Climbing helmet standards have typically been focused on protecting against impacts from above (e.g. rockfall).

Check out our review.

The Black Diamond Vector falls in between, making it a versatile option. Check out our full review, with comparisons to several helmets from Black Diamond, Petzl, and Mammut.
