Voted 5/5

Almost feels like I'm not wearing a helmet. Have used it for rock climbing and I don't notice its even on. It does not disturb my view interfere with my climbing.

I got this helmet on sale, and that is the sole reason why I bought it. The helmet is good quality, and it gets the job done. I would like to see better straps on the ears. It also is an awkward looking helmet in pictures.
