I have been looking for a wind noise reduction solution for my Scorpion EXO 400 full face helmet, and decided to try this sleeve out.

Pros:
- The sleeve is well constructed. The adhesive and elasticity hold well over the helmet.
- When installed there was a marked improvement in cold weather protection for the head.

Cons:
- It took about 1.5 weeks from order to delivery.
- There were no instructions that came with the package.
- If there are other mounts (e.g. bluetooth) that you have on the outside of the helmet, the sleeve and its adhesive will need to go over it. It holds, sure, but you lose some wind protection.
- Fogging increases with this installed, requiring opening the visor.

There is no mystery here. Says what it does and does what it says.
It was clear to me that it would make my helmet a warmer wear. It does but it's an acceptable downside.
It is supposed to reduce wind and noise and it does so noticeably well which is the first reason I had considered buying it.
It appears to be made for a lasting life. Without abuse, this thing could work for many years. If the stitching fails, it would be worth it to repair it or just buy another, which I wouldn't hesitate to do again.
It also reduces the drag from wind on my helmet which reduces neck strain and over time/distance/speed riding, this little item really pays off the longer you enjoy using it.
And it comes off easy. With a simple amount of patient work clutching your helmet with your knees you can put it back on in about 30 seconds and spend maybe another minute or two getting it just right.
The only other mention I want to add about the actual space for your head concern I read somewhere, is that the yoke is neoprene which only stretches so much before you're probably going to be flat out uncomfortable going on and off more than once a day. If you are trying to use headphones or some kind of beanie headwear stuff before you add the helmet to your head, with this jammer on your helmet you better figure out slow and easy does it or you'll fight with it. But that's only a situation, not a failure of the device. Unless they can make a Velcro-type adjustable collar closure, you , me, and everyone else is stuck forcing our heads through what can feel a bit like cramming your head into a pickle jar with no lube. You get the idea.

I saw the Windjammer in an online motorcycle magazine review. They said it was worth the money. I agree 100%. I wish I could rate it 4.5 stars, but it's worthy of 5 stars since that's the option. I waited until I have used it for several months before rating so I could give an honest review.

I do not use a windshield, so I catch all of the wind with the face of my helmet. By using my hand to block wind entry to the bottom of my helmet, I found that most of the wind noise was from wind intrusion through the bottom of my helmet. The Windjammer does a VERY good job of mitigating this situation. I know the Windjammer is doing its job because I can now hear the wind whistling through the vents and on the outside of my helmet. I didn't even know that noise was there, so I know the Windjammer is helping. I still wear ear plugs because the high-frequency wind whistling around the outside of the helmet. With the Windjammer, I can hear my exhaust even on the highway; previously I couldn't.

The Windjammer wasn't particularly EASY to get stretched around the bottom of my helmet, but it wasn't impossible. It was handy to have my son hold the helmet steady for me as I stretched the Windjammer around the bottom of the helmet.

Getting my head pushed through the Windjammer/helmet opening is weird at first. I'm used to it and don't think twice about it, now. Also, I don't have particularly big ears, but the Windjammer does grab my ears as I pull the helmet over my head. It's not horrible, but it is weird.

When the humidity is high or if the ambient temperature is particularly cold, my helmet visor fogs quickly every time I stop with the Windjammer. It happens quickly, so I simply crack my visor and the problem mostly goes away. I keep the visor cracked as long as I'm in town and then latch it shut as soon as I hit the highway.

I've read others' opinions that they will remove the Windjammer when the temperature gets too high. I think I will leave mine on. It does seem to make the helmet somewhat warmer, but I think it's negligible on the highway (I do use my other helmet when I'm riding in-town, though).

FYI, the Windjammer is shipped from England. Mine arrived withing a couple weeks, but don't be surprised if it takes much longer.

Again, I'm very happy with my Windjammer and I would certainly purchase it again. It DOES NOT get rid of all motorcycle-riding noise, but it does help A LOT with wind/helmet noise.

Pros:
- Fits easily
- Works even with a bluetooth headset mounted on the helmet
- Noticeably reduces wind noise

Cons:
- Price after shipping from England
- No distributors in the US
- Visor or glasses fogging is more likely
- Covers some of the helmet chin bar vents.

It's quieter on my HJC CL-16 than either just the helmet or the helmet with the HJC chin skirt. An improperly adjusted windscreen can still leave ears ringing after a ride though due to pressure fluctuations inside the helmet caused by buffeting. It's not eliminated, but it's not as bad as without the Windjammer.

Price was a bit high after shipping was included.

It fits easily and works even with my SENA SMH-5 headset. I didn't need to modify the Windjammer, but I did leave it stretched underneath the headset controller 9 the wires fit through one of the holes in the rear.

It's more difficult to keep my sunglasses from fogging with the Windjammer on, particularly at stops. This is easily addressed by popping the visor open to vent position when stopped or riding at slow speeds. I'm glad that my helmet has a pinlock visor or else I'd be really working on what do do about fogging. It can get a bit worrisome in the rain though when it's not practical to open the visor.

I wish they had perforated the skirt around the outside of the helmet so it didn't cover the side exhaust vents. This would probably have helped with fogging.

I bought this because I get a lot of wind noise when riding my scooter. I've read that if you have a fairing that wind noise is especially hard to control, and that's the case for me. I have ear plugs and I wear a full face helmet, so that's under control, but still I get a lot of wind bouncing around the inside of my helmet. Back to the Windjammer. It does control the wind noise, without a doubt. It's down 70% to 80%, so that's a real plus. The thing I didn't count on was how difficult it was with the Windjammer to put my helmet on, and then to take it off, as well. It is almost a joke. I struggle like the devil pushing my helmet on, squishing my ears. Then when I take it off, it squeezes my head so hard that it can pop my ear plugs out. It's almost laughable, if not for the fact that it can hurt. I will continue to use the Windjammer because it protects my ears from the wind noi. My guess is that it will loosen up and get easier to put my helmet on and off. Wish me luck.

I heard so many good things about this and in the end was disappointed. It fits quite tight and ends up making my once comfortable helmet unbearable. I invested in a set of earplugs and that has been MUCH better for reducing wind noise.

Had hoped this might help with helmet wind noise buffeting but have not noted any change. Product was easy to install, but made putting the Shoei 1000 helmet VERY difficult to get on and off. Not worth the trouble to me.

The windjammer cuts down the noise at both ends, both the low 'booming' and the high 'whistle'. It is, however, a *very* tight fit at first, but does relax a little.

I've always been very sensitive to helmet wind noise. I'm probably a little OCD. With the exception of Shuberth, which I can't afford, no helmet manufacturers seem to have really addressed the roar caused by air rushing past the bottom part of a helmet around the neck area. It's worse if the windscreen on your bike directs the air flow at that area, which mine does. On my first ride with the Windjammer attached it was immediately evident that my HJC IS-16 was much quieter. What a relief! The Windjammer attaches to the helmet very securely without using a permanent type of adhesive which is great. It uses some type of sticky substance that does not leave any residue when removed from the helmet. I have a guitar tuner that uses something similar to attach the tuner directly to the top of the guitar and it never leaves a trace. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who suffers from excess helmet wind noise.

I don't doubt that this works for some, but it doesn't work for me. There is still a significant gap between my neck and the windjammer, and in most areas it does not cover more than the internal padding did already. In my case the helmet, windscreen, and my height conspire to create turbulence around my helmet, but I imagine this is the case for most of your customers. I don't doubt that the product could have helped more if it had fit flush with my neck.
Design a multi-size product or quit making these claims.

Save your money and buy a better helmet with a noise rating.

Also, I waited several weeks for this to arrive.
