Black Diamond's Vector helmet features a lightweight, super sleek geometric design with generous ventilation which has climbers raving. Reviews have claimed that it is so light and comfortable that it goes unnoticed for hours on end. Its co-molded EPS foam and polycarbonate shell provides full-coverage protection while remaining incredibly lightweight and comfortable, and the generous ventilation ports keep air flowing on warm days. The ratcheting suspension tucks away for easy storage.
Keeping with its discrete nature, the Vector has in-molded slots (which you probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't just told you!) for a head torch should you wish to climb in the dark.
Style, comfort and practicality, this helmet has it all.

Super comfortable, really light.
This is my second vector helmet, my first one cracked whilst in my pack when someone dropped it, so although very frustrating, I suppose you could say it does its job when a fully loaded climbing pack is dropped onto it, it cracks. The helmet is really light, which means it can feel a little flimsy, but for me, it fits my head perfectly which is the most important thing in a helmet; the adjustment at the back is a very neat design, easy to adjust, and tucks up into the helmet when you're packing it. I feel as though your head sits in the helmet, rather than some helmets where it feels like there's a colander on top of your head, so offers really good coverage, and because of that design and light nature you don't end up with uncomfortable pressure points over your head - I've worn it happily for full days without any discomfort. You're not going to get totally robust and super light in the same package, but for me this is a great balance. Don't drop your bag or sit on it and you'll have a great time!
