I have a full face helmet for highway riding and I realize I should wear it around town, too, but it's a b*tch to get on and off...esp. off - 'bout takes my ears off, but sure does fit and feel good when it's on.
Around town I've just been wearing a baseball cap and going for it. Now that it's colder - 30s and 40s - the wind coming over the windshield is freezing my sinuses and it's very uncomfortable and after a while painful.
I do wear wrap around sunglasses to protect my eyes but I'd like more protection.
I'd like to find an in-expensive lightweight helmet that has a flip up face shield and is quick and easy to put on and take off.
I had one years ago that I used when flying ultralight airplanes but the wind came around the edges of the face shield and was aggravating. It's been 15 years and don't remember the exact area, but I'd like to avoid that kind of situation if I can.
Any ideas out there ??
