Petzl has engineered this helmet for comfort as well as safety, and they have always been at the top of the industry in terms of intelligent design. Because it does not have side vents, the VERTEX BEST can get warm doing some types of work. If your work allows you to have a ventilated helmet, we'd recommend the VERTEX VENT. But if you want this level of safety, you won't be able to find a more comfortable helmet than the BEST in this class.
