Great job I Made a mistake and sent the product to the wrong address. They fixed it at no cost! Great job! December 29, 2014
Recomiendo esta vicera ... Tengo en 5 colores diferentes y son lo maximo...de muy buena calidad y me gusta el estilo retro.. December 11, 2014
Amazing helmet. Fits just like the military fighter pilot helmet with great peripheral vision. The only downside, it's hard to put sunglasses on when you have the clear face shield. Super lightweight and comfortable. November 24, 2014
It does what it is meant to do Overall great product but the coating appears to be coming off already and I have only road with the shield for a couple weeks November 10, 2014
Worth It I bought this for my Biltwell lid but it was a bit too small. Through it on my Bell helmet though and it has been worth it. Doesn't get scratched up too bad and keeps bees out of my face. Worth it! October 6, 2014
Great Retro look on the Custom 500 Not much more to say than it looks and functions great on the Custom500 helmet. Adds a vintage touch to an already cool helmet September 23, 2014
awesome looking on my biltwell gringo It takes some bending and work to get it to fit on the gringo but the final look is awesome September 22, 2014
A shield by any other name... I purchased a couple of these 3 snap shields for my wife and I. Since we bought Biltwell Bonanza helmets that don't have shields (but do have snaps on the helmet) purchasing these shields was a no-brainer, and honestly it was really the only option unless we wanted bubble shields. The fit is great, the vision is clear, and they even adjust a little bit once they are snapped onto the helmet so you can pull the shield down a little more to cover more of your face if you'd like. Until I realized that, I thought the shield was a little on the short side and allowed too much air under it and in into my eyes...not anymore though! I bought clear shields instead of going for the gradient tints or dark tint versions. I don't want to ride without a line of defense between rocks and my face, so I figured clear was the best all around choice. The dark tint would be nice, but I would imagine riding at night wouldn't work so well just as you wouldn't wear sunglasses at night...I'm looking at you Corey Hart! August 25, 2014

Robert Z: My go to choice when unexpected rain hits and I still have to get somewhere. My last one lasted about 2 years, and seemed to rust to the buttons on my rock hard 3/4's lid. Worth the money and fits perfectly on top a duffel. Jul 19, 2014

michael p: I have the Gringo, and I'm pretty sure the buttons are the same as the Bonanza. I ordered this shield before I read the Q&A, but when I got the shield, much to my surprise, it fit! I had to move the snaps all the way out, and it just fit. It's tight, but all three buttons snapped on. I took the bike out for a ride, and had no problems.

On a side note, for those Gringo owners, the middle snap is adjustable vertically, which means you can move the shield up just enough to help with fogging issues.

Pat D asked: Hi Zilla nation, I'm using the clear retro 3 snap shield but was thinking about getting the smoked one as well since riding with the sun in my eyes is getting annoying and as you know it is pretty annoying to get sun glasses in and out with this retro shield on.

My question, is the amber gradient shield made to keep the sun out of your eyes during the day and also be clear enough at night? I have a gloss black bell custom 500 but I would still get the amber shield if it can save me from bringing around two shields every day.

Also is the smoked shield light enough so that you can use it at night as well?

Thanks a lot everyone who takes the time to answer.

A shopper asked: Can you (RevZilla) confirm the color of the 3 snaps on the Amber Gradient version? I have seen images where they are chrome and others where they are black. Thanks! Jul 14, 2014

MARK B: Their black on the amber gradient after checking mine. I've had two of these after loosing one on the freeway at high speed when high cross winds ripped it off! The shield offers some titling away from your chin when fitted which allows easier breathing which can then be pulled down closer to the face when underway.
Make sure the press studs are tight and I'd recommend adjusting their internal wire clamps in the female housing or thickening up the helmet stud say with PTF tape as an idea. Good luck.
