Icon Airframe / Alliance Chin Curtain
I have no idea what these other guys bought, including the other guy that had no idea!
I read all of the reviews. "Doesn't fit the alliance" "Had to trim the plastic" "Couldn't get it in all the way" etc. DON'T BELIEVE ANY OF THAT. I own an Icon Alliance Dark helmet. 1 minute in to trying to fit the thing in the front of the helmet I realized it may be a struggle. However I persisted and shoved the front as far as I could. After about 5 minutes of lining it up and pushing as hard as I could, I got in in a little more than half way just like everyone else. I was about to give up, take it out, and trim the plastic when I picked up a rubber mallot and smacked that baby down. Voila, what do you know, after a few hits to the front and around the edges of the entire thing, it fit all the way in WITHOUT TRIMMING THE PLASTIC.
TLDR: Get it in as far as you can, then smack that b with a rubber mallot! Fits perfectly.

I have no clue what these other guys bought!
As you're probably doing, I myself read the reviews before purchase this sweet thing. They were saying how long it took to get thing fitted and how its still not fitted right. Peep this.... From the point i skipped to my mailbox, ripped the box open, and trimmed the piece, it only look 10-15 mins. Theres a little notch in the middle of the skirt. i had to cut the entire thing off plus about a quarter inch of plastic around the entire piece in order for it to fit my Alliance perfectly! And boy does it make a difference!! Great buy for the price..

And they said it couldn't be done... :P
Confession time! I bought this chin curtain because the Icon Airmada Salient Helmet I bought here on Revzilla does not come with nor is a chin curtain even offered for it and I wanted to see if I could modify this one to work. :D
I can say that if you are handy with a pair of scissors and have some time on your hand you can definitely make the modifications necessary to fit this to the Icon Airmada Salient Helmet.
If you aren't handy and end up muffing it up you are only out a few bucks... ;)

As others have stated, it doesn't fit the Alliance Helmet
You can force it in about halfway or trim the plastic to make it work, but this clearly isn't meant for this helmet and shouldn't be advertised as such. It's only $7.00 so I don't think it's worth returning or making a fuss about, but I wish I had read all of the reviews first to at least be prepared for an annoying install.

This one piece has made the biggest difference with the amount of air flowing through my helmet. My phone calls, through my headset are clear and anyone can understand what's being discussed without interference from the wind.

Works, wiith a Couple Caveats
This chin curtain is great for what it is; however, if you are purchasing this for a helmet in the Alliance line, be warned - you will have to trim the plastic part to make this curtain fit.
Also, it does take some time/work to get this into a position where it feels secure, and flush. I haven't taken it off my Alliance Dark since I trimmed it as it really isn't "in the way" and does help with airflow/noise.

does what its supposed to
so i will start with the negative just to get it out of the way. I had to trim the piece that slips into the helmet for whatever reason it wouldnt go in no matter how hard i tried, and i had to cut a good deal off. That being said after i slowly trimmed little by little off to get an exact fit, i havent had it fall out yet. i mainly got this because i have a sena and wanted to keep wind noise out of my mic and it works great. it is perforated so it will allow some air inside so you dont sweat but it diverts it just enough to keep it from my mic. overall it does what its supposed to do and im happy with the purchase.

Does it's job.
Requires a little elbow grease to install, but works as designed. For colder weather, I would prefer that it was a little more closed off, but I suppose that would make the helmet more difficult to put on. It cuts the wind significantly, so no complaints!
