The ultimate low profile half shell with dual density. The TORC spec-op is the helmet for you. It fits. With that slim, close to the head profile that others have tried to produce without success. The integrated, Retractable drop-down sun visor is a great way to have sun shade when needed

Feel: it’s solid. The actual helmet material feels very sturdy and the matte finish helps it carry its aggressive, murdered out looks.
Look: Looks better than most, of not all, the other half helmets I’ve looked at. You’d be hard pressed to find another half helmet that has a better looking American flag on it. It’s very stylistic to the helmet and the aggressive look.
Features: I read complaints about comfort, the visor and the chin strap. I am an intermediate oval shaped head. I wear the helmet with a balaclava tactical mask and transitional lens riding glasses underneath. Yes, for the reviewer he said s/he couldn’t wear glasses underneath, that is just patently false! I even wear the visor as it gets dark outside and there has never been an issue of blurring nor an issue of the visor not extending far enough to offer protection. So to answer why do I wear another set of glasses under the visor? It’s simple, I never ride without eye wear that does not shield me from dust and other debris items. My transitional riding glasses have a gasket that seals to my face. Also, if I wear to ride in the darkest hours I would be able to flip up the visor and have clear eyewear.
Let me address the strap- it’s a typical D Ring strap with a functional snap button. The button isn’t meant for use other than securing the end of the strap once tightened to your chin... and it does it’s job hands down. So any complaint about the snap not working when hanging the helmet on handlebars or otherwise should not be a factor here. You pay for what you get folks and for a helmet that meets DOT, has a drop dead awesome look and a visor- it’s nothing short of 4.8 stars.
If anyone has any apprehension or second thoughts of purchasing this helmet, ask a question within the Amazon items area and I will personally take your question to task and get back to you.
Ok, so I sent back the Large helmet and got a replacement XL and have been wearing it for a little over a month now. I wanted to like this helmet, I really did. I like the design, and in theory I liked the flip down sun visor so that I could keep the clear lenses in my glasses for night time and use the built in visor during the day. The positive is that the visor is pretty dark, and since my eyes are pretty sensitive to bright light that's important.
Here's the negative - I'm not sure if it's because of the shape of the visor or what, but I get a LOT more wind blowing straight into my eyes than I do with just a regular pair of sunglasses on. I figured it would block more wind because the visor is bigger than my Oakley half jackets, but the Oakleys actually block more wind from my eyeballs than the visor does. Weird. Also, I noticed that when the wind blows the visor tends to vibrate, and it kind of blurs my vision a bit. Only thing I can figure is it is because it's attached to the helmet so it blows around a bit, but all I know is I don't get that effect with sunglasses but in strong wind I do with the visor.
It's a comfortable helmet, it's light, and with sunglasses on I like how it feels, but honestly I would prefer a $35 Skid Lid that is a bit thinner as far as the profile goes because it doesn't have the extra little bit for the visor to slide up inside. It's not a bad helmet, but I won't buy another one.

Main reason I bought this helmet was the flip down visor so I could wear glasses However I find the visor is worthless. It does not come down far enough and its made of very dark cheap plastic that distorts the view, sort of like looking through the end of a coke bottle. Definitely not optical lens.. Might be good for welding or viewing the eclipse. In my opinion this visor would be dangerous to ride with and would be a liability to the manufacture. I will keep the helmet, and back to wearing goggles with glasses underneath.
I have other helmet with high quality visor, too bad this is such a nice helmet with such a bad visor.
