Biltwell Bubble Shield
Functional and stylish
This shield protects me effectively while getting me compliments from total strangers on my "'70s look." What else can you ask for?
I've had to get used to snapping it on without looking (that took some doing, but I managed to figure out how). Basically, you secure one of the end snaps, then the other end snap, then the center snap. The two end snaps slide horizontally in their channels, so there's a bit of play available in exactly how it fits onto the helmet.
I wear glasses; when putting on the helmet, if I secure only the left and right snaps (and not the center snap), I can flip the shield up slightly and put my glasses on, then secure the middle snap for security.
All 3 snaps need to be secured; if you ride at highway speed with only 2 of them secured, the wind may lift the shield off the helmet.

I expected much more from this Shield
After reading most all the reviews that were all good. But quite disappointed. 1st of all I had to pull over twice 1st time I rode with it. OMG the sounds from the wind on the highway if you ride over 55 was horrible. I thought something was hitting the helmet from my coat or sweatshirt or my hair. But finally figured out it was the Wind that comes down between the Helmt Shield and the Helmet from where the Snaps are. About a 1/2 inch gap and the winds bangs into your ears & I found it annoying as heck. If I put my hand up to that part I could block the wind & noise but who riding a motorcycle can keep your hands up to blcok the sound unless you want to die from not keeping your hands where they belong to steer the bike. DUH. & I can't get the dang thing off now without feeling like I am going to break it. Wish you guys would have said more about the NOISE problem. Or maybe it's just me?

Overall great product
Fits the gringo style perfectly and looks nice. Snaps on and off.
The blue tint doesn't affect visibility at all haven't used it at night though.
Overall great product and fast shipping.

The product has good build quality, despite the low cost. No scratches so far. The only downside is that its darker than the picture in the site (I've choosen smoke grey). Not appropriate for cloudy weather.

it fits my Bell Custom 500 and looks like it belongs. Unlike the bell shield I bought, the bubble shield sits far enough from my face that it doesn't fog up from my breath as much on cooler nights. The blue tint is clear enough to see at night.

have only used it twice so far and its perfect..
purchased this to use when it rains, and during night riding, ended up not taking it off during my day ride. solid product and should have gotten one years ago...

This is a quality product, it fits perfectly, adds safety, and doesn't fog up!
I was skeptical adding this bubble shield to my matte black gringo, but now I'm extremely pleased. The look is sporty-retro and the reflective version looks slick. The shield fit snugly with a slight gap for proper airflow. Protects my face and gets plenty if air to avoid fog up on those cool mornings. This will be staying on the helmet for sure!
