Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the best of all the options at REI I had another helmet, and it sat higher on my forehead. This one fits well and feels secure. It doesn't shift and move around and it's simple enough to adjust once you get the hang of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great helmet The adjustable strap curves up.. Perfect to leave room for a pony tail. My only gripe is that the straps are a little short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought this helmet for multi-pitch climbing. It arrived in 2 days and was easy to adjust to a great fit. I would recommend this helmet to all female climbers.

does this have a pony tail hole in the back?

Asked by: chuck the dog walker
The design of the headband system and the hard outer shell allow for a variety of hair styles, including pony tails. A video showing how this works can be found on Petzl's website:
