Bell Helmets 3 Snap Bubble Shield
I saw this mask at a bike show and it looked perfect for my RSD Bell helmet. The thing is I wear a XXL helmet and it was extremely difficult to fit to the helmet. After a few hours of wearing it, I almost lost the screen. It popped loose from the same fitment issues. On the bike, visibility and ventilation are amazing. Styling is a 10.

Perfect Accessory for 3/4 helmets
Picked up this Bubble Shield for my Bell 3/4 helmet, but it also fits my Biltwell 3/4 as well. The chrome trim adds a very vintage feel to the shield, and gives it a nice fit and finish.
I wear glasses, and have had no issues getting the helmet on or off while using the Bubble shield. I do have to put the helmet on at a slight angle though. Trying to put the helmet straight on, does result in my glasses bumping into the shield.
It is pretty much 90 degrees everyday during the summer, and I was worried that the shield would block air flow. It does a little, but there is still more than enough that gets through for you to stay cool.
3/4 helmets are noisy, and adding a shield is not going to solve that issue. If you have a 3/4 helmet, and are worried about noise, try picking up a good set of ear plugs, or adding a tall windshield to the front of your bike. I have a quick release, 4 point mount, Givi shield that I use during the cooler months. As soon as I put it on, the noise level drops dramatically, but you do lose a ton of direct air flow.
I picked up the Wayfare dark green tint bubble shield. It is dark enough that I can look at the sun without having to wear sun glasses, but it does tend to "mute" certain colors (like yellows). This is a big deal when I am trying to determine if someone has their turn signal on, or what color a stop light is, or when having contrast would warn me of traffic related issues. It is also way too dark to use at night. I still like the tint, use it all the time, and would probably pick it up again, but I do have to be a little more careful with my awareness.

Worth the money
I use this face shield as an alternative to my windshield. It has great visibility and allows the right amount of airflow into the helmet. Only complaint is that I have trouble detaching the face shield from the helmet, which doesn't bother me too much because I dig the look.

A must for your bell custom 500
Great product a mist have.i highly suggest all the options in color. Even thought I got the clear and ordered the smoke. I was still satisfied

The product works, but the snaps are beyond poor, the rivets on the snaps broke the first time I removed the shield.
Although I intend on using the shield more than not using it, the shield snaps are horrible and the first time the shield was removed they were rendered useless. I had to modify them with a punch to avoid dealing with return drama, plus I doubt that the snaps would be any different on the replacement. The shield itself is fine, but it needs to be tight on the helmet and one should be able to put it on and remove it easily many times, this will be totally useless after a few more removals I believe. Sorry to say that I cannot recommend the shield.

Center snap broke right out of the package
I just ordered and received a Bell Custom 500 helmet in Matte Black and ordered this 3 snap bubble shield in Mint to go with it. It's my first helmet... I'm happy with it and it fits great, but I should have thought about how easy matte paint surfaces get scrapped and marred. Anyway, I took the bubble shield out of its packaging and it looked just as I had hoped it would. As I started to snap it to the helmet, the middle metal snap on the bubble shield broke off. I hadn't even touched it yet. It looks like they take the manufactured bubble shield and then insert two pieces that make up the "snap"... kinda like a grommet. When they attached the pieces of metal together with the shield sandwiched in the middle, the interior metal piece that connects the two pieces must have failed. It just kind of fell off the shield as I started to attach it to the helmet. That was very disappointing. So... now I'm missing the center snap and I don't feel like taking the time and money to return it. Bad reflection of quality control. It happens though and I won't hold it against RevZilla as it's not their fault, just bad luck... they are great and I appreciate their website and service.
