Updated with Mips® protection and more side-and-back coverage, the Black Diamond Capitan Mips climbing helmet is engineered to handle its namesake big wall while keeping its comfortable cradle fit.


  • Updated with Mips (Multidirectional Impact Protection System) technology
  • Mips is designed to protect against the rotational motion (or kinematics) transmitted to the brain from angled impacts to the head
  • 2-piece ABS shell construction creates ultra-durability and allows for an optimized fit
  • Fusion of EPP foam and EPS foam puck meets the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA) proposed increased requirements for side and back protection
  • Low-profile suspension system and adjustable chin strap easily dial in the fit
  • Vents provide provide ample breathability when temps heat up
  • Integrated headlamp clips with a back elastic keeper secure your light through late-night pushes (headlamp not included)
  • Removable and reversible interior hook-and-loop padding


To find your size, position a tape measure just above your ears and about 1 in. above your eyebrows. Keep the tape level to measure the circumference around the largest part of your head and then find the corresponding size in the Technical specs info.
