Petzl Boreo Helmet - White




The Petzl Boreo helmet is designed with durability and versatility in mind. Climbing, mountaineering, via ferrata, canyoning – it can do it all!

The hybrid construction starts with a thick ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) outer shell, designed to be impact and scratch resistant for optimal durability. EPP (expanded polypropylene) and EPS (expanded polystyrene) line the shell to absorb shock and further protect the head from any impacts.

The Boreo carries Petzl’s TOP AND SIDE PROTECTION product label, highlighting the expanded protection that the design offers. Lateral, front and rear impact zones have been considered and protected against with the head-covering design and lower rear.

It is suitable for climbing, mountaineering, via ferrata, canyoning and caving, with four clips for a headtorch attachment and VIZION eye shield compatibility.

A climbing helmet is designed to protect you from more than just rock fall. Type the words “climbing whippers” into a search engine and you won’t have to watch many before you swear never to climb without a helmet ever again!

Fundamentally, to wear a climbing helmet is personal choice. However, your head is THE most important part of your body so to help you protect it, we have gathered lots of information below so you can choose the best helmet for the type of climbing you enjoy……

- What are the different construction types of climbing helmet?
- I can use my ski/bike/water/Rope Access helmet for climbing right?
- How are helmets tested?
- Do I need to check my size?
- What features should I look for?
- Why does my helmet have a shelf life?
- How can I tell when my helmet should be retired?
- How can I recycle my helmet?

Top Tips to make the right choice:

The best helmet is the most comfortable one that fits your head. If you can’t feel it on, then it is absolutely the right one for you (and you are more likely to wear it!)

Try on as many different styles as you can. If you wear a ponytail when you climb, make sure you try your helmet on with it. If you are planning on wearing a hat underneath – make sure you try your helmet on with it. If you plan on keeping your sandwiches in between the cradle and helmet shell – errr, don’t bring them into the shop.

Wearing a brightly coloured helmet can make you quicker to find in an emergency (and looks great in the pics!)

  • Petzl Boreo Helmet - White review by Ira Fishman, on 01/09/2021

    This is my first climbers helmet, not that I engage in climbing, but have had a severe concussion in the past. Thus, I will use it when wandering around the fells in tricky situations. The helmet looks well-made and is easily fitted to ones individual head-size. Hopefully I will not need to test its protective ability by falling on my head. Ive dealt with the Frank Davies Climber shop in Ambleside since 1975 and have always found it to be a good firm with whom to deal.
  • Petzl Boreo Helmet - White review by Leigh, on 12/04/2021

    Having just spent the weekend climbing in this helmet, I would recommend it. For price and protection its spot on, also very comfy, even with a buff underneath. Im happy with my purchase and very pleased with the communication and advice from The Climber Shop who have been extremely helpful. Thank you
