Sizing for the Petzl METEOR III Plus Climbing Helmet:
I had the last model of this helmet, and hit the ground with my head while wearing it. I broke my ankle during the fall requiring a bunch of screws, but not my skull. I would give this helmet five (5) stars, but apparently it is only good for one use. The back of the helmet was crushed. However, I liked it enough to buy another one. (Not all helmets come down as far in the back). My ankle cost $30,000 to fix; my head got off for the price of the helmet.
The beauty of this helmet is that it is like a bike helmet. If you fall and bash your head against the rock face or the ground, the foam crushes rather than your your head. It has decent side and back of head protection. I find it to be light and when I am wearing it (if it is not too hot out) I can almost forget I have it on. The lock system in the back folds in so you can jam the helmet into your bag without damaging it and it cinches to your head with ease.
