Bell Helmets 3 Snap Bubble Shield
Great functional must have
Bought this with a bell 500, for a ride from Bellingham WA to SoCal. This thing was awesome.snapped it on and off as needed. Stowed well and was easy to use. Optical quality was better than expected. I bought the green and dug it but kinda had a hipster spaceman look. NFG. I choose to ride, and this facilitated. No fog ups like my full face. If you ride vintage-you need this

Another Good Product from Bell
I'm very impressed with Bell products. I have a Custom 500 helmet which I use with the reviewed visor. The visor is sturdy and cleans well. Very good bang for the buck.

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.
