I wear a full face motorcycle helmet. It's a TMS black and red helmet. They go on ebay for 40$. Not bad, has 2 visors. One clear, and one shade. I just use it for safety, people laugh, i don't care.

My top price I am willing to pay just went up to about $75.00.
Canadian Tire has a motorcycle cop style 3/4 helmet, and one of the boxes somewhere out there may have my name on it.
It's called 'copper'
Found It!

I use a full face MC helmet. I do feel safe wearing it but, it does muffle the sounds around you and I feel I do not have good side view and find my self only able to watch directly in front of me. If I turn to look to my left i really gotta turn to see and have almost hit things doing so. I'd say its kind of a win loss. More win because of safety.

I tried that helmet I linked to, it was the display model. It had very slight play on my head, about 5mm, or about ......<--- that much on one side, vice versa.

Too much?

I assume no play is ideal.

You want it fairly snug and they do loosen up after a short time. Better snug than sloppy.

My opinion after wearing a fullface for a week... Get mirrors and don't rubberneck. Feel super safe and comfortable.
