A Helmet for All Occasions?

Is there a multipurpose helmet out there I can use for skiing, climbing etc. or should I just plan on getting one for each season/sport?

Answer:

We’ve never reviewed such a helmet, but your question got me to thinking that maybe we should! I did some digging and came up with two options for you:

The Camp Pulse is certified for climbing and skiing only. It’s headlamp and goggle compatible and costs $100 bucks. Check out camp-usa.com for more details.

The Kong Skarab is meant for climbing, cycling, skate boarding, paddling, and horseback riding. It’s well ventilated, has headlamp straps, and goes for about $150.

As for me, I’m gonna order them both up for testing. Stay tuned…you might see a review in the pages of Backpacker or here on Backpacker.com soon!
