Interesting. I was under the impression these are the exact same helmets, made by another company but branded for AFX and Fly, except for the ratchet versus d-rings.

I purchased the AFX helmet and like it a lot. It’s loud though, at least I think so, and especially if there is much cross wind. I don’t wear glasses. It seems to flow a LOT of air and in fact I get a lot of air across my eyes, even with the vents closed. Not enough they dry out, but still seems like a lot across my face and eyes. I think it’s to keep the lens from fogging, which it seems to do well. I bought a large and it’s pretty close to 3.5+ lbs (I weighed it).

It fits well and the cheek pads were annoying at first, but seem to fit perfectly after a couple weeks or so.
