Equipment Rent – Helmet
The use of a climbing helmet is the ultimate rule while eather hiking the Slovenian mountains or climbing in the area. The Slovenian mountains are structured from limestone which is a very crumbly rock.
Why use a climbing helmet?
-it will protect you from the loose rocks and falling ice
-the helmet can protect your head in case you hit the wall while climbing
-it can prevent minor injuries in case of the fall
When to use a climbing helmet?
-we recommend wearing a climbing helmet when you go hiking the mountains higher 2000 m. Why? Because the timberline ends on that level and there are a lot more possibilities of loose rock.
-Use it while any type of outdoor climbing a rock or ice the use is mandatory
– Use of helmet is also recommendable when you attend any kind of via Ferrata
-while attending the ascent to the popular mountains as Triglav. Since some of the mountains can be crowded in especially in the summer season there are a lot more possibilities of falling rocks.
What do you need to be careful when choosing the climbing helmet?
-to have a helmet big enough. Most of the helmets are adjustable as also the ones we rent.
-make sure the helmet has good ventilation it will make your move more careless
-it is recommendable to have as a light helmet as possible since you will have to carry it in your backpack. (it should not have more than 340g)
How to use and adjust the climbing helmet?
-make sure that it is not to tight and not to loose
-don’t take the helmet off your head while climbing
