The Petzl Boreo climbing helmet is the perfect combination of the ABS shell style helmets for durability and full foam helmets for front, side and rear impact protection as well as on top. Normally you have to sit in one of two camps - durability or full side protection. But now with the Petzl Boreo you can have both.
Traditional ABS style shell helmets focus all their impact protection on top to guard against rock fall. While this is how most severe head injuries occur while climbing it isn't all of them. Sometimes due to an awkward fall or falling rocks rebounding, impact can come from the back, front and side. In the past if you wanted protection for all angles you had to really go an "alpine" style helmet that is basically foam all the way around. But for cragging, not to mention canyoning and caving, these can get real beat up because they lack the tough shell .
Now enter the Petzl Boreo...
If you're after a helmet for rock climbing, cragging or multi-pitch, canyoning, caving, ice climbing or mountaineering you can now get full protection in a helmet that is going to take a beating for some time.
