Fits well both with or without a beanie underneath, and it got the looks! If I should point out one thing, it do build a bit, especially on the top. An even more low profile version would be an approvement. Overall a great, lightweight, out-of-your-way climbing helmet! May 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great helmet! The Vector is a great helmet - I tried it out with a quick run up Yellow Spur in Eldo in howling wind on a sunny Saturday. The shape is solid, fits even my small diameter head snugly, with no sloppy moving around as you look up, down and sideways for gear. It was light enough and fit well enough that I forgot I had it on, and that is the most important thing for a helmet other than the safety benefits. All in all, great product. One small request for improvement - the padding on the forehead was fairly scratchy, either due to extra Velcro or maybe the thread where it was sewn. It was minor, and I'll find a fix for that soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, strong, mostly light, light, light This is a great helmet, great fitting, great venting and very light. I know there are lighter helmets these days but this is plenty light for me. I use it alpine climbing, ski mountaineering, rock climbing...and even as my mountain biking helmet. Is that a bad idea? Thankfully, I have only had it tested by some small rockfall and although slightly nicked and dented, but my head is not! Excellent helmet, you cant go wrong with this one. March 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice! Nice helmet, lightweight makes it easy to wear without knowing it is on. Improvements could still be made-It gets beat up easily, I mean easily...….Fit is large looking-I'd like a lower profile. February 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product, but needs some work. I am a climbing instructor for a boy scout camp. I have to wear this helmet anywhere from 10-14 hours a day and I love how it feels, how well it fits, and how light it is! I only have one problem with this helmet, When you wear this helmet as much as I do the padding starts to smell, a lot, It really does not matter what you try to do. November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike. Took this helmet out of the box, adjusted, and wore it for two days of high angle rope rescue training, never once wanted to take it off. November 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing helmet! One of the climbing rangers I work with raves about his, so I figured I'd grab one myself. What a great helmet! Super comfy, well ventilated, great fit and light weight. I love how the suspension systems packs into the helmet as well. I can't see this thing ever sliding back on my head as my previous helmets do. Great product! October 4, 2013
