Icon Classic Face Shield
Good Idea Poor Execution
I got this to replace my old visor. I bought the RST Blue Mirror and will say I regret the purchase. I thought the blue would go well with my blue bike but it doesn't. The shield is very sensitive to scratches unlike my old one. The blue is very faint and doesn't really look like I expected it to. Other reviews have mentioned a mirroring effect on the inside which I will agree 100% with. At first it was very disconcerting but eventually you get used to it. I plan to buy a new one but I definitely will not choose the Blue Mirror.

Works as advertized
Bought this to replace the original shield which was scratched from a few years of use. Easy to see through, not too dark but still good in bright sunlight.
My face reflects on the inside of the shield, but it's not entirely distracting during riding, just noticeable.

This shield is amazing, purchased the green one to go with my Icon Mainframe Helmet. The shield visibility is great during daytime and nighttime, you cannot go wrong with Icon products.

Icon Classic Face Shield
I got the mirror-type reflective shield. Looks great! Noticed halos around lights at night, which I don't think is caused by fogging. But this will probably go away after I was it with some warm water. I got this as a replacement for an identical face shield, and the difference is huge! So clear and nice! Over time the reflective paint will strip away though, and the reflective faceshield will turn into the normal shaded faceshield. Although we are talking about couple years of daily use, and many-many times of washing the shield from bugs and road grime.

Good product but not perfect.
I purchased the mirrored shield and the coating has held up very well. The shield works well in all types of light and makes it much more enjoyable riding on very bright days.
My only complaint is that when the sun is at about 10 or 2 o'clock I can see my face reflected as if the mirrored side was facing in. Besides being distracting it blocks my view.

these faceshields are the best, i purchased the mirrored tint faceshield, it protects your eyes from the sun and you can see at night, plus no one can see your face, only downfall its a little on the high side at $40.00 so if you drop your helmet and crack the faceshield thats $40.00 down the drain

OK, but could be darker...
This shield is optically excellent, and we could not see any defects at all. It is very easy to install and remove. It's thickness is average at best, so it is a bit flimsy. Not greatly so, but it's not as stiff as some other makes that we own. Our only mild gripe is that the dark smoke version we ordered could have been darker. Of all our other dark smoke shields we have, this shield has the least amount of tint. Overall, it's OK for the price, but we feel that it could have been darker. Therefore we will rate it average at best.
