Bell Drifter DLX Black Ops Helmet
YOU NEED ONE OF THESE!!
Love this helmet!!! Fits well super comfortable. I like the look a lot!! The helmet is worth every penny. The only downfall is the matte finish as with all matte finishes it takes oil and sweat easily so needs wiped down before putting away. All in all its my new go to helmet!

Nice helmet, not to flashy and not too blah. Nice fit for my big head, and lightweight, for the most part I don't even feel it there.

I bought this helmet because I like to wear goggles and this is has the goggle strap at the back and I liked the style. It has delivered to expectation - it looks good, fits very well with the wheel at the back and is very comfortable. Had it up to 75mph and no lift at all!!
My only criticisms are that it has quite a lot of wind noise at higher speeds which is caused by the leading strap (which is unavoidable with a helmet of this style) and that the surface is reasonably easily scratched - keep it in its provided bag when not wearing it!

Slightly large but snug
This helmet has a bit larger profile than I would have liked, but don't they all? It seemed to fit a bit large on my head, but after riding with it I've noticed even at a little large the wind isn't catching it and pushing it up around town. Once I hit highway speeds I tighten it down with the adjustment in the back and have never noticed an issue. It's a very comfortable helmet, that I think looks great even with it's larger profile. Little issue; one of the thin black stripes came partially off, just a small section, while wiping down my helmet. That is somewhat normal for graphics in my experience and I try to be careful when cleaning or toting my helmets around. Good helmet, especially for the price, I'm really enjoying it.

Exactly what I was looking for.
I needed a beanie for summer riding in the DC area since it's hot and humid around here. The Drifter is well made, well thought-out, and it has an effective adjustment device. I was a little skeptical of the "turn to tighten" thing on the back but now I think it should be on every helmet. It allows you to fine tune the fit of your helmet and it eliminates helmet rise at speed. I have to crank mine all the way down to make it really secure since my head is at the lower end of the medium size but if I wear a bandana under it and use the crank system the helmet doesn't move at all, regardless of speed (I tried to get it to lift... it doesn't). The removable ear flaps are nice on a high wind day or if you want something to hold your headphones in (a bandana works for that, too). While it does seem a little thick at first, the mushroom head effect isn't too bad for a helmet that will actually save your grape. In summary, this is a great helmet and I recommend it to anyone who wants a well-fitting, working half helmet. Oh, and the way the brim peaks out over the front acts as a little sun visor if you need it to.

Good looking and comfy
Bought it for my daughter, she loves it. The adjustable fit is great, she's still growing. It raised her cool status at school, kids come running up to chat with her when we're pulling up. She wears it with airfoil goggles.

Great style, fit and comfort
This helmet looks great! Slim styling so you don't look like you're from another planet. Very comfortable and the ability to customize the fit with the back adjustment really makes the helmet feel like its secure on your head without feeling too tight. It also prevents the wind from pushing it back when cruising without a windshield. I ordered it for my wife, and now I'm getting the same one for myself. Good value for the price too. I will use it when riding my Harley and my Ural.
