A revolutionary helmet that's ideal for long routes, alpine climbs and other weight-sensitive missions, the Black Diamond Women's Vector Helmet combines lightweight protection, excellent ventilation and 'barely there' comfort like never before. The geometric, co-molded EPS foam and polycarbonate shell provides full-coverage protection while remaining incredibly lightweight and comfortable, and the generous ventilation ports keep air flowing on warm days. The ratcheting suspension tucks away for easy storage, and when the sun gets down before you do, the Vector's in-mold headlamp clips provide an ultra-secure attachment.

Vector Helmet - Women's is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ladies get the best colors Sooo I got a small head. While trying to pick a helmet, I was less than impressed with the Vector colorways so I looked at the women's. And I found my helmet. Lightweight. Nice ventilation. Comfortable fit system. Would totally by again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color is as shown in photos Awesome product, and the helmet that in Black Diamond's photos is grey with blue around the bottom arrived and was....who would have thought....grey with blue around the bottom. I read the other reviewers comment and could not help but laugh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Comfortable This helmet is lightweight and comfortable enough to never have an excuse not to wear one! Once I put my helmet on for the day it rarely comes off even hanging out at a crag. It took a bit of a break in period, I would get a hot spot near the front of the helmet but that has faded away. After about 4 years it shows some wear and tear even though I have not had substantial impacts but more from carrying it in my pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultralight and comfortable I bought this helmet for a climbing trip to Greece. I have a small head, and I've had trouble finding a helmet that fits and does not give me a headache. I was able to adjust this helmet to fit perfectly. It is ultralight, comfortable and vents well. I had no problem wearing it all day in the heat. It protected my head from all of the protruding rock features in Kalymnos. Thank you Black Diamond!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Colour not the same as line pictures. The helmet is great, fits perfectly. Super light and super comfort. Even over a beanie fit is absolutely perfect. For this point 5 ***** Negative side: I bought it on line. I wanted it white....all website shown it white with a blue part at the border...... when it arrived.... colours are slightly different.... what you see for white is GREY!! you can mismatch namess.... glacier... bla bla bla....but it's grey and all th photos on online shops show a white/blue. It's a issue ...a lot of women buy following the colour they want.... if you show white it MUST be white. Not a different grey that under photolights gets white. Then I checked on line for some reviews.... yes, in those photos ( normal ones, not photshopped) it was soft grey. Lighter than the one I recived, but always grey. I urgently needed the helmet and I decided to keep it, but a lot of trust for Black Diamond has blown away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfy A great compromise between light weight and price. I don't yet know how durable it is, as I've been very careful with it. I do stuff it inside the top of my pack and it still looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy I have a child's size head and this helmet actually stays on! It hits my ears a little, but a drastic improvement over anything else I've owned.
