I don't use this helmet for climbing. I use it for caving mostly.
I don't like the headlamp keeper directly in the back, it causes the battery pack on my petzl myo3 to be cocked to one side and compensate with the straps. Other than that, i like it's low profile and how you can look up (or forward while crawling) and see where you're going... i.e... there isn't a huge bill or lip on the front. Also, it's great for caving because there aren't any holes or slots for pointy rocks to get through. I've tried a couple of other helmets from other brands and this is probably my favorite so far. The price is nice too.
