Thumbs up Bell Helmets "Broozer"

I bought this helmet a year and a half ago. It's fairly light, around 3.2lbs. It came with a smoked shield and a "safety rated" clear shield. The visor flips up into the helmet. The chinbar is removable making a 3/4 helmet. Because the chinbar is latched and removable, it is DOT, Snell and ECE rated for safety.
Pros : Large field of vision, Lightweight, Doesn't look oversized (smaller dimensions) 2 visors, comes in 4-5 different graphics, quick release chin strap buckle. $100-$250 USD range.
Cons: Comes with 2 fixed open vents in chinbar (I put duct tape over these vents). The chin bar is awkward to carry or pack when you don't use it, all the time. No rear exit vents.
All in all, I like this helmet. Although there are no rear vents, the impact "styrofoam" has finger wide grooves, running from the "forehead" area, up and over the top of the head and down the back of the helmet. It does a good job of keeping your head cool. The features I like the best are the large field of vision and the light weight.
