HJC CL-17 Mystic Women's Helmet
This is an awesome helmet! My boyfriend got it for me and I love it! The fit is snug with space for a pony tail or bun. It breathes better than other helmets I've tried on and is so comfortable. I usually have all but one vent closed due to the amount of air flow in this helmet. I will be repurchasing this helmet because I know I can trust it with my life. I has a crash in it and slid 70ft after being rear ended into another vehicle. My neck and head are fine and I was fully conscious during the entire ordeal. The helmet it self survived the crash with just a few scratches and no dents. My custom wind screen has the most damage.

Good helmet, haven't had to use it yet.
The shipping was very fast and customer service was great.
The 2X helmet fits very nicely for my huge head.
It did take a little while to break in, but it got a lot more comfortable after that.
Seems very durable and safe, but I haven't had to test it to the extreme, yet.
Overall, this is the best deal for a Snell certified helmet I could find.

The helmet is appealing for its appearance with graphics. I wish it had built in shades. The size I wear is normally an extra large in the HJC brand but this one is snugggg in a 2x.

Good helmet at a good price
I had an HJC Dirt Bike Helmet that I really liked, so when it came time to get a Street Helmet, I decided to go with an HJC. The gray and purple helmet is beautiful. I chose a size S....the same as my dirt bike helmet. It's a bit more snug than I would like in the cheek area, but fits really well everywhere else, so I am hoping that will break in and loosen up over time. It's not uncomfortable enough to affect my joy or riding or concentration while I am riding. The face shield was REALLY hard to move up and down the first few times that I tried.

Love the helmet...
So I'm getting back into riding after years of being away and picked up my first helmet, which sucked badly. I then come to RevZilla and found the CL-17 Redline (in blue/white). This helmet came quickly, fit perfectly, is quiet, has plenty of airflow, looks great and is quite safe for the dollar value. Both DOT and Snell - that's nice and for the price you can't beat it.!

Great helmet, especially for the price.
The HJC CL-17 is my favorite helmet that I have owned in 12 years of riding. The helmet was only about $20 more than cheap helmets I have owned in the past, but the quality is on a much higher level. I ride in Egypt currently, and even in the Egyptian heat, the helmet's ventilation performs well.

This helmet is miles ahead of the off-brand helmet I was wearing before. For this price, I don't think you can find many better, especially considering the SNELL safety rating. Very comfortable fit, shaped nicely, no terrible yanks on the neck doing shoulder checks at speed.
I do wish it came with the chin curtain and pin lock. Even at 60 degrees it can be chilly and fogs easily.

Great looking helmet, excellent value though one glitch
I purchase the yellow/grey/black graphic which looks even better in person. Much better design than my old IS-16 as the CL-17 seems to have better vent mechanism quality. I am a bit disappointed it didn't come with a chin curtain like my IS-16 though. Shipping was very quick to Canada without hassle. The helmet did have one defective base plate visor mechanism that would not stay in the open position when removing or replacing the visor, hence the hit on durability rating. I contacted Revzilla and within a day they had found a solution that didn't cost me a dime. They managed to avoid getting me to send the helmet back (which would be expensive from Canada) or having to deal with HJC directly. A+ to the helmet but A++ for Revzilla customer service.
