    Comments about Black Diamond Half Dome Helmet:

    This helmet was available at a great price so I had to get one. At first, it felt a little uncomfortable. My head hasn't changed any but it definitely feels a lot better after trying it on a few times. It is very adjustable to fit almost every size head, and I really like the clips for attaching a headlamp. It feels very sturdy and I trust it to protect my noggin.

        Nice helmet for the price. Fits well and looks better than some other helmets. I'm a big fan of Black Diamond & feel they have great quality gear at good prices in general.

          Comments about Black Diamond Half Dome Helmet:

          I own a previous generation Half Dome Helmet, and found that the new ones are a bit lighter and more comfortable, but also feel slightly less solid. I'm sure this is probably thanks to industry pressures to go with light and fast as opposed to (slightly) heavier and rugged. That being said, I have no doubt that the new helmets are good performers- I've already banged my head with it on a few climbs with no ill effects!

            Great product I originally got the petzl elios in a size 1 and it didnt fit, but im glad it didnt because I got this one in a size med/large and not only does it fit better but it looks, and feels better. not to mention its made better. I would go with Med/large though my head isnt what i would consider big and it has a good amount of ajustment.
