Guidelines:
Use the product name for the thread title.
The review has to be at least two paragraph long, be interesting and informative to read, and related to the scene, don't do a review on Wallmart or how you hate Verizon. No drive by reviews, no lazy three line long reviews. Include details like price, shipping, availability, anything that a person looking to buy this product would find useful.
Include at least one good picture of the product taken by you that clearly shows the product being reviewed.
Pro and Con breakdown at the end.
You cannot do a review if you sell or are involved financially with the product being reviewed, but you can answer questions.
Absolutely no threadjacking, pornography or any sort of douchbagery, questions and answers must be on point.
Check for an existing product review before starting a new one. Additional reviews for the same product from other members should be added to the existing one and follow the same guideline as above.
Reviews that do not meet the above requirements will get deleted. We want the section to be helpful for users researching products.

 Post subject: Just ordered a couple Vega full face helmets

I just ordered a couple full face helmets for me and my girl

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/1/ ... eouts.aspx

and

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/1/ ... elmet.aspx

better images of hers here... http://www.uscoolsports.com/VEGA_ATTITU ... g-4267.htm


she has a 3/4 HJC and I have a Fulmar halfy, but I wanted to get something that was a little better for colder days or long rides. Since apparently it can be 80* one day and hail the next day around here.

They should be here monday or tuesday, hopefully its nice and we can try them out. I'll post up a review when we do.

Got out and rode several times with new helmets. I love it! its comfortable, doesnt feel heavy, great air circulation, minimum wind noise, the drop down sun visor works great. Very happy with purchase. Chose to wear that helmet over my half helmet on a hot 80* day and wasnt uncomfortable or sweating at all.

only down fall I think is the angle of the chin strap. Seems to go against my neck/chin at an angle and not flat.

I've had the exact same helmet for a couple of years now. Just be gentle with the visor. I have had the nut washer on one side that is bonded into helmet disappear inside the helmet shell.

I'll be home tomorrow and take some pics of them.



Thanks for the heads up. Was it the nut from the clear visor or the pop down sunshade?

Nut for the clear visor on inside of shell (supposed to be bonded into shell) apparently came out so there was nothing for the bottom screw to fasten into it. I epoxied that little black piece that they hold down, that the outer visor clips into today to resolve the problem. So far so good.

Other nice feature is the inner pads come out and are washable.
