Since it's a helmet thread... I just saw this on another forum and thought it was good. Strike it if it breaks protocol.

Damn, I love this…we don't do this sort of PSA in the States anymore, and when we did, not quite as good.

Time for Bazooka!

Thanks all. I'm so glad I read these posts before my new helmet arrived today.

Its a TCMT 3/4 open face I bought from Walmart for $80. It's a size M and my head size is within the range. But when I first tried it on I thought Yikes, this is too small. But I remembered you all said it takes time for the padding to settle. I also had to develop a technique. Take off glasses, and pull on the sides pretty hard when putting it on. That makes it much easier to get over my ears and once on, it feels very comfortable. Not sure how it will feel over time. I have to be careful of the hearing aids. The helmet feels well made and the insides come out for cleaning. I really like the visor which is mounted inside the front. It has outside snaps for a second visor. The inside visor is tinted. Feels like it will work even though tight at first. Also my other helmet is 1/2 helmet so I wasn't used to the ears to maneuver over.

Wow, an Italian attack helicopter! That is really bad ass. Thanks. I took my AW 129 out for a test flight with my new Helmet and it felt great. I like it way more than my half helmet. My head feels cradled in this new one. It is solid on my head like an integral part, rather than the cap on top of my head that my other helmet was. Yea!

That's me in my AW 129 below!

I think you were referring to one of these:


Good for tanks, APVs, and the occasional obnoxious Escalade driver.

...
Reminds me of my Nolan N21 Vintage Durango, except the Nolan has vents disguised as the visor snaps.

This is about as little helmet as I'm willing to ride with -- tried a half-helmet once, but I couldn't tolerate the noise level and thought it felt inadequate. (But then, at the time I'd been riding with 3/4 and full/modular helmets for years so that was probably inevitable.)

The types of helmet
The Jet or open helmet on the other hand does not have the chin guard part, and on the label it is marked as "J". Even less enveloping is the demi jet helmet, which offers less protection on the neck and cheeks than the open helmet.
Jet and demi-jet helmets are those particular examples of helmets made specifically to be used in the city. When you get behind the wheel of your two-wheeled vehicle, in fact, you must first know what you use it for. And when you know that the routes you will take will remain within the walls of the city where you live, the choice of a jet or demi-jet helmet is the right one. Or is it the best one anyway.
These are helmets that make handling and lightness some of their strengths. Therefore, the choice for a “city” helmet is right that it falls on them, for many reasons.
We are talk about jet helmets... which so far have been seen as the perfect middle ground between the full-face helmet and the demi jet helmet.
The jet helmet has the characteristic of having a lateral half chin guard that protects the cheeks. In addition, the visor is wider and also covers the nose, mouth and chin but not entirely, only from insects and small flying objects and not from collisions with the ground.
In fact, jet helmets compared to demi-jet ones, guarantee greater protection in the lower part of the skull. In particular, the nape and cheeks are more protected when wearing a jet helmet.
Now let's talk about demi-jet helmets, for which we can make a speech starting directly from their differences compared to jet helmets. Compared to the latter, as we have just seen, demi-jet helmets offer a lower degree of protection in particular at the neck, face and cheeks. All to the advantage of the weight, which is lower even if not by much, since the rest of the skull is abundantly protected by this type of helmet.
In addition, the demi-jet helmet is more rounded than the jet one, and consequently the thickness to protect the skull will also be greater. A fact that reassures and not a little, especially in the event of collisions or, worse, falls but only if you have the "good fortune" to fall straight on your head.
