Any climbing helmet will work! you could go for the superlight weight helment Petzl sirocco or for a all round helmet like the BD half dome. I reccomend trying the helmets on before you buy! the sizing can vary between makes

Short and simple, it's more waterproof, windproof, and breathable, but especially more durable. GORE say that they only use outer fabrics of at least 40-denier (a rating used to measure the mass density of a textile's fibers) to make Pro garments. This makes the jackets tougher and more resistant to abrasion so as to withstand rugged and harsh environments, but also heavier.... (more)

From Dominik Pončo Hladký via Facebook: "Imagine you have Petzl quark, in much cheaper version. Quark have s little lighter head (I consider like a con) a a little better shapes the bottom spike (pro). They are over all lighter(pro) so if you want heavier head you can add weights and you will end up with same like the Bandit. The blade on Bandit is a little thicker (con?) but I don't see that much difference in penetration of ice or what ever. If you are looking for a multi functional tool, mix, ice, approach you just found one pretty cheaply.'

Hi Tony. For Scottish winter climbing, something like the Petzl Quark or Black Diamond Viper work well. Anything more technical usually won't come with a hammer or azde, and you'll want theses for cutting steps and smashing pro into frozen cracks. Closer to home, the DMM Apex is a great allrounder, or the slightly less technical DMM Fly Mountain is a great entry to mid level axe.
