I now have a Petzl Sirocco helmet (size 2) to save me from being knocked out and left for dead in the snow when checking on my dogs during storms and hurricanes. Petzl's Sirocco ultra-lightweight helmet is for climbers and mountaineers, so I am not exactly the targeted user, which just goes to show climbing hardware has many applications. I use quite a lot of kit from Lyon Equipment including carabiners, ropes, ice screws, headlamps and crevasse rescue gear all of which enables me and my dogs to perform safely to the best of our ability.

Before my new Sirocco helmet I used to wear an old German helmet weighing one kilo to protect my noggin from airborne rocks, stones and ice. At the time it was that or a biscuit tin.
