The Vertex Best is a popular choice for climbers who work in rainy climates or who don't want debris, critters, or other nuisances getting into their helmet. The helmet's unventilated shell helps protect against electrical hazards and molten metal splash. Shock absorption achieved through deformation of the outer shell. The six-point mesh headband helps ensure comfort, and the CenterFit system adjusts the headband to provide a secure fit and keep the helmet centered and optimally stable on the head. The Vertex Best has a chin strap designed to limit the risk of losing your helmet during a fall (strength greater than 50 daN). Compatible with Vizir face shield, Peltor ear muffs, and peltor face shield (with ear muffs or adapter). Compatible clips and slot for mounting an elastic band headlamp or PIXA headlamp (headlamp not included).

Stocked in Yellow, available in other colors by special order, which will normally ship in 5-7 days.

The Vertex 2 Best meets ANSI Z89.1-2009 Type I Class E standards for electrical insulation. Weighs 16 oz.
