The Petzl Meteor 4 is a lightweight, breathable, very comfortable modern classic climbing helmet, ideal for rock climbing, via ferrata and mountaineering.
The model that many subsequent polystyrene/polycarbonate helmets have founded their own success on, the latest version of the Petzl Meteor has all the best features of its predecessor. Now coming in two sizes to allow for those with smaller heads, there are larger openings providing excellent ventilation, and there is now a new magnetic buckle which allows the chinstrap to be attached/adjusted with one hand. As before, the helmet still comes with its innovative adjustment system, which allows each climber to adjust his/her helmet to their head shape.
