I read a LOT of the reviews before purchasing this helmet for my boyfriend. His regular riding helmet is full faced and he is getting tired of the closed-in feeling. I liked it for the drop down sun visor. Others advised to size up because they run small. I did that and had to return my first one. He is a Medium. The medium fit him fine. He does not seem to be bothered by the noise others have complained of. Perhaps he has a greater loss of hearing?? The sun visor not sitting right over the eyes was another complaint, and again, his sits right where it should. Needless to mention, he is ecstatic with it and it is now his "regular" riding helmet! I wish it came in a women's for the same price! It is too soon to rate the durability, so I gave it an average and we'll see. The return was a snap, as usual for Motorcycle Super Store. Can't beat it for the price!
You are looking for a quality child's helmet that is also lightweight and fits well. I could not find anything in a store and was relieved to find this one online. Once we got it home we found it was everything we needed. The one thing our child would have liked was a clear face shield. Perhaps this is an add on somewhere but I did not see it at the time of ordering. We are very happy with this product and recommend it.
It is a bit heavy for this style of helmet but overall functions okay. It has a bit of a cheap plastic feel but is about what I was expecting for the price range. The only real problem it that the wind noise is really loud on the freeway. I normally ride with headphones in and I could not hear anything over the noise. I do like the built in sun shade and the massive amount of air that comes through weather the vents are open or not makes it very cool on hot days.
