SUPERBLOG gear review
The problem is this: the folding helmet reduces the volume of the helmet by a small amount (not as much as I'd hoped), but the folding helmet felt significantly heavier than the helmet I already have. I won't be buying a folding helment.
I'll stick with my strategy of avoiding helmets whenever possible, which is most of the time. For rock climbing or skiing that seems like it might involve some objective danger (falling objects), I'll take my light helmet. For a long approach, it seems like the light helmet strapped to the outside of the pack will serve me better than a heavier helmet that, while it may fold, would still occupy way too much space in the pack.
The pussy is really happy and I'm going to scratch my ski bases tomorrow.
