Clear shield only while wearing sunglasses during the day. At night I swap to clear racquetball glasses so I can open my visor while riding day or night.

The suns heat gain through the clear shield on the GT is quite noticeable. When you lower the tinted inner shield it's as cool as the other side of the pillow..

You reduce some of the radiant heat transfer, but not as much as with a tinted shield.

True, but the difference between the GT and my X11 using a tinted, reflective shield isn't noticeable to my handsome, yet rugged face.

So I've been using the spare helmet bag but with a bunch of stuff getting tossed around I'm kinda worried.
I think a firm shaped bag might be a better solution.
