Dowco Helmet Bag
I share a bike for half a year with my son who lives 900 miles away. I got this bag to carry my helmet on the plane when I flew to pick it up, and again after I took it back. It rolls up nice and small for packing, and works great for carrying the helmet. Other reviews complained that the zipper can touch the helmet, but I have the thin bag that came with my helmet, so I put it in that, first. Protection is good for the plane. If the helmet doesn't fit in the overhead, I put it between my feet. It doesn't fit under the seat in front of me, but the flight attendants don't seem to mind.

Good Helmet Protection for Low $
For the price, it does the job. No bells and whistles, just a helmet bag. One handy feature is the small slot on the bottom of the bag for a security cable. Some extra room inside for a towel or shirt.
CON - these attention-to-detail things always bug me. In this case, there's no protective barrier between the zipper and the helmet when the bag is zipped up. The entire bag is lined with soft, protective material - but they leave the zipper exposed to the helmet and shield surface? It is a potential scratching hazard, so make sure to use an additional cloth helmet bag, t-shirt, towel, etc. (which I always carry anyway). I'll probably have something sewn in, easy job.
That said, I'm happy with the bag and it does offer some added protection and a convenient carry handle.

Perfect for my need.
I needed a bag to travel with my helmet on a commercial flight. This bag was perfect. It kept it protected in the overhead compartment but was easy to carry around the airport. I even carried it with me in my non motorcycle type backpack on my rides so when off the bike I could put the helmet in it, which made it easier to carry or put down anywhere. The floor, on the sand or under a chair or table in restaurants.
PS: I'm not a rider but was a passenger on a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.

Nice bag except for zipper
This lightweight bag is lined with a nice faux shearling material, which protects the helmet from slight bumps. Unfortunately the zipper doesn't not have a flap of sorts to prevent contact with the helmet... in my case it has scratched my sun shield in a couple of places. Have resorted to putting the helmet in an old t-shirt before bagging it up.

good, decent, reasonably priced helmet bag
I purchased this for its price, size and from the reviews. I have only had it a few weeks now so that's why I gave it a "4" for performance, durability & finish. Depending on how it lasts I may change my rating for it.
I recently purchased a new Arai Vector 2 helmet (love it) and wanted to have a bag to protect it. While this bag is not perfect it will do the job.
The only things I wish were different are the handles and the zipper.
The zipper does not seem protected on the inside therefore rests on the visor. In my opinion can cause scratches. I find putting a microfiber towel over the visor helps to protect and also I have it to wipe the helmet should it need to be cleaned.
