Black Diamond Vapor vs. Petzl Sirocco

I’m looking for a new climbing helmet. Do people prefer the Black Diamond Vapor or the Petzl Sirocco?

I'm just happy Petzl changed the Sirocco from being that solid orange style. That was a tough look...

Can you try them on? I found the vapor fit my head better. The webbing for the petzl just felt really weird and I couldn't get over it, even though initially it was the helmet I actually wanted.

@Carla Moore Thanks for the suggestion. I've actually had that issue with other helmets before but they weren't climbing helmets. I've been thinking I'm going to order them both and see which one fits better. Thanks!

I like the Petzl more, but I have only borrowed the Vapor so I don't feel like thats a fair suggestion. I don't think you could go wrong with either company, both are really nice.
