/ Busted helmet
Has anyone else had this problem? I am going to attempt to send it back to Petzl on Monday. Anyone experienced their customer service on a 2 year old lid? Am I expecting too much for them to do something with it, or will they just say "general wear and tear"?
Hi Grid, I would have expected it from an all foam helmet, but the hard outer shell is suppose to protect the foam until it takes a big hit.
I agree, and will buy another one if need be. Seems like such an odd place to break.
I bought this one to replace my old style Elios that was used and abused for years.
Easily spotable if you look like a tangerine on a stick ;)
Why on earth would you put your lid in your hold luggage? Mine always comes in my carry on luggage so I know exactly what's happened to it and can keep an eye on it
Really? That's mental. What you going to do? Club someone to death with it. Ha ha
I've only carried my helmet as carry on (and only ever that) but I just wouldn't be comfortable with letting the luggage handlers.
