Bell Revolver Evo (the one with the upgraded seals)

It is a non-dorky looking modular helmet with a very easy to use pop down sunglasses that aren't too dark but get the job done.

And they have the "snowmobile helmet option" You can get either the double lense or the double lense with electric element option, breath box, and an amber sunglasses replacement. I opted for the electric visor, Still waiting for a cold day to test it out.

The helmet itself is pretty comfortable, Wore it on my 1000+ mile off road rally in canada and a ride from virginia to manhatten around ny, and back ride. and a few local rides. My only complaint, as with any modular, is wind noise. Headphones that go into my ear help quite a bit with that problem though. The second complaint would be that every now and then the helmet will try to lift off over 110mph.

All and all it is a great all around helmet for me and what I use it for. Low speed and around town, I drop the sunglasses down and flip the face shield up for better airflow and to talk to buddies at the red lights. At speed on the highway I can leave the faceshield up without it ripping my headoff. The price is awesome (

Bought a Noland N04 right before a 4,500+ mile ride, great helmet, good venting, or closed and this thing is very quiet.
Rode with in temps from 98F in Texas down to 30F in Colorado with a neck warmer and was very comfortable.
Modular, big viewing with pinlock, weight was less than I expected.

Pick your favorite color, wear it under your loosest fitting helmet.

All I do is get a few hardhat liners every fall, wear them under my helmet when riding and under my hardhat at work. Normally by spring they are shot, either catching them on fire welding or past the point of washing.

YMMV, and they seem to last a lot longer if you don't work construction.
