Northwall vs MSA Gallet helmets

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I know this topic has been discussed a bit in the past, but with the posts being a few years old, I was wondering if more people have had a chance to try the Northwall helmet and what their thoughts were on comfort and sizing when compared to the Gallet. Going to be dropping a fair amount of change for a helmet in the near future and want to try and make the most informed decision. For reference my head sizing is 56 cm so I'm right on the edge of the charts between the two sizes, so if anyone also has any experience with sizing up/ down that would be much appreciated as well 🤣

I've heard a few good reviews about the Northwall, but one thing to consider is if you have any plans to work south of the border, the USFS require you to have a helmet that is approved by the DOI, and I couldn't find Northwall on the list here:



My head is around 56cm as well and I wear a large Gallet LH250 and it fits great. I have the grey inner visor, it's handy if you want to remove the external visor and cover to reduce weight/size to get in and out of the bubble easier/more comfortable.

I bought from Merit down in the USA, they've been pretty helpful over the years when I've needed stuff.

Good luck with your purchase.
