As for the foam padding. Every roc came with the thin padding for big heads and the thick padding for small heads. So for every small headed person there is a large headed person each of which has foam they can't use. POST AND SWAP. Me? My head is just right. I can use the thin padding adjusted in a bit and the thick padding adjusted all the way out. I was looking at a vertec but had reservations....now that there is a second gen I'll get one for my Sten caving, Use my roc for retro ceiling burner trips and keep my old elios for a loaner...for those real retro trips with reed torches I'll go bare headed and bare ......

The end of an era, the classic tank is gone. But then with the lower ride and the fact that we shrink with age I guess we'll all walk sooner in passages that we had to stoop.........

:big grin: The Ecrin Roc isn't my favorite helmet! The old Ecrin is my helmet of choice! I thought Petzl screwed up when they discontinued that model. Those old Ecrins were a way better helmet imo!
