simple light and adjustable. Good ventilation. Wear a helmet, the time will come when you need it! Mine has kept a few hundred pounds of ice (not all at one time) and a few flying rocks away from my head, and still going strong.
wait for a sale

Great way to save IQ points. The Elios is light, easily adjusted, and well ventilated. I rarely notice I have it on while climbing. With helmets like this around why aren't more people using them?
A little pricey if not on sale.

Review by ndonaldj on Mar. 27, 2012
Light weight, holds a headlamp really well. chin straps are comfortable. Works well for climbing, canyoneering, and caving.
The adjustment thing on the back hurts the little bump on the back of my head if I wear it for a long time. But thats probably just me.

Review by drflex on Jan. 11, 2012
Great ventilation. Fits a wide range of head sizes, so I can wear it over a hat on a cold day. Easy to buckle/un-buckle in a hurry. Plastic piece on end of strap so it won't feed all the way out of buckle.

One of the less expensive helmets but is of super quality. Fully adjustable, though I recommend going to Petzl's website to get familiar with the sizing. Has lamp clips. Not heavy either.

Review by Benzesp on Dec. 15, 2014
Keeps pesky falling rocks from killing you. Price is right. This is probably the first and last helmet you will need to buy. Headlamp fits perfectly.
Fit is kinda weird, chin strap will chafe you if worn for long periods of time
Whatever has a better chin strap and is the same price.

Comfortable helmet with decent vents and good head lamp attachment.
Plastic tightening system gets bent out of shape in duffel bag and loose the fit.

Review by yjenerator on May. 02, 2011
Super easy to adjust, and comfy.
Make sure it's adjusted right or it will flop around on your head. Also tends to slip a little when you get sweaty.

Review by rayjkline on Oct. 28, 2013
Very comfortable. Good color selections. Durable. It also fits many different shapes of heads. No problems so far and I have used it every weekend for 4 four months.
Try and find it on sale or else it is a bit pricey.

Review by duncanlennon on Nov. 29, 2008
Lightweight, adjustable, relatively cheap. Arguably the best helmet.
Straps can sometimes get in the way of your ears
NOT Ecrin. Probably Meteor, as it's lighter.

Review by deathbybowtie on Oct. 05, 2009
Comfortable, easy to adjust, pretty light.
Could probably use some more ventilation (I sweat like a pig in it)

Review by bencounter on Dec. 11, 2009
Used for caving and climbing - no brain damage so far. Great helmet. Lightweight - clips around side are great for holding a headlamp.
Warm helmet - sweat like crazy in a cave.

Review by ZGClimbin on Feb. 08, 2011
Light weight, Awesome summer ventilation and easy to tape up in the winter to keep warm. A breeze to adjust on the fly if wearing a hat underneath. So comfy i forget I'm wearing it

Review by skipollini on Oct. 29, 2008
Super light and very comfortable, not to mention it protects your melon quite nicely.
It's a little moody getting the fit dialed in just right, but once you've got it set, it fits great.
