    Nice basic helmet

    I bought this helmet for warmer weather when I don't want to suffocate in my full face. It has basic protection and obviously won't do a lot to protect you in a bad accident, but it covers the necessities. Since it is DOT rated, it still makes you look kinda mushroom-y, but not terribly bad. Great helmet for the price-point.

    straps in wrong position

    The helmet fit and finish was great except for the straps coming together over my ears, felt very annoying and rubbed on my ears constantly. Kept the lid for my grandson to wear, fits his profile just fine.

    Excellent value

    Can't beat the fit and finish of this helmet. It has features of helmets twice the price. Well worth the price.

    Great for what I need it for. Needed something small and easy for a scooter just to get around the community. Great price and great service.

    Big!

    I thought this was a low ride helmet but it wasn't. It looked like a chrome turtle on top of my head. I sent it back. The chrome had some delamination out of the box so I'm sure after time the chrome look would've cracked or chipped. Motorcycle Superstore took it back and I bought a better fitting and better looking helmet.

    dumb looking

    King of the Mario Brothers League. Mushroom does not begin to describe this thing. It will last forever however as long as it's not worn, at least in public.

    Mushroom

    I recently ordered, then quickly returned a Skid Lid "Original Solid Helmet" in flat black. While it may be a good fit/look for other riders, it made me look like one of the Mushroom Men from the old Nintendo DS game. Great price. Great service from Motorcycle Superstore. Not so great a look.

    Hope I Don't Need It

    The protection is as minimal as the helmet. I do like the idea of not having a sweaty head but I'm afraid that the helmet will be close to worthless as far as protection goes. But it does allow me to comply with the law and I am NOT going to wear a full face helmet no matter what so I have this and a 3/4 Bell with a bubble visor.

    original Skid Lid helmet

    Really good fit and finish on a steal of a cruiser helmet. I have a couple of other half-helmets but this one will be my rider this year.

    Erm. Would not buy again

    Helmet straps are uneven, and smash ears. The "V" in the strap does not line up. It does give you a mushroom head, but I'm not all that concerned with looks. Does run a little small, wish I would have ordered one size up. But for the price it was an okay buy. Motorcycle Superstore will still retain my business.

    Skid Lid

    I have several helmets that I wear. A Bell, an HJC and an Arai. Now a skid lid. The skid lid is as comfortable as any of the others and looks great with a DOT compliance as well. Would I recommend it? Absolutely.
