This product has an updated version the Mammut Skywalker 2. With a name like Skywalker, we expected that this helmet from Mammut would be worthy of Jedi Knights across the galaxy. Instead, we found it to be a clumsy helmet better fit for JarJar Binks.
The Skywalker II is the heaviest and poorest fitting helmet in our review. It sits very high on the head and is top heavy, which often causes it to shift to the side. Most of our testers found this to be very irritating and did not like wearing this helmet.
Typically hardshell helmets like the Skywalker are both more durable and considerably less expensive than lightweight foam helmets. The Skywalker's shell is just as durable as other hardshell helmets but the inside foam seems to be slightly more prone to breakage than other models. At $60, it retails for the same as our Best Buy Award winner the Black Diamond Half Dome, but the Half Dome is a better performing helmet.
