The Vega Altura Helmet is a DOT/ECE rated full face helmet with good styling. The finish was good and it looks like they used quality materials for the lining. The venting is exceptional and the face shield was easy to use.

The Altura seemed good when I received it but when I got it on my head, it seemed a little small. What got me is that it also pinched my ears uncomfortably. (I lost the genetic ear lottery - thanks Dad.) I had to try to get my finger up in the helmet to flatten my ears out - not the easiest thing to do. That was the killer and I returned it to Amazon. I have to post that with my current helmet, also a XX, my ears are not pinched or folded at all. The problem fitting my ears would be my only complaint. This might work great for you and that is why I gave it four stars.

The Good:

- Quiet
- Comfortable
- Excellent airflow

Neutral:

- This helmet is an average weight compared to my other full face helmets (maybe just a bit lighter).

The Bad:

- This helmet is shorter than my other helmets. Although this makes it more comfortable, a lot of air gets in from under the helmet (even when the vents are closed). However, it's still pretty quiet. I think this helmet may not be ideal for winter riding because of this.
- Again, due to the shortness, I feel a little safe because my neck feels very exposed.

I am a female scooterist, and this is a pretty good helmet. I do have to take my glasses off, then put my helmet on, then close the face guard, but it's well worth it. I recommend keeping your mouth closed before putting the helmet on, or you might bite your cheek when once it's on and you try to close your mouth. This might seem inconvenient, but a tight fit means that my face is protected, and I like that.

Helmet seems just a tad small for a large, but loosened up upon wearing a few times. Order a size larger than what you need. Great quality for 50 bucks and would order again.

This helmet is a great buy. I love the red color for its increased visibility; I feel like I am really seen by other motorists and feel safer for it. The vents keep the face shield and my sunglasses fog free, plus, I get good airflow. The padding is comfortable. There's nothing not to like. Delivery was prompt and the price was less than I expected pay given all the helmet's features.

I only rate this helmet to the positive side since it fits my head. I've got a big ol nugget, touching almost an 8. BUT, this is one noisy lid...guilty part? Faceshield. It squeals, whistles and everything else you can imagine. I even wear earplugs and it annoys the living daylights out of me. I have even gone as far as to try and seal the faceshield with silicone and tape. Tape works, but look like a goober. Will not buy another one unless I absolutely have to.

The first time this helmet was delivered, the plastic around the bottom of the helmet was cracked and starting to pull off the helmet. Amazon exchanged it for me, but the second helmet had the exact same problem. It seems sort of a trivial issue, because that piece of plastic isn't there to offer protection. But shouldn't a brand new helmet come intact? Especially if you try twice? Amazon , was very helpful in getting the helmet returned, but customer service at Vega could have cared less about my issue. Certainly wont be buying Vega again.

Size: XXXXX-LargeColor: Black Verified Purchase
I order this helmet to fit my big melon because all of the modern helmets seem to have changed their base design since my last KBC helmet purchase back in the late 90's. All new helmets won't fit over my head enough to get my head inside My KBC was only a 1XL and fit perfectly, but it's old and I can get shields for it anymore. So I needed a new one. Not one store in all of Seattle metro area had a helmet that I could even get on. Internet research found a couple of companies that made BIG sizes. I tried the Magnums, and they were too small, SO I tried this Vega Altura in 5XL, the biggest they make.

I was able to get it on, and it was actually probably one size larger than I needed. A 4XL probably would have been just right. However, for whatever reason, they make the chin strap with a snap built into the strap near the end, I guess to cut down on flapping maybe? The problem is the D-rings aren't "D" shaped, they and square "[ ]" shaped ones that made getting that stupid snap through them without slipping back out. I absolutely hated that aspect of this helmet. It literally took me almost 5 minutes of messing with it witch cold hands to get it strapped on. With my Old helmet, less than 10 seconds.

The finish seemed fine (gloss black). The venting was odd however, as it seemed to blow air into my right eye. The chin section of the shell had a rubber lining / insert on the inside that did not fit well which I could not correct. This caused the chin section to rest on my chin which is not what you want. The internal padding had no real padding for the very top of my head which put my head against the hard Styrofoam inner shell. It did not hurt, but it needs padding there to protect from any impact.

Essentially, it's a usable helmet, but I found the build quality and design to be below what I want, and that chin strap snap made it unusable for me. My search goes on.
