The HJC FG-Jet Helmet is a modernly-styled open face helmet that features a full face shield for keeping the wind and bugs at bay. The "FG" in FG-Jet stands for fiberglass.

    • Aerodynamic shell with large eyeport opening for greater visibility
  • HJ-V7 SunShield Visor System
    • One-touch integrated smoke-tinted SunShield (Patent Pending #11/335,855) deploys and retracts quickly and easily
    • Adjustable to three positions
  • ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System
    • ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System provides flow-through ventilation
    • Multi-Stage intake vents and exhaust vents allow full front-to-back fresh airflow that flushes heat and humidity out of the helmet
  • SilverCool™ Interior
    • Moisture-Wicking and odor-free interior with advanced SilverCool™ antibacterial fabric
    • Comfortable, removable and washable
  • HJ-17R Shield and Quickslide Shield Replacement System

Great for hot weather & city commuting
I wear a full face helmet for long trips, but that helmet is too hot for stop-and-go traffic in the city so I needed a cooler alternative for my commute to work. This helmet is very cool - it's covered with vents in addition to the circulation that comes up from below the visor. The visor is long enough that the airflow doesn't blow in your eyes or become otherwise annoying. The sunshade is easy to flip down/up while on the go and makes a nice addition to the helmet (as I often forget my sunglasses until I make a turn at the end of the street right into the morning sun). I usually wear a large in other helmets, but bought a XL based on reviews here and made the right choice. I don't wear this for long trips so I can't comment on the long-term comfort, but it's great for short trips.

Great helmet, lots of features, only minor quibbles
I'm in the military so virtually everything I buy is hi-viz, not JUST because it has to be--though the helmet doesn't have to be at all according to our instructions--but because I'm a firm believer in being seen from as many different vantage points as possible--this helmet will certainly help! The finish is very nice and professional--no cracks/tears where parts are fitted together, no flaws in painting or coloring, no unfinished edges that need sanding or deburring, etc...it's a very nice-looking helmet and VERY easy to spot in a crowd. At least on the helmet I got, it didn't have a cheesy white HJC sticker on the front as shown in the illustration, but a nicer raised/textured logo like the one featured on the black Jet helmet in the video review. I was surprised that there were so many vents for 3/4 helmet but it did flow air nicly though it was hard to tell beyond the air already coming up below the shield...note however that the vent mechanisms are dials rather than rockers/switches so while you can tailor the amount of venting you get to a limited degree--though why would you want to given how small the vents are to begin with--it's not terribly easy to maniuplate with gloves on. The lip of the visor has a small edge along the entire length, but otherwise, there's no thumb tab to aid in opening/closing. I couldn't pull the liner away from the shell to mount my Cardo G4--not a deal-killer or a drawback per se, I just used the adhesive mounting plate, but it's worth noting for those of you thinking about using a clamp mount for your bluetooth/intercom. The liner includes smaller flaps near the ears for internal speakers below them but you'll need to mount velcro to the inner shell for them to stick; I only bring this up because my wife's GMax 3/4 helmet actually had fabric "pockets" that allowed us to simply drop in the bluetooth speakers. The fabric liner itself doesn't offer full "skull cap" coverage across the top--instead, there's a single "stripe" of material that goes from the font to the back of the crown padding that fits around your head; depending on how tight it is on you, you just MIGHT be able to feel the insde shell/inner venting channels on the top of your head to the left and right of that center panel...note that you can see this momentarily in the video review during a discussion of the removable liner. Note too that because of this design you will therefore get a VERY strange/pronounced helmet hairdo when you remove it...a bit of a reverse mohawk because you've got the center stripe of the liner pinning down a swathe of hair across the middle of your head while the rest is open to the inner shell of the helmet; of course, those of you with little to no hair obviously have less to worry about than I did! The very front portion of the forehead liner has an opening with several venting holes in it, but for some reason, it gave me a nice, sharply defined red line straight down the middle of my forehead--I'll be cruising with a cap for after the ride or a small beanie while it's on from this point forward. The inernal sun visor is fantastic and part of the reason I bought this helmet over other 3/4 alternatives. You can stop it at any point along its path to full deployment--which is great, because it's got a very pronounced curvature inwards...at full extension, it hit the bridge of my nose until I adjusted the helmet on my head just slightly; I have seen this compaint on a few other reviews of the same helmet/helmet line.

