Best helmet out there
Review by: chrismcnamara, 2010-06-21
The Meteor III is a runaway favorite of all helmets i have used. This is the lightest, most comfortable helmet tested. If you can afford it and are looking for the best (and have the awareness to take proper care of it), go with the Meteor III. It has total top–of-the-head coverage, is fully adjustable and has a comfortable suspension system. It's the perfect helmet for climbing at your limit, especially if you're extremely weight–conscious. Most importantly, it is one of the few helmets that completely eliminates the excuse to not wear a helmet. Unless you are concerned about how chic you look in photos, there is no reason to climb without a helmet, especially when it is this light and comfortable.
