GMax Women's GM67 Butterfly Helmet
Love this helmet - heaps of venting that can be opened and truly comfortably, quality product.

Great for its money, but size up.
My mother bought this helmet for me once I finally decided what size to get. Before I begin I will state that my face is pretty close to being round, and I have wide temples compared to most people with my head size, and my head is not very rounded in the back either. This helmet seems to be shaped for women whose faces are either true oval or slightly more oblong. It fits very well in the back but I had to size up from the size chart. The size chart is somewhat inaccurate anyway, as my helmet should have been too big in the back with the size I ordered. It was not. It also barely fit at my temples. When ordering, size up one size, maybe two if you have wide temples.
My main concern with this helmet is that the description makes it seem like it comes equipped with the battery for the LED light in the back. It does not. There is nothing in the documentation about what kind of battery is needed either, and when you open the compartment it is obvious that it is not for your standard battery. I assume you must buy the battery separately. This is why I only give it a 4/5 for features.
I love the full face plate, again, your mileage might vary, but on me it dips an inch or two below my chin. Without a chin guard though the helmet is very breathable while still having some extra protection from the long face shield. I love the wide range of vision it gives me, as I already have some diminished peripheral vision and don't need more.
I am writing this on a average day for February, riding for about half an hour in 60 degree F weather, so I had all the vents closed. I have to assume that the vents work well as I won't be finding out until probably May.
Overall this helmet is great for its money, if you want to use the LED though you will have to buy the battery separately. It sizes a little small, but it's really a work of art. Overall, I'm glad I chose this as my first helmet!

Bang for the buck
Cool helmet, great view, comfortable, good airflow, the only detail i dont like is the union, between the windshield and the helmet, looks kind of cheap; the led in the back, a great feature, once you put the batteries :)

Excellent value and style for an unbelievable price
I bought this helmet as a spare for my Scorpion EXO 900. This helmet offers the option of adding a chin bar to convert to a full face helmet which was very important to me. The helmet offers a very comfortable fit with a very wide view and good air flow. It is surprisingly quiet for an open face helmet. It was easy to install the Sena communication system in this helmet as it features little pockets for the speakers. I wish the wires could have been hidden but it works fine. I ordered the purple version in hopes to match my purple and black jacket. Unfortunately the color is more of a periwinkle blue than a true purple. Aside from that I am extremely happy with the purchase and ordered an additional helmet in black for my husband. I would definitely recommend this helmet, It fits true to the sizing chart,

worth the money
My girlfriend loves it especially the internal sun shield

Not bad - nice features.
Good helmet with solid features. Sun shield extends down enough to be effective and is fairly dark. Comfortable helmet, size chart is accurate. My only criticism with the helmet is that it is a bit noisy and a bit heavy. Otherwise, it's a solid helmet with good features and a multi-configuration style.
