Collecting every piece of gear takes a little time.
We think it's worth the wait.
Give us a moment to collect those options for you.
Search by model name only, and spelling counts. Protip: Type slowly and wait for the auto-complete.
If you’ve already used other filters, this search bar will not override them.
Retired gear and unfilterable gear (missing key specs like price/weight) will not appear with this search.
It can be frustrating to find a piece of gear that you like, and then have no buying options. This filter aims to ease that problem. In the future we plan to add non-US retailers to this list and possibly call out each retailer directly.
We feel a little weird calling out Amazon separately as we're not huge fans of this mega-corp. We do this because we're partners with Amazon in multiple countries, so if somebody from the US, Canada, or UK clicks an Amazon link, it'll go to their country-specific Amazon page (when possible). At the moment, this is the only way to find non-US buying options on the site.
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 in the individual product page.
The full retail price in US dollars as stated by the brand/manufacturer/US distributer.
With non-US products, we have statically converted the price to US dollars.
This static conversion also means it's possible that there will be some misleading figures at times. The original price and currency will be noted on the individual product pages.
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.
This filter is geared towards folks on the edges of the helmet min and max sizes.
Since the majority of helmets accommodate heads that range from 21 to 24 inches (53 - 61 cm) we did not include those dimensions in our filter.
It's almost embarrassing how many hours we spent graphing helmet sizes to make these filters. We really wanted to create a filter where you could pick your preferred max and min range, but in practice that plan couldn't pass our user tests.
Bike Cert (EN 1078) - If the helmet is certified (to European standards) for climbing and biking. Not common.
Brim - If the helmet has a short brim that will protect from the sun and some rock/ice fall.
Comes in 2 sizes - If the helmet comes in multiple sizes versus a 1 size fits all model.
Face Shield Compatible - If the helmet has an attachment for a face shield. Common for Petzl, rare for most others.
MIPS technology - MIPS helps to reduce the impact forces on the helmet/head. MIPS is very common in bike helmets and comes at an added cost. Super rare.
RECCO® reflector - This is technology that helps a climber become found in an avalanche, if the search and rescue team has a RECCO® detector. It only adds 3 grams but it is slightly expensive. Very Rare.
Ski Cert (EN 1077) - If the helmet is certified (to European Standards) for climbing and skiing. This is becoming more common as SkiMo popularity increases.
Because the more you like your helmet, the more you'll wear it.
Note: If you choose a color and the picture does not seem to match, this should signify that it's also available in another color and we just don't have capabilities to show you that color on this page. If you click into the product you'll be able to see more product photos (hopefully!) of the color you're looking for.
If you'd like to narrow down your search by what others consider to be, "The Best Gear" this is your filter. We’re including all the media awards from the magazines like Climbing, Rock and Ice, and Alpinist, along with online resources like Gear Junkie, Outdoor Gear Labs, and more.
We scour the internet for new awards quarterly. If you know of some reputable awards that we’re missing, send us a note so we can check them out.
The list of manufacturers and brands that we have all the technical specs for.
If a brand is missing from this list, scroll to the bottom of this page to see all the unfilterable gear we track, and ideally it'll be there.
If you don't see the brand you're looking for in the unfilterable products area, definitely send us a note so we can look into it further.
We do our very best to find and display every technical spec for every piece of climbing gear in the world. But sometimes we just can’t dig up a spec or two (usually it's the official price and weight). Sadly, this means not every product is available for filtering and sorting :(
If we allowed products that are missing key specs to display in the results above, these incomplete products would need to appear no matter what filters you chose. This would make the filtered results cluttered and misleading. So instead of leaving out these incomplete products entirely, we're listing them below:
