Icon Optics Face Shield
I bought the Silver "Mirror" Face Shield
So I bought the silver "mirror" face shield, I wanted the mirrored shield because I like the anonymity it gives me while I am on my bike. A lot of motovloggers wear Icons with mirror face shields and it works perfectly judging from their videos, but for me... not so much. When it was in the packaging it looked perfect you couldn't see through it at all, but when I installed it on my helmet it was less than perfect. You could kind of see through it, but I figured i was in my house so it is a "low level" lighting environment, when I'm out riding it would be better. Figures i was wrong, you could see through it even easier. It almost looked like a smoke shield with a brownish tint to it. I put it side-by-side to my scorpion that has a gold mirror visor and there was a HUGE difference. The scorpion was impossible to see through, while on my Icon, I might as well have a clear face shield on it. I expected better from Icon. Unfortunately I didn't get this from Revzilla so I can't return it, but I will probably go back to the dark smoked shield on my helmet.
Revzilla has great customer service, this review is in no way a reflection on what I think of Revzilla.

Slick and clean
I purchased the blue optics facesheild and it works great! I attached it to my blue thriller airmada helmet by icon and it really brings out the color. Sliding the facesheild up and down is really smooth and doesnt get caught. Also swapping out the facesheilds is really fast and very easy. Definitely a great purchase.

easy to install, but...
Ok, so I have had my airmada helmet for alittle over ayear I love the helmet ithink it's the best fitting helmet icon has ever made but ithink the visor could be better ihad to replace it after six months due to scratching from wiping it with my visor wiper on my glove during the winter months,and now it's winter again and my new visor is all scratched too I even tried just using my finger to clear my visor and it still got scratched, also ithink by now we all know anti_fog is some kind of a joke lucky it's not that expense to replace and is very easy to install

Easy to install
I bought the RST Silver Mirror face shield. Its great for sunny daytime riding and surprisingly isn't bad in the early morning before the sun comes up. Shield looks great and is easy to install.

I bought the dark smoke faceshield and it fits perfectly and looks great. When it rains, there are no leaks. This shield is dark enough to keep out the sun, but light enough to still see pretty well at night. Great product.

Great mirrored visor.
It's tinted, so you can not use or at night. For day riding only.

I put this shield on my Icon Airmada Rubatone and it looks badass! Total stealth mode, it's dark enough that it feels like I'm wearing my sunglasses. I can easily switch shields from dark to clear when it gets dark. Did I mention it looks awesome on the Rubatone. Next up will be the Silver mirrored shield!

no glare or fog works as it should.
Excellent field of view much bigger than my other brands of helmets.
