The Meteor III or Meteor 3 is now called the Petzl Meteor III Plus. We can't tell any difference between the two other than new colors. If you have a Meteor III, no need to upgrade to the Plus. Check our our review of the Petzl Meteor III Plus. It won our Editors' Choice Award for climbing helmet because it is so light and comfortable. It is the lightest helmet we have tested and has the best ventilation. Also, check out our complete Climbing Helmet Review to see how other helmets compared to each other.
