What's Your Favorite Helmet?

Retro looking helmets are in right now. I found this one I wouldn't mind owning:

I've got a Draxtar P-104 that I enjoy for moderate speed riding. There's a good bit of aero lift above 70mph but it's great on the back roads. The earcups make it quieter than many full face helmets I've worn. It comes with a clear and smoke tinted shield. The shell began life as a Chinese fighter jet helmet.

Nolan n43/n44, love the extra large viewport which rivals or exceeds many 3/4 helmets but has an internal removable chinbar for full face protection. http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/nolan-n44-helmet

HJC IS-16 http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...6-solid-helmet. I bought it for protection (both crash and wind) not for looks. I like comfort, and if I go down on my face, I'd like it to still look the same. Other than a dirt helmet, this is my only helmet at the moment.

favourite helmet

I have many helmets, including several flip-ups and modular designs e.g. HJC IS Max HJC IS-Multi and Nolan N43 Air but my favourite of all is the Shark Evoline (series 2 and 3) I have the two... one I use in NZ when I'm home, and the other in mainland China...

My favorite helmet is the Arai classic that saved my life October 27, 2013 after being hit in an intersection. Choose your helmet wisely.

I used a HJC SymaxII for a couple of years, then found the AFX FX-50. Based on this review http://www.webbikeworld.com/r2/motor...met/afx-fx-50/
I bought it and love it. My son was hit on his scooter by a guy running a red light, his AFXFX-50 saved his head, 4" crack in the back of the helmet and until he saw it, he didn't think he had even hit his head.
I ride in the cold with a pull over that has neoprene on the lower part of the face to keep the wind off and it doesn't fog up like other helmets. I got so used to flip down sunshades that I hate riding with sunglasses.

Well, I'd imagine they get them for free. But, if they weren't comfortable, I suppose they'd wear something else. But, who says they both didn't get them custom fitted? Anyway, I like the Arai XD series, a lot. I think it's money well spent.
