An all around helmet designed for rock and alpine use. Polycarbonite molded shell and web harness support for durability and ease of adjustment. Features include comfortable, micro-fleece lined, padded suspension, and durable polycarbonate construction. It is certified by both CE and UIAA. An elastic headlamp holder and grommet reenforced vent holes make this a value. One size fits all sizing.



This helmet is similar to the Camp Rock Star which does not have microfleece & headlamp attachments.

I just bought my second one on sale for $36. It's not pretty, it's not the lightest, it's not the most comfortable. My helmets take a beating on the way to climbs and this helmet is comfy enough, adjustable and cheap. Try one.

No Frills main stream helmet
I bought one of these back in 1998 and have used it for everything from caving to normal rock climbing to ice climbing. A classic choice for outdoor ed establishments due to its shear durability and cost. For me it has proved totally reliable, comfortable and very fit for purpose. Downsides it isn't the lightest, it doesn't have the best ventillation and it doesn't have all the technical wizardry of many yet for value and shere durability and longevity it will be hard to beat.
