HJC HJ-17J Face Shield
Dark Smoke looks badass but it get scratched easily
Bought the dark smoke face shield for sunny days. One of the main reasons for my purchase though was that I admittedly thought I looked silly with such a big helmet that should such a small face wit the clear visor. Put on the dark smoke helmet and the helmet suddenly looks ten times more badass. The tinted visor did its job and was perfect for sunny days. My only complaint is that it gets scratched easily, but the marks don't disturb my field of view and they are barely noticeable because of the darker color.
Lastly. I don't regret this purchase but I am starting to see that I bought the visor for cosmetic reasons more than practicality. The fact that I have to switch visors at night is bothersome and for no reason as this helmet comes with an integrated sun visor, which does the job just right. For $20 the price is a bit high but you get slightly better sun protection and great looks.

Cheap and handy low speed scooter or round town helmet
Wanted a helmet that had great visibility for very short low speed trips around town that was easy on and off... and inexpensive. This does a great job. Doesn't look bad either really.

I have an odd shaped head...longer than round. I bought and returned 3 helmets before finding this one. This helmet is exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend it.

Using measurements listed for this helmet, I ordered a Medium which was way too small. The Large fits and is very snug around the jaw area. I'm sure it will "loosen up" over time. Helmet seems to be well built and I find the built in sun shield is great for riding in the Las Vegas sunshine.

Great helmst, great sheild
I put the silver sheild on my IS-33 to keep my face from getting so sunburned. On long trips it pays off. This is a very quiet high air flow 3/4 helmet. Quality is very good for it's price. I would highly recommend this helmet for year round use. It does fit rounded heads extremely well, just like mine. I also recommend the UCLEAR HBC200 bluetooth headset with this helmet, the boomless system was made for this helmet and it's the only headset that works well with my iPhone 4. Thanks

The shield was back ordered, and when it came in I was immediately notified and the ordering process was a breeze, Very happy with their service and the shield was easy to install on the helmet. Thanks

Good visor but scratches easily
So the only reason I gave this a moderate score is because its pretty expensive and scratches easily. Plus there is nothing really different to say about it, its your average visor. I'd expect a little more endurance for the price though.
