HJC CL-17 Chin Curtain
Conflicted about this product, as it sucks, but its the only one available.
This product is tough to review. It is the only chin curtain for this helmet because it was designed for it. The helmet allows in a lot of wind, so this is kind of an essential item during colder weather. The problem is that the chin curtain itself sucks. It clips in on the front part of the helmet fine, but the velcro that comes attached to it is horrible. It is supposed to velcor onto the existing cheekpads that come with the helmet. I cannot even get it to stick when inside and not wearing the helmet. While riding there is no way to keep the wind out without the corner pieces being attached. If i cannot get it to stay in indoor conditions how on earth would it be able to stay while riding a motorcycle? Would not recommend this product to anyone.

Works well with my helmet
I purchased a CL 17 and it did not have this feature. It keeps the air from blasting up the front of the helmet along with the occasional bug

What can I say, it's a chin curtain. People are complain that wind still gets in their helmets, well, duh. You need some air flow, if it was a complete blockage then you would get fog on your shield like crazy. This does a good job at blocking some wind while still allowing some ventilation.
I bought this because one day a bee flew into my helmet, thanks to this chin curtain I will never have to worry about that happening again.
Cheap price, easy install, very happy customer.

Does what it says
Greatly reduces the up draft while riding. Its a bit awkward sliding on the helmet now but well worth it.

I bought this the stop wind from entering my helmet through the chin area and to the cutdown wind noise. It fits well and looks like it belongs with the helmet but it did next to nothing to solve the reasons I bought it for...

Good for all weather
I bought this after a speck of dirt flew into my eye on the freeway when i had my visor down and was wearing sunglasses. It keeps some of the wind out of the helmet so the cold air keeps out a little better in the morning but it still lets air in so on hotter days I'm not dying.

Easy to install on my HJC CL-17 helmet. Really cuts down on wind noise for me as well as providing a more stable feel at speed.

Wore for a total of 150km and it's failing. Tabs that lock in bend and break on first use. I must have gotten a melon. Flops around in wind.
