Kryptonite Retractable Cable Lock
Does the job
This lock is pretty big, about the size of my palm. But, it does the job. The cable is long enough for me to put it through an arm of my jacket, through my helmet, and around a bar on my bike. The combo is easy to set, and the attached light is a handy feature. The cable is thin but still a good deterrent. The size of it keeps me from a resounding recommendation, but if you would put this in a bag while riding that won't be a concern.

I bought this so I could have a compact lock for my helmet and jacket and it works great. I wish the cable was a little longer but the size is compact and works great.

Great little lock for the money. I don't have any racks on my Victory so the cable system works well to lock my jackets to the handlebars so I don't need to carry it everywhere. Small enough to fit in the jacket pocket. As always, RevZilla service is second to none.

Bigger than you imagine
A little bigger than it appears on the photos, but pretty useful to lock the helmet on the bike, you wouldn't use it to lock your bike thought.
Comes with a little flashlight that can be handy.

Nothing fancy. works well. a bit bulkier than I had expected. nice build though and works like a charm. Comes with a led light. well thought/nice add-on

It's a little bigger than I expected but it gets the job done. I'm pretty much the only one who locks my helmet but this fits in my little rear compartment so why not use it?

An excellent helmet and tank bag lock. Not good for much else.
While it's remarkably lightweight and very convenient, it's a deterrent at best. It's not something you'd use to lock your bike with.(it's too short for that anyways)
It can be cut if someone had a decent pair of wire cutters on them. But that can probably be said for any helmet lock.
It's vinyl coating is nice. I never have to worry about damaging anything with it. And it comes with a detachable LED light. A nice little feature that I probably will never use. But it's cool to have.

Good quality light weight accessory lock
I've been using this lock for several weeks now to lock up my helmet (Nolan N104). Overall I am quite pleased with it. It uses a small cable which is more of a deterrent than anything else, but it make it easy to weave under the handlebars where the space is pretty tight. The ability to set your own combination is pretty nice as well, although I'm guessing that this is a common feature in most combination locks. The only thing that I am not really thrilled about is minor and really just something that personally I would change if I could. You cannot insert the cable into the lock body when it is locked (i.e. combination not set to open), which is a minor thing, but one that would make locking up a bit faster as I do not store the lock unlocked. Other than that minor thing, I'm happy with it so far. I actually plan on getting another one to lock up my jacket as well.
