Black Diamond Vapor Helmet


Share on:

Providing ultralight, low-profile protection, unparalleled ventilation and a secure and super-comfortable fit, the Black Diamond Vapor helmet is a go-anywhere cragging lid that proves helmets aren't just for multi-pitch trad climbs and big alpine faces. Designed to keep the weight at a minimum while keeping you protected, this helmet features a sheet of engineered Kevlar and a series of carbon rods in between co-molded EPS foam and a polycarbonate shell. The Vapor's ratcheting suspension tucks into the helmet for compact storage in your pack or haul bag, and removable headlamp clips secure your light on pre-dawn starts or when rapping after dark.


  • Co-molded EPS foam with polycarbonate shell is lower profile than the Vector
  • Geometric, open-air design provides unparalleled airflow
  • Ratchet adjuster with molded push buttons
  • Headlamp clips are removable for reduced snagging on slings and clothing


  • Weight: [S/M] 186 g (6.6 oz); [M/L] 199 g (7 oz)
  • Size Range: [S/M] 53 - 59 cm (21 - 23 in); [M/L] 58 - 63 cm (23 - 25 in)
