The Edelrid Ultralight is a great helmet, I've been using them since the 90s and love them to bits. Good stable cradle.
Why does every good helmet get cancelled?
The ultralight is the best, it's a real shame if it's been cancelled. It's the only helmet that fits my huge head well. And despite its name it's quite robust, more so than the modern foamy nonsense.
So my question is, what's the best helmet that stays put with a heavy scurion bolted to it

I've used an Ultralight, and found it very comfortable, but I've always liked the way the Petzl Ecrin can be so easily adjusted. This is particularly handy if you are putting on/ taking off a neoprene hood during your trip, as you can readjust in seconds. I've been collecting them ever since Petzl announced that they would be discontinued. I had 4 until last week, when I picked up a bundle of caving gear off Facebook marketplace for £10 that included two more. I gave one to a mate and will probably hang onto the other one, but I'd certainly recommend anyone after a caving helmet to keep their eyes open for a 2nd hand Ecrin. As others have said, it does depend on the shape of your head, so see what you can borrow and try out before parting with a pile of cash.
