Nice quality

My wife got this and it is very nice quality and well made...I am too vain to use one but must admit it is well worth having for touring ,to the point even I am admitting the function may beat out my vanity....on a recent ride I was some distance behind her when she was wearing the florescent yellow version and I must admit it is not as visible as you would assume...it definatly is not bad to have the bright color but I just notice that since brim is so horizontal that its definatly not as visible from a distance as you would assume so get whatever color you want and just get a bright helmet and wear yellow vest...she has no issue using her helmet mirror and the practical purpose of blocking the sun works great..it extends out far enough to totally protect you from all but very low angle sun positions......she uses a regular roadbike helmet and it locked on tight and has stayed put well...the ability to adjust brim up and down via velcro strap helps to adjust it for a more leaned over sportbike ride angle so the brim doesn't block view...I was impressed with the brim quality,it feels tough and strong for what I incorrectly assumed would be floppy foam..its pretty stiff actually and doesnt really flap from what I have seen, tho she said she feels she like the "flying nun" at times and I admit I can see the similarity, but since it does its job so well then who cares...you do need to cut the small white tag off(the typical tag that says 100% nylon/wash instructions) as it will flap and buzz as you ride....overall, for touring I think it is great and I must admit I may end up with one when I accept that protection from sunburn and skin cancer are more important then my vanity...

Who should buy this: People who like to ride their bike comfortably and be easily seen Who should not buy this: If you listen to fashion tips from people who own shoes they can't walk in and think wearing spandex is the height of fashion. I have owned this for 2 years now. I bought it for the sun (which it does block very well) and to have a brim while riding at night to shield car headlights (which it also does well). The set up took some fiddling to make it so the brim wouldn't fly off the helmet, but is now firmly in place and I haven't had any issues . I used a bit of string to tie it to some vents in my helmet in the beginning so that if did fly off, I wouldn't have to stop and turn around in the event that it did. I keep the string on because it is large and sometimes gets caught on stuff while walking around and can pop off (but not while riding). What I was not expecting was how well it blocks the rain from my eyes and how much people notice me while wearing it. Everyone can agree that a rain block would be a welcome feature, but being noticed took some time to get used to. I paired this brim to a florescent yellow helmet, and it is VERY noticeable. Fellow cyclists and pedestrians look at me either with smiles, or I might get a comment from a road biker on my fashion sense (both positive, neutral, and derisive). Drivers can't miss me, as I see their eyes following me -- it is not ordinary looking and it is so bright. Overall, this accessory is a huge win. It is highlight functional and highly visible. And for those who think it looks silly -- it's better to look like an idiot while riding than not be seen!

Keeps the Sun Out

I spent 30 minutes trying to get it to stay on my helmet. Then I realized I was doing it backwards! Once I turned it around, I was able to secure it to the helmet quickly and easily. I have an extra large helmet to fit my big head, but the size was not a problem. It fits fine and feels like it would take a hurricane to get it off. Best of all, it keeps the sun off my face. Very happy with my purchase.

Great stuff

Some people may not see this as the most stylish bike product. That's ok.s It does such a great job that you won't care. Trust me. Plus, it doesn't look quite as silly as you think in person. I bike in the blazing summer sun with 95 degree temps and high humidity. As soon as I got this, I could instantly tell the difference. It is like knocking 10 degrees off the temperature. You can't appreciate the effects of taking 360-degree shade with you all the time until you try it. Also, the hat directs the wind down over my kneck. SOOOOOOO much better. Every friend I've ridden with who has seen it in use is now getting one. I had some concerns when I bought this. Would it fit my helmet well? Would it blow off, act like a sail, etc? After 6 weeks of heavy use, the answers are that none of my concerns were warranted. It goes on and off your helmet in no time. Once it is on, you really don't notice it. I tilt the brim on the front up, and it doesn't obstruct my view at all. It is surprisingly rock-solid in a wind. I have done descents on bumpy gravel, into a wind, at around 45 mph and although I can feel the wind on the hat, it doesn't move at all. Of course, at that speed, you are aware of it, but it is not a bad thing. Once, in a heavy side-wind, it was not as convenient, but I was still glad to have it. Plus, in the last six weeks, I have had no sunburns, haven't had to use sunscreen on my kneck, ears, and face, etc. I have also worn it in two downpours. It is not rainproof (it doesn't cover the center of your helmet after all), but it kept all the water off my eyes. When I got it, I thought it seemed a bit expensive. Now? Worth it.

Great shade

Provides great shade, receive lots of compliments but acts like a sail in any wind created while riding. This causes my helmet to constantly shift slightly, rendering my mirror ineffective and in need of unending adjustments. I'm not able to put helmet on any tighter.
