/ Petzl meteor III+ and the sirroco
What do people think of the meteor? It's one of the most popular lightweight helmets on the market so it must be doing something right.
What do people think of the sirroco? I know it's pretty new and not as well used but somebody must have some experience with it?
Alot of people, though not everyone, are a bit skeptical about using them for winter climbing as with the general amount of crap falling down, these helmets may not last very long.
I personally use a grivel helmet for all these things and its not particularly heavy.
I appreciate its not a proper answer to your question, just my 2 pence.

This should be less of a problem with the sirrocco than it is with the current foam helmets. It uses a new material that is tougher and tends to deform then flex back to it's original shape rather than cracking.
