A helmet that comes apart! Wild Country Alpine Shield
Posted by Neil | January 12, 2011
The new cool new Alpine Shield helmet is uniquie. It is both a regular style climbing helmet and also an ice climbing lid.
The Alpine Shield helmet is the worlds first truly modular climbing helmet and the first to allow a choice of protection levels at the turn of a screw! A high performance EPS inner is complemented by an optional outer shell that attaches quickly and easily to make a stronger, safer unit for harsher conditions. Below is a review posted on UKClimbing.com
Reviewed very positively by Hamish Dunn he says of the Alpine Shield that:
'This helmet will suit the climber who wants to buy one helmet which will perform in all types of climbing. A balance of looks and usability coupled with a reasonable price tag make this a strong contender in the ever growing helmet market. When you consider the cost of buying a hard shell and a foam shell helmet it's really a no-brainer.
