The Mammut Wall Rider MIPS Climbing Helmet is protective, breathable, and most importantly, is the first climbing helmet to use MIPS to protect against rotational impacts. The various adjustment points, comfortable fit, and added cushioning all provide a great all-day helmet option.

The Petzl Sirocco Helmet is a champion for its light weight and impressive durability, allowing people to look past the high price, especially for the new and improved version that was unveiled in 2017. So light that it can be easily forgotten on your head, it is very comfortable and durable to everyday bumps while also offering full protection from rocks and falls. Although the magnetic buckle can pick up a lot of debris, this complaint is small for those who can afford to buy this highly effective and beloved helmet.
The Black Diamond Vapor helmet’s appeal comes from how light and comfortable it is (you’ll forget it’s on your head). Ideal for fast and light alpine ascents and climbing on hot days, this helmet is more on the fragile side (dents and dings easily) so you’ll need to handle it with care.
