How to Choose A Climbing Helmet?
Wearing a climbing helmet is an important part of keeping yourself protected at the crag, wether your climbing or belaying. A helmet will protect you from rocks falling down on you, you falling down and hitting the rock or banging your head in the overhang. When getting a helmet there are three main things to consider, helmet type, type of climbing you do and getting the right fit.
All helmets must meet industry standards for impact protection, with the standard for overhead protection being greater than the side-protection standard.
There are 3 types of climbing helmets: hard shell, foam, and hybrid. As with all things, each type has its advantages and disadvantages. In this section we will only look at the hybrid helmets.
Hybrid Helmets are exactly what their name suggests, a mix of hard shell and foam designs. They feature a thicker ABS shell with some EPS foam. This fusion of technologies generates a well-rounded helmet that’s not too heavy and still offers great durability.
