Pros Affordable, easily adjustablePros: Includes the MIPS BPS, comfortable fit, highly adjustable, more durable than most foam helmetsSuper light, very comfortable, great ventilation, versatile for use while ski mountaineering, protects all sides of headLightweight, great ventilationLightweight, easily adjustable with slider bar, not as expensive as Sirocco, well ventilated
Cons Heavy, poorly ventilated, not super comfortable, headlamp attachment difficult to useNot super light, pricey, black absorbs heat from sunNot as durable as ABS options, expensive, less easily adjustable, magnetic buckle not for everyoneFragile, chin strap doesn't adjust forward, removable headlamp clips are easy to lose or forgetMagnetic buckle collects dirt, not as cheap as BD Half Dome
Bottom Line Not a helmet we would readily recommend, despite its affordabilityThe optimal combination of the MIPS harness with EPP foam for side impact and a durable ABS plastic shellYou want a helmet that you are never annoyed to wear, and this is that helmetLightweight and comfortable but can't even be put in your pack without denting itA highly adjustable climbing and ski mountaineering helmet made of EPS foam
