Why We Love It
It's lightweight, easy to pack, and has cool clips to hold a light when the sun goes down.
Where We Use It
We love to use this anytime we want to keep our head safe while climbing...which is every time. It's so easy to pack, it's hard to find an excuse not to have it on hand.
Providing ultralight, low-profile protection, unparalleled ventilation and a secure and super-comfortable fit, the Black Diamond Vapor helmet is a go-anywhere cragging lid that proves helmets aren't just for multi-pitch trad climbs and big alpine faces. We engineered a sheet of Kevlar and a series of carbon rods in between co-molded EPS foam and a polycarbonate shell to keep the weight at a minimum while keeping you protected. The Vapor's ratcheting suspension tucks into the helmet for compact storage in your pack or haul bag, and removable headlamp clips secure your light on pre-dawn starts or when rapping after dark.
