A pictoral representation of the UIAA-106 and EN-12492 standards for helmets.
Not quite available in the US, but priced in dollars from a canadian shop:
A light but robust moulded helmet which combines comfort with functionality. Size can be changed in seconds with the adjuster wheel, even with one hand. It has great ventilation, and padding both inside of the helmet and on the adjustable chin-strap. The ergonomic neck-line completes the Fuse Light’s features, and its shape means that there is no hindrance to vision – even when looking up. Also equipped with a handy headlamp holder.
In grams, the weight, as stated by the manufacturer/brand.
If there are differences in weight (due to multiple size or optional accessories) we note those here.
This is the gender as stated by the manufacturer/brand.
We use the term "Men" and "Unisex" interchangeably, as there is no difference between these types of helmets.
The sizing options of the helmet according to the manufacturer.

Quick Adjust refers to the straps of the helmet. Do you want the ability to ability to "quickly" adjust the fit. This could be a dial, or other plastic pieces.
Really, most climbers don't need to change the fit of the helmet often, unless you're climbing with and without hats, or you have big hair that flattens and then requires tightening after climbing for awhile.

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
