Bell Helmets 3 Snap Bubble Shield
Very cool vintage face shield
I bought this shield for my Ruby open face helmet. The fit is perfect and it looks great.

this product works perfect. I feel the style goes great with my cafe racer.
This shield works perfect! I was tired of getting bugs caught in my teeth, but love my old school open face. Live this shield!

A great shield for the price
This a good shield that fits well on my Bitlwell Gringo helmet. Its only downfalls are it rubs on the helmet so I had to add felt bumpers to avoid paint rub off and the shield scratches very easily. Other than those it works great for daytime riding. I would not recommend it for night time riding.

works as described, looks good, works well with glasses.
I got the clear one for my Bell 500. There is room for sunglasses or regular glasses under the shield. The bubble protrudes enough to get your hand in to adjust glasses a bit, scratch your nose, use a hand nebulizer, etc. But it definitely gives you decent full face preotection with some air flow. At 65 mph I was able to turn my head and look onto other lanes without it catching the wind.

Much better than Biltwell bubble
I bought the DLX Gold Iridium to wear with my Biltwell Gringo helmet after I realized the Biltwell bubbles lack UV protection (the Bell has it).
UV protection, awesome looks, good color selection, universal fit. The DLX Gold Iridium provides a lot of shading, good for riding into the sun. In fact the photo makes the shield look much lighter than the real thing.
And of course, the price is great.
The Bad: The DLX shields' chrome trim is not very "deluxe." It is obviously some kind of coated plastic, the "chrome" is bubbling on the trim fresh out of the box, and the trim is separating from the shield, exposing glue beneath. I may try to remove it entirely and clean the glue off.
The shield is pretty dark. You won't want to use it long before the sun goes down. Riding with this shield an hour before sunset might be dangerous. YMMV with other colors.

Very usefull for those bugs
I am not the biggest fan of seeing a windshield on my bike so for the most part I leave it at home. However, I am the type of person that doesn't like to have a huge amount of bug guts on my face after a back country ride. This visor allows a bit of breeze onto your face, because of the dome doesn't fog and keeps your face clean from dust and bugs. It snaps on easily to the Bell helmets and I am able to keep it on while taking off and putting on the helmet. I have ridden with it on while driving 80+ on the highway with a strong wind and it did not pop off or even wiggle like I was afraid of it doing.

Fits a Biltwell Gringo helmet with some flexing.
I bought two of these shields, the wayfarer green and the iridium silver. So far my thoughts on the chrome lining, cheap. It mostly just gets in the way and any flexing in fitting the shield to a non bell helmet makes the lining crease and crinkle.
The color of the wayfarer green is dark and really helps against sunlight and glare. The color of the iridium silver is more of a mirror on the business end while inside the helmet it is a grayish tint.
Be careful of repeated removal and reinstallation because the plastic may crack, and the buttons don't stay tight forever.

i like the bell bubble face shield that i purchased because it keeps the cold wind from hitting my face.