Still, I consider all of these to be minor issues--it's relatively quiet for a 3/4 helmet, pretty comfortable even after several straight hours of wear, and comes with a lot of features that I wouldn't have expected in a $150-ish helmet.

Shield needs improvement
I really like this helmet. The only problem I have is I thought it had a fog proof shield and quickly learned in the rain that it doesn't. I had to flip up the shield and where glasses in order to see without my breath causing the shield to fog up.

Awesome!
Thanks to Revzilla, I found out my head size and shape and then went shopping on their site. Have just bought a Honda Grom (black) and wanted to be as visible as possible so decided on a high Viz helmet compared to my other black helmets. Here are the pros: perfect fit, snug and face padding is comfortable - glossy, shiny bright colour - chin strap easy to use - sun visor easy to use - vision is wide and clear - can use my prescription glasses under both visors - helmet is light, no neck issues at all - air vents (easy to use) and sun visor controls on helmet add to appeal. Con: wind noise increases when air vents are open and is rather loud. For those women out there looking for a light, eye catching and smart looking helmet with lots of accessories - this is the one! P.S. the helmet arrived before I could blink!

A Dual-Sport Gem
I was looking for a helmet for dual-sport riding. I prefer the visibility and light weight of an open-face helmet for this kind of riding. I also consider a face shield to be a must-have item. This is a well-made, fairly quiet, and very comfortable helmet. The drop-down visor is also a wonderful feature, especially for those of us with eyeglasses with transitions lenses - they don't darken under the UV resistant shield.

Be sure to check the size chart before ordering. If you wear a large in most other brands, you may need an XL like I did. Thanks to Revzilla for making the swap so easy.

Great Looking helmet but sizing is way off
This is the only open face helmet in neon yellow that you can get. Too bad it is two sizes smaller than HJC claims it to be.
My head felt like it was in a vice, an XXL was too tight for a 126 pound girl. I am not sure what is going on at HJC I own several HJC helmets and this one was unusable.

Tight around jaw line!!!
I have a large in the hjc IS33 helmet and love it but I wanted a hi-viz helmet. I ordered a large FG-JET and it was extremely tight around the jawline. I sent it back and got an XL but upon receiving it, its still tight around the jawline and a little big around the crown of my head. I had to send it back as well. I am very dissapointed as I was really wanting a hi-vis 3/4 helmet and really liked my HJC IS 33. Oh well looks like I'm stuck with a non hi-viz for now.

Good bang for the buck.
Excellent airflow with the 3 vents making short work of any interior shell heat. But, with the shield completely closed, LOUD!

I'm a fan of HJC helmets and like the high viz color and long shield for winter months. This helmet matches my high viz FG Kilimanjaro jacket.

I'm just learning to ride and wanted a summer helmet for Texas heat. I saw and read many reviews and tried on the HD version of this helmet and really liked it. I wanted a hi viz helmet so I purchased it at revzilla.
Monique B on Jul 26, 2014
I purchased this particular helmet because I wanted an open face for added comfort during the upcoming summer heat. I chose the Hi-Viz yellow color to maximize visibility for safety.
Douglas J on Mar 25, 2014
I just purchased one for myself. This one is for my wife.
Ronald G on Nov 15, 2013
The face shield allows the visor to not fog up, and the high visibility helps you stay "noticed".

I'm interested in this helmet in hi viz. Is it DOT approved?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is DOT approved. The helmet quality is excellent but it fits very snug around the cheeks.
what does the helmet weigh in a SM, and how does it compare to the Bell Mag 9?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER:
I imagine you can get the specs re weight in a small from the list in the description etc. and compared to the Mag 9? I have not owned one.

I do KNOW that I'm a lot more visible by the way fewer cars seem to move in front of me, and spot my color easily. I don't believe I'm imagining it. It's like driving around with the sun or moon overhead. Have fun
Where does this helmet sit on the shape scale of 1 (narrow) to 5 (round)?
A shopper on May 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I like the scale! I am going to say the HJC FG-Jet Helmet would wind up as a 4, since it is pretty round, whereas the Arai Signet-Q would be a 1, and the AFX FX-200 would be a solid 5.
