Light, versatile, and protective. These are but three adjectives among many that can be used to describe the Petzl Meteora Helmet. With an In-Mold construction and women-specific cutout on the adjustment band to sit over a ponytail, the Meteora is designed to sit low on your head, increasing coverage for maximal protection. The large and numerous vents on the Meteora encourage airflow, helping keep you cool whether ascending the skin track or thrutching up a heinous off-width crack. The EPS foam injected inside a lightweight polycarbonate shell keeps the weight down and protection up, helping ensure you’ll barely even notice the helmet is there. From crack climbing in the desert, visits to your favorite powder stash, or icy couloirs in the Spring, the Petzl Meteora will be there for them all.

Questions & Reviews
This helmet has two clips in the front, and a bungee at the back. Keep in mind that with any helmet, the headlamp will be exactly where you'll want to put your goggles on the climbs. If you want to avoid taking your goggles off your helmet, maybe consider a headlamp that mounts directly to your helmet (such as the Gloworm) so you can put it above where your goggles would go on your forehead.
