Bell Pit Boss Flames Helmet
My first order was a size medium. Apparently, I'm in between sizes & then ordered a large - much better fit. I think the rear adjustment is brilliant. It's almost like having a custom fit helmet. (Thankfully, my wife finds the medium just fine - no need to return it!)
Oddly enough, I found the noise level decent. No more resonance in a full-face lid. Still, a pair of decent earplugs are a decent add-on for a long day in the saddle.
The flip-down visor is hit/miss. The medium helmet put it square on my face - perfect. The large, however, sits slightly askew on my head so the visor hits the side of my nose - weird. (maybe my head is shaped a little weird - who knows...)
Overall - please with it & would definitely recommend it; especially for the price.

Good half helmet, fits small, visor airflow not great
2 months 1000 mi
Fit and finish good. Good value, adjustment mechanism works well, just like a bike or ski helmet
I am a 60/61 cm head circumference. helmet, size xl in shoei, nolan, Schubert etc. i ordered an xxl on this item, it was tight when new. Had to work the inner shell to get it comfortable. It's good now.
Integral visor is a cool feature, two criticisms: optics not as clear as premium helmets, and visor adds little air flow protection. Overall, I'm a little disappointed in this feature. This helmet is good around town and below 60 mph. Above that, windscreen required.
Would recommend to people with small and medium sized heads looking for an around town, adjustable, well priced half helmet.

It is nice to have an adjustment for smaller heads, thank you Bell for an awesome helmet.

Very nice half helmet
I bought this helmet for my wife to wear when we ride around the local area. I was looking for something she could get on and off easily and offered some protection, Since the size adjustment is so easy, I end up using it as well on short trips to the grocery store, etc.
I like the helmet. I like the fit for short trips. During longer periods however, I found it begins to hurt the top of my head. . I also like the drop down sun visor. However this part is kind of flimsy as it will detach easily if you don't flip it up and down just right. On the plus side it is easy to re-attach.

This half helmet is extremely comfortable and stylish. The adjustable band works well and snugs the helmet on your head. As others have said there is no airflow on top of your head, but I was comfortable riding in 90+ degree weather. Quality feels good and it seems to be as safe as a half helmet can be. I feel like I'm protected in this half shell with the slight drop down in the rear. Price was fair and Revzilla had it to me in Ca in less than two days.

Nice light helmet
The Bell Pit Boss is made very well. The fit and finish are what you would expect from Bell. The helmet is very light, has great field of view, and since it is a half helmet , it allows me to hear the stereo on my Goldwing. The flip down eye shield is a very nice touch that most half helemts do not have. Very comfortable helemt that is set up more for a slightly oval shaped head.

Pit Boss is great for cruising
This arrived quick, thanks RevZilla. It fits great and you can adjust the fit. I went on a group ride the next day after I got it and I immediately received compliments on it from several people. You can't go wrong with this one.
