The Black Diamond Vapor Climbing Helmet
Providing ultralight, low-profile protection, unparalleled ventilation and a secure and super-comfortable fit, the Black Diamond Vapor helmet is a go-anywhere cragging lid that proves helmets aren't just for multi-pitch trad climbs and big alpine faces.
A sheet of Kevlar and a series of carbon rods have been engineered in between co-molded EPS foam and a polycarbonate shell making this the lightest climbing helmet around while keeping you protected. The Vapor's ratcheting suspension tucks into the helmet for compact storage in your pack or haul bag, and removable headlamp clips secure your light on pre-dawn starts or dusk abseils.
'Black Diamond says that they made the Vapor light and low-riding because they wanted a helmet that climbers would wear all the time... Until now I’ve never worn a helmet for rock climbing. The Vapor has changed my ways.' Rock & Ice magazine
