Petzl Meteor Helmet, 40% off — $59.97 $99.95

“Don’t let a hot head get the best of you when you’re leading a difficult pitch of ice—designed with huge amounts of ventilation and a lightweight, protective design, the Petzl Meteor Climbing Helmet is ideal for ice climbing and alpine ascents. Petzl used polycarbonate for the shell to keep the Meteor lightweight and ready to absorb impact, and the helmet’s polystyrene liner is breathable, comfortable, and tough as they come.” — Backcountry

Black Diamond Vapor Helmet, 15% off — $118.96 $139.95

“Whether you’re clipping bolts in Utah’s Maple Canyon or navigating through seldom-traveled trad pitches, strap on the ultralight Black Diamond Vapor Helmet for tough head protection. The low-profile design and featherlight weight of under seven ounces make it easy to forget you’re even wearing a helmet. Plus, the geometric vents provide ample air-flow for hot summer days at the crag, so you don’t have to wait for send temps to finish your project.” — BC

CAMP USA Armour Helmet, 15% off — $50.96 $59.95

“The popular Armour Helmet from CAMP USA has been updated this season with a new fit profile to accommodate a wider range of head sizes, new colors, and a new, easier to use rotating size adjustment wheel. Features from previous models remain the same such as the multiple side vents for cool climbing comfort, a padded chin strap, and large, durable headlamp holder clips for easy attachment of lights when you’re climbing past sunset or before sunrise.” — BC

Mammut El Cap Helmet, 15% off — $59.46 $69.95 

“Named for the looming vertical master, the Mammut El Cap Climbing Helmet boasts a tech-savvy design that its namesake would deem worthy. Protect your head and focus on your vertical progress.” — BC

Edelrid Shield II Climbing Helmet, 15% off — $84.96 $99.95

“Edelrid made its Men’s Shield II Climbing Helmet lightweight and robust so you don’t have a reason to leave it behind when you tackle long, demanding routes. Its In-Mold construction consists of a tough polycarbonate shell and an expanded polystyrene foam that you can remove if you need more room. The Wing-Fit adjustable system includes a fully adjustable chin strap and a rear dial for a comfortable fit. Airflow ventilation utilizes ten large openings to provide all the fresh air your melon needs, and four headlamp clips make sure you don’t have to adjust your headlamp’s band every fifteen feet on your rappel.” — BC

CAMP USA Rock Star Helmet, 15% off — $42.46 $49.95

“The CAMP Rock Star Helmet uses a simple, traditional design to provide a bomber brain bucket for climbers who don’t like overly complicated tools. CAMP added a highly adjustable suspension system to let this helmet fit a wide range of head sizes with or without a beanie.” — BC
