Topic - Simond (Decathlon) Calcit Helmet

Annoying Twit - on 14 Jan 2013
Are the 29.99 Decathlon Calcit helmets suitable for indoor climbing for an adult?

An earlier post in this forum includes positive comment on the 20 more basic Simond helmets http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=533019 But to my eyes, the slightly more expensive model does look a significant step up.

Here's the 29.99 model: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/calcit-light-white-id_8159326.html

Here's the 20 version: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/calcit-id_8175049.html

I have noticed that apart from in scheduled classes, a large proportion of the climbers at my wall don't seem to wear helmets at all. This perhaps tempts me to skimp a bit on the helmet more than I would do otherwise.

I've bought own-brand stuff from Decathlon before (not climbing gear), and it was decent.
