Tree Climber's Helmets

One of the most important safety items for tree climbing is the climber's helmet. Anyone working or climbing at heights must wear a climbing helmet and not a hard hat. Hard hats are designed to protect from objects falling from above only, and climbers face potential injury from the sides as well, making a climbing helmet designed to protect from side and back impact necessary. Today's climbing helmets are also designed to stay put in case of a fall, with adjustable suspension and chin straps. Without these, a hard hat is nearly useless in the tree if it falls off during an incident. Besides the obvious safety benefits of a helmet over a hard hat, they will also be much more comfortable and most can mount face or eye shields and hearing protection for added safety and convenience.

Vertex 2 Vent

The newly redesigned Petzl Vertex 2 helmets are our most popular choice for work at heights. The new Centerfit adjustment system with two adjustment knobs ensures optimal fit and stability by centering the head inside the shell. Compatible with Peltor ear muffs and Peltor wire mesh visor or clear plastic Petzl Vizir. The vent holes on the Vertex 2 Vent have shutters to adjust air flow. Shock absorption is achieved through deformation of the outer shell. Range of adjustability is 20.9” - 24.8”. Weighs 16 oz. Made in France.

Petzl Alveo Vent Helmet

The new Alveo Vent is Petzl's lightest weight and most ventilated helmet yet. It fits closer to the skull than the Vertex and is therefore more stable and less noticeable. The new Centerfit adjustment system with two adjustment knobs ensures optimal fit and stability by centering the head inside the shell. Compatible with Peltor ear muffs (SAF203 and SAF205) and Peltor wire mesh visor (SAF127) or clear plastic Petzl Vizir (SAF177). Shock absorption is achieved through deformation of the expanded polystyrene liner. Weighs 12 oz. Made in France.
