This Fox helmet is - foxy! I think it is terrific. The Amazon photos and listings are confused, though, showing a shiny, brown helmet in one place and a sand-colored, fabric-covered helmet in another. The real item, "FOX Transition Hard Shell Helmet, Military, Medium" is fabric-covered. It bears the name FOX on the right side. On the left is the lettering "BORN TO" meaning "born to win" with an ace of spaces playing card stuck in the headband covering the "WIN." US soldiers sometimes do place a card under the headband, signifying days or weeks before they leave a combat theater. In the Fox helmet, the ace of spaces playing card (one day or one week left before departure) is actually a vinyl piece sewn onto the fabric. The Fox helmet also has a headband similar to the real GI version, traditionally worn for identification. A soldier's name is sometimes embroidered on the front of the real headband and two small reflectorized patches are sewn the rear for night recognition from behind. These "cats eyes," as they are called, are missing from the Fox bike helmet headband. Instead, "FOX COMPANY" is printed on the headband in back.

In appearance, this cleverly styled bike helmet does give the appearance of a current G.I. Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH), although it differs in appearance when placed alongside a genuine Army issue ACH. The most obvious difference is that this bike helmet has cut-outs over the ears. Military helmets are not like that. Still, if you wear this Fox bike helmet, you will definitely give the impression of wearing a G.I. helmet. Personally, I much prefer that over the more common, gaudily painted, fore-and-aft pointy helmets with so many louvres they look like a heavily painted peach pit.

i have try many helmets, and asked the bike shop what is the difference between the 200 dollars helmet and the 30 dollars one. and the difference is NOTHING other then the air flow. then i was gonna get my hand on the cheapest helmet there is. since i MTB, skate, roller skate, and other stupid stuff that i do. fox transition seems to be the best choose. i thought i was gonna to settle with cheap walmart stuff until i saw this on amazon for almost the same price. i went with it. and i love it!! i fail couple of time, drop it couple of time, bang on it few time it still like new! prob because i have few sticker on it but im sure we all gonna do that 1st thing we got this!! and it package with sticker on it own!!only one suggestion! buy a size bigger then you normal size this way you can wear your hat under and keep the helmet fresh!!

This was purchased for a female bicycle rider. The sizing is perfect for heads that measure 58cm! The universal size, when adjusted to the largest setting, was too small(maybe by 1-2cm), but this large works quite well. The colors in person are nice, but are somewhat darker than the picture listed on amazon. The gray is a little more dark and the green is not as bright. Also, it comes with replacement padding for the inside, which I assume can be removed off the velcro and be washed. As for quality it seems very sturdy, but I hope we never find out...

Got this since I wanted something different than a regular bike helmet. Also, wanted something solid for my Gopro to stick on to. Lastly, I wanted a piece of the helmet to protect the back of my head - it goes lower to the back of my skull compared to a regular helmet.

After three months, I like it so far and I have not had any issues with it yet.

Pro: price, looks cool, can be cleaned (inserts)
Cons: nothing yet. Ill update if I find something.

Upon opening the package and donning the helmet, I found that my 60 cm noggin was slightly too small for the large helmet I had ordered. However, inside of the packaging was a pack of extra foam pads that were a bit thicker than the ones already in the helmet. I proceeded to take out the removable lining and replace them with the thicker pads and voila! the helmet fits perfectly :) Having a helmet that fits properly can really determine how effective it is and seeing how the manufacturer considered those of us who have in-between helmet size is really pleasing.

As for the safety standards, this helmet is CPSC certified, but compared to other CPSC certified helmets I have used, I found that the EPS foam lining in this helmet is a bit thicker and denser which means a bit more weight, but is negligible because of the significantly increased amount of protection thicker lining implies. Not all CPSC certifications are the same! Sometimes helmets only meet the bare minimum while others will go above and beyond to ensure your safety.

Mentioned earlier, the helmet has removable soft foam lining that not only provides a good fit and comfort, but would be able to cushion lighter falls that the EPS foam alone isn't designed to protect against. Plus it makes it easy to wash the stank out!

The shape of the helmet provides great protection for the back of the head; reaching all the way to my neck. This is a really sensitive spot of the brain and is actually where a lot of people tend to fall since slipping backwards is quite common in skating.

The chin strap doesn't feel cheap at all and feels snug and secure under my chin. It's easy to adjust the fitting and it also has a break-away mechanism built in.
