Anyone familiar with the Crag Hat helmet?

Postby Laddy » Mar 10, 2007 7:59 pm

It's been a few years, but I'm getting back into caving and need to buy all new gear. That being said, I have a tight budget at the moment, and so I'm looking at inexpensive options. While researching gear, I ran across a helmet called the Crag Hat. Most places are selling it for about $50, but I found it at one store for $30. Can anyone tell me anything about this helmet? It's supposedly CE certified and UIAA approved, but I'm not even sure who the manufacturer is. I've seen the same picture used on different websites with different manufacturers. For instance:

Manufactured by Kong: http://www.amazon.com/KONG-Crag-Rock-Cl ... B000GBNU64

Manufactured by ABC: http://store.everestgear.com/450050.html

Manufactured by Liberty Mountain: http://www.libertymtn.com/catalog.php?t ... t&id=17639

I've also seen a slightly different helmet advertised as the Crag Hat: http://www.outdoorbasics.com/store/prod ... =70&page=1

Is this just the name of a particular style of helmet and different manufacturers make one? What gives?

Thanks!
