Bell Custom 500 Retro 3 Snap Shield
Does what it needs to do. I'd recommend to a fellow rider, also bought a bubble shield but gravitate more to the flat face shield more.

Fits on Biltwell Gringo
Ordered this just to qualify for free shipping, and I'm glad I did. Big improvement on my peripheral vision over the goggles I was wearing, which is no surprise.
I had seen online and heard that it would fit on Biltwell helmets but I wasn't totally sure until I got it home and tried it out. I put it on my Gringo and it fits perfectly. Not a lot of hassle snapping it into place and it seems stable from what I can tell.
I haven't had a chance to ride around with it on yet, but it completely covers the face opening on the Gringo (size small) so I probably won't get much ventilation anymore, contrarily, it will provide more protection and my vision is increased that much more.
Aesthetically speaking, it looks good on the helmet (I got the amber gradient) and it's something different from the bubble shield everyone's got.

Waste of time and money.
I bought two of these, one clear and one smoke. I was really pleased at first but after they "broke in" the visors just flip in and out every time I move my head. It’s really frustrating riding in the DC Baltimore area because I'm always looking over my shoulder changing lanes and this annoying shield flips up letting all sorts of air in. I just use my Bell helmet with sunglasses now and once it gets cold enough I'm just going to order a full face helmet and save the head ache. Also my clear one has only been used about 4 times and the snap broke on it. Just a cheap product...

Clear and well rounded face shield
Snaps firmly into place. it is clear and the curvature is aesthetically pleasing as well as great for shedding airflow.

Great face shield.
Fits my 3/4 helmet perfectly. They fit even when I am wearing my glasses. Easy snap-on and off. I use it whenever I travel on the freeway especially at higher speeds. Makes the ride more comfortable.

a face shield. for your face.
so it turns out that she was the president's cousin's ex-wife's niece! So you can imagine what happened...
wait. Let me start at the beginning...
As the Earth began to cool, lightning struck the primordial soup which provided a catalyst for increasingly more complex protein chains to form, eventually giving rise to what we know as life.
wait. too far back.
Are you really reading a review for a face shield? If you have the matching helmet - it works. You snap it on to your helmet, and things like wind, rain and flying insects will hit the shield instead of your face. I know right? It's like a REVOLUTION!
One big selling point: the faded pink tint. We ride bikes because it makes us happy, friends. This shield will enable you to ride while LITERALLY viewing the world through a rose-colored lens. KA-POW!!
It's a face shield. Buy it.

Worth the $20
I like the fade, its not too dark for night time use. Its a bit loud on the highway,and if you turn your head wind can pull the shield up on the snaps, not a big deal. Ultimately, it adds some versatility to my 3/4 helmet for a minimal price.
