The chin strap is very anoying. I have to readjust them very time I put on the helmet. Otherwise, an ok helmet.

When I tried this helmet on in the store, I thought for sure I'd be exceedingly pleased with its fit and performance. Its initial draw was the velcoe adjustment headband, which I prefered to other helmets I've used (such as Petzl's Ecrin Roc). The headband is fine, but unfortunately the chin strap requires fine tuning to keep the half dome from sliding back off your frontal lobe. Also, if not adjusted well, the buckle on the chin strap can chafe big time on your chin.
Back to the positive, my half dome has protected my crown on awkward roof moves, from a few pebbles, and (when adjusted well) it has provided me with the extra safe feeling I want from my helmet.
I wear a helmet on trad leads and multi-pitch, and sometimes sport leading. I also use this helmet at work on ropes courses and teaching climbing.
I got a deal on mine, so I'm pleased. But at 60 clams, there are other helmets out there for the bargain shopper. Mine is white, no big deal, but if you are obsessed with day-glo orange, the price tag is not an issue, huh.
