A rear view mirror is a MUST for anyone riding with traffic.

HELMET mirrors are NOT for everyone as they do require some getting used to. It took me at least 2-3 rides before I got used to it. I've been using one since 2003 and do not feel safe without one.

Helmet mirrors do a better job as you can still have a blind spot with the bicycle mounted mirrors - I have my helmet mirror set so I can see my shoulder and the side of my head. This gives me a clear view of traffic behind and to my right. By turning my head 30 degrees to my right, I completely "sweep" to all lanes on my left side.

I've tried this and the Blackburn helmet mirror. This one is definitely better.

MINUS
- Does not remove (the Blackburn pops off the base so you can remove it offroading, for example. Don't lose it!)

PLUS
- Shorter arm is stiffer than Blackburn (it's an I-Beam section)
- Adjustment range is better than Blackburn
- Lighter mirror vibrates less than Blackburn

Note: The helmets I have used them on are the Giro Atmos, Giro Animas, Bell Forza II and Bell Phi II

Note that the entire portion of this object away from the mirror end is designed to be mounted INSIDE the helmet. One side of the "Dual-Lock" pad (come on, it's industrial velcro) sticks inside the rim of your helmet, and then the other side, with the mirror mount, attaches to that. That's a huge thing pressing against your noggin while you ride! I ground down the back of the mount somewhat and epoxied it to the outside: now it's a very useful and serviceable object. Wouldn't want to be without it. (Although, an oval would give you more view.)

I've had this model of mirror for the last seven years until I broke it (my fault.) Once used to using it can't think of not having it. One hint, at least for a road bike, position the mirror so you can see your ear. That will be about the right position when on your bike. I've had no problems with the glue backed Velcro type attachment to my helmet. The Velcro is really strong so be careful if removing from your helmet. I always keep it on my helmet.

This little mirror is the bee's knees! It works great, it's adjustable and it's not so big that it's a distraction while riding. I highly recommend.
My only issue was that it didn't quite stick to my helmet well. It comes with a Velcro pad and though the Velcro is intensely strong, the adhesive pad that it comes with to adhere with the helmet doesn't want to stay on too much. I eventually had to give it a little extra help with the use of some electrical tape. Luckily my helmet is black and this isn't even noticeable. This is the reason for 4 stars and not 5.
I do like this mirror and it's already saved my butt a few times, I just wish that it came with some the extra sticky pads.

Consistent with other reviews, I found that the Velcro attachment method resulted in direct contact pressure of the mounting bracket with my head. Not good. Furthermore, the Velcro is so stiff that it is nearly impossible to separate without ripping the pad off the helmet. This makes the Velcro attachment method pretty much useless.

Taking a cue from the other reviewers, I removed the Velcro pad from the mounting bracket, cleaned it and the helmet well, then proceeded to use hot glue to mount the mirror. This, my friends, works great and is quite secure.

It took me a few rides to get used to the mirror; I used to use a bar-end mirror on my road bike. But once I got used to it, it works quite well. This mirror allows me to keep my eyes on the road. It also allows me to view behind me even when I'm standing on the pedals, hammering up hills.

I have had this exact mirror for about 15 years, and the Velcro like attachment still works perfectly, but somehow i lost the mirror. When I saw this one I hoped it would be exactly the same and it is, so all I have to do is take the mirror out of the package and attach it to the existing Velcro on my helmet. I like being able to see what is behind me without having to turn around and look. The mirror does take a bit of getting used to, and you have to play with it to get it in the right position for best viewing, but it does work well.

I attached the Velcro part on the outside of my helmet since I have a rounded foam one, and it still works. I noticed there was a review that stated you couldn't take the mirror off the helmet,but it just pops off the Velcro so it is removable.

I had a helmet-mounted mirror on my old 1980's vintage Bell helmet that I liked very much. It was a clamp-on model though that was appropriate to the hard-shell helmets that were popular back them, but wouldn't fit the new style all-foam helmets of today. I found this Third Eye foam helmet mount mirror on Amazon and decided to take a chance although I was skeptical about the foam tape/velcro attachment method of this new mirror.

I was pleasantly surprised. After following the directions in the package and a little bit of trial and error locating of the mounting pad location on my helmet, I removed the backing tape and stuck it on. After two tries and having to gently peel off the foam tape from my helmet I got the mount where I wanted it, and was good to go. As would be expected, it took me a few tries to adjust the mirror and arm so that it was positioned correctly for rearview use, but after setting it and taking off my helmet and checking the position, I can now set the mirror position almost exactly before putting on my helmet. Also, about 2 months ago I got a new helmet, and I was concerned that I was going to have to replace the foam tape when I removed the assembly from my old helmet. No problem. With a little patient peeling I was able to remove the tape with it's glue and mount it on my new helmet where it is attached as permanently as it was to my old helmet.

If you like the idea of having a helmet-mounted rearview mirror, I would definitely recommend this one for you. Once you're used to having one, you won't want to be without one again.
