How to Pick the Best Rock Climbing Helmet for Your Needs

Whether you’re looking for men's or women's climbing helmets, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Hard Shell vs Shelled Foam: There are two main types of rock climbing helmets. Hard shell helmets are lower-priced, more durable, and offer a longer lifespan. Shelled foam, on the other hand, offers excellent ventilation and lower weight. The type of climbing you do will dictate which of these is right for you.
  • Getting the Right Fit: Safety matters, but so does comfort. You want a helmet that fits squarely and securely on your head - with the front rim just across your forehead. You should also have easily adjustable chin straps and the ability to adjust the width of the helmet if you want to wear a beanie underneath.
