Wearing a helmet at the crag should be second nature, just like putting on your harness. If yours is looking a bit battered, or if you've never owned one before and are going to be venturing out onto the crags this spring, now's the time to get one sorted.
The 360 is a tough and lightweight helmet, perfect for all round rock and mountaineering use. It features a tough polycarbonate shell over an EPS inner for shock absorption, 4 head torch grips and a really simple wheel-adjustment system. Comes in a range of colours and two sizes.
The Rock Lite is constructed from a thin polycarbonate shell over a much thicker EPS foam body, making it really lightweight and comfortable to wear. It also comes with head torch grips, and benefits from removable & washable padding. One of the key features of the Rock Lite is that you can add Wild Country's 'Alpine Shield' (sold separately) to it, which is a tough plastic shell perfect for winter climbing and alpinism.
