If you are in the market for a new lid this looks a damn good deal.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Edelrid-Ultralight-Climbing-Caving-Helmet-Size-54-60-cm-21-3-23-6-435g-/262225551529?hash=item3d0ddc60a9:g:VRgAAOSw5dNWi9Uv

I use one and rate them really highly.

If you could get them without the holes, they'd be similar to an Ecrin.
The cradle looks well made and comfortable looking.
A good deal for the lolly.

I got one today, despatched Thursday arrived Tuesday - awesome delivery speed for Hermes
??
Only downside I can see is it's dark grey rather than red but for £25 including delivery I'm not crying.

Got one myself. Nice helmet for the money. Not sure why you'd think it was going to be red? It's black in the pictures, and description.

I wasn't expecting it to be red, it was just a remark in jest at the value some put on having a red bonce protector.

I've got one of these, there's only two left now - they're also on sale for a good cause (St. Lukes Hospice) so if anyone is thinking of a new lid, now's the time! Next search on ebay, rubber grommets to blank off the holes....

Does the seller give any idea where they got them all? I only ask because I bought mine a year or so back from a seller who was also selling a batch of them which he said had been used once only, as part of a film. But he didn't say what it was. IP: 146.90.20.209

As far as I can tell, they were brand new - mine still had the info leaflet attached to the cradle and the box looked unopened. They'll have been donated to St.Lukes but no indication as to who that was, or why.
