Overall, the quality of this helmet seems very good. I’m upgrading from a cheaper model of an HJC helmet. This one is about twice as expensive as that one and it feels it.

Good helmet for the price, but you may want to try helmets on in person to ensure the right fit.

LIke everyone else said, it is big. Feels like it has a much larger profile than other half-shell/open-face helmets. But with the visor down it looks a whole lot better. Almost pretty cool (just how cool depends on how cool YOU are). But the visor woks well and provides great vision, while blocking the wind hitting you directly in the eyes. The lower back of the helmet provides more protection than other brain buckets, though it only fits down as far as the top of the ears. If you’re looking for ear coverage, get a 3/4 helmet.

Excellent helmet for my big head!!!!!!

I can’t tell you how many helmets I’ve tried and they ALL fit tight. I had to gamble and order this one from Amazon and I have one word…WOW!!!!!

Med too big for 71/4" head size

I have a 71/4 ” hat size and I should have ordered the small. It seems the side of the helmet should be shorter as it covers the top of my ears in an uncomfortable manner. I like the matte black finish. The drop down shade is slightly tinted however the optics of the plastic is marginal and objects can look distorted. The ear flaps seem to channel the wind into your ear however a smaller size helmet may decrease this.

Comfortable and light

This helmet is very light and comfortable. I find that if the helmet is too heavy it hurts my neck, and this one doesn’t cause that to happen. The drop down face shield is convenient and easy to use. I recommend this to anyone who wants a lighter helmet.

Like all half helmets this one does make you look like a mushroom riding down the street. That being said it is much better than most of the other half helmets I tried while still maintaining the DOT approval. When the windscreen is down it looks best from what my girlfriend tells me.

Nice

This is my hot weather helmet. It fits nice, the drop shade works real nice. It does seem a bit tight relative to the sizing chart and the other large HJC full face helmet I have but it is a nice helmet with upgrade feature for the money. I would recommend it for anybody looking for a half helmet with the drop shade.
Five Types Of Motorcycle Headgear

Motorcycle helmets are usually of five types and are secured to the rider's head employing a chin strap. The objective of using them and their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap is just not secured.

Full Face Helmet: The complete face helmet covers the complete head approximately the skull base and is regarded as the protective of all the helmets. It has a swiveling cutout band, termed as a visor, manufactured from transparent plastic over the front in the eyes and nose. Some helmets include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and not enough wind. Full-face helmets which are commonly used for motocross or off-road rides do not sometimes use a face shield however the visor and chin portions are extended. A helmet with less coverage is less safe.

Off-Road/Motocross Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The lack of a face shield permits the rider to use goggles and allow more airflow that's needed is during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps sunshine's glare from the rider's eyes during jumps.

Though off-road helmets was lacking a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets use a chin bar to guard the eye from impact during crashes. By wearing such helmets together with goggles, the same amount of protection as from full face helmets can be achieved.

Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Commonly known as with the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid between the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is over a pivot and is moved upwards to resemble a face helmet. Anybody wearing the helmet may thus have the ability to eat and drink without having to take away the chinstrap. They're well-liked by motor officers that are moving around.

Modular helmets are generally kept closed while riding along with the chin bar is kept up only when not riding the motorcycle. In the event the helmet is kept in the open position while riding, the chance of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of a collision. However, those modular helmets which are dual certified as full face and open face helmets give a great degree of protection even though used in the open mode.

Open Face Helmet: Outdoors face helmets cover the rear in the head, the ears along with the cheeks along with have the chin bar which a full face helmet possesses. Some of them have provisions for visors to be snapped on. The protection to the face is minimal when using these helmets.

Supplementing facial protection by using goggles or snapping over a face shield protects the eye from flying debris, strong wind and insects.

Half Helmet: Famous throughout the 1960s and also called the pudding basin helmet in britain, one half helmet or &lsquoshorty' was loved by road racers. The style is nearly similar to a face helmet without worrying about lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet doesn't offer a great deal of protection along with the rider has to wear goggles to guard your eye area. As a result of decreased safety which they offer, several Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned using this half helmet.

Headwear Not Included Inside The Arena Of Helmets

Informal headwear like beanies and brain buckets cannot be included to mean motorcycle helmets. These kind of headwear aren't certified for safety and are lighter and smaller than conventional helmets. They do not have safety measures like the energy absorbing crash foam. Inside their best, such novelty helmets may prevent the scalp from sunburn or the scalp against abrasion. However, they can not steer clear of the skull through the impact of a crash.
