Tessco or any rigging supply house that carries the Petzl Vertex helmet. They have an ANSI Z89.1-2003 rating.

These are widely regarded as the best helmets by a wide variety of people who climb for a living (SAR, high-angle rescue, forestry).

They are brimless which reduces hyperflexion of the neck. They are also relatively lightweight compared to others which reduces fatigue.

As I pointed out a long, long time ago...There's only one reason to wear your cap backwards, and its not to look cool.

Indeed. Reversing your hard hat is against OSHA ruling, because it is against mfg specifications on how it is to be worn, UNLESS the cap has been made to be worn backwards, which many are. They just have to be certified to be worn backwards.
