Very cool and weird
Ok, so this product is super cool, It is a very forward-thinking way to protect your helmet while carrying it around or storing it. It is definitely a luxury and not a necessity. But, if you were going to buy a helmet case, this is worth a look. I bought this because I am scoping out new helmets to buy. The ones I am looking at are in the $600 dollar range and I don't want it banged up. You might say, "lock it to your bike." But I can't trust it to idiots who think a cut strap is a quick fix, or that it might be worth something sold at pennies on the dollar. I just won't take that chance.
Pros: Very form-fitting and light weight. Has a carry strap and handle. It it neoprene so weather will not bother it. Best feature? it is simply the coolest way to protect your helmet when carrying it around an urban or even a hiking etc. environment. You can strap it to, or carabiner it (using the d-rings) to your back pack. I will use it carabinered to my backpack for the walk to my office. It comes with a compression sack to store it when not in use and this is VERY handy as it really compresses down small, something you could not do with a helmet bag. Just looks super cool.
Cons:(some of these are POTENTIAL cons......don't know yet). The neoprene is not a sold piece and has many seams. Not sure how this is going to hold up over time. The carry handle is too small to get your hand in comfortably. Surprisingly, the carry strap is really chintzy (I have several Kriega products and nothing is chintzy). Is is super compliant, and therefore will not protect your helmet from a drop from height (maybe from your hand to concrete but certainly onto something sharp a rock whatever). It is expensive. $59 is a little high for something that is not a case, but personally I did not want another case to carry around in addition to my backpack, I just wanted helmet protection when I bang it against something. The die cast slot for the d-rings is tight and I am afraid it will begin to tear over time, but again, I can't know this. While it does have a flap to keep the zipper off of your helmet, you have to be a little careful. Positioning your helmet to be zipped inside can (if you are not careful) cause the zipper to contact your helmet (I have practiced on my cheap helmet) and when you zip, you need to lift a little, but this is NOT a big problem.
Overall, if you know these things, I do recommend it. The "bang for the buck" is not high (and this is weird because I have gotten more use for the money out of my Kriega stash, than virtually anything else). It is very cool, lightweight, and seems protective. How it holds up remains to be seen. But, when not in use, it packs away very nicely. Very unique.

Jose C asked:Will this bag fold up small enough to fit inside the rear seat storage on an R6 (if I take the took kit out)?Mar 29, 2015
Ian F:Mmm, I don't know the size of the R6's rear storage, but the size of the folded helmet skin is like a larger hand fist. Maybe if you try your fist in there you'll figure it out. I think it's best to always carry your toolbag in case you face any problem on the road. I always carry it in my backpack. Let me suggest one, or at least, a hip bag for it.Mar 29, 2015
