I purchased this helmet becuase it is a hybrid design. It has a hard shell which typically offers better protection from rock fall, and it has foam liner which is typically offers better protection from hitting your head on large rocks....

I have found that it fits well, vents well, holds my BD headlamp well, and it is pretty light weight for a hybrid design helmet. I have at times forgotten that I was wearing it, which is a good thing!

~ Light
~ Fits my head well. (This is subjective)
~ Vents well.
~ Holds my headlamp well.
~ In my opinion, it is the best of both worlds in terms of hard shell vs foam.

~ I wish it had more than one head adjustment wheel.
~ I also wish it came in RED.
