    well, i've wanted this helmet for a long time... i finally bought a new drz400sm which has been my naughty want for many years... well since i got the bike i always wanted, i figure why not upgrade the old trekker helmet to the variant... well i love it except for a couple things... first, the skirt around the bottom pushes really hard against my sides of my neck... it almost chokes me... kind of like when you stop the blood to your head to pass out... makes me feel very uneasy... i am not a steak neck either... i have a 17" neck, and i bought the xl... i have a 24" head... the rest of the helmet fit me as it should and it was wonderful... but the choking neck i couldn't live with... it broke my heart... but the other things that made it a little easier to send back is the fact that my fox main pro goggle CAN NOT fit... the padding in the helmet keeps the goggles so far away from my face it was crazy... (during the summer i like to remove the shield on my fly trekker helmet and run goggles, i get much better air flow and don't feel like i am breathing my exhale. hahaha) i also like to take the sun visor off and rock it that way for longer trips... easier on the neck and shoulders... the visor does not come off for riding purposes on the icon.... those 2 things alone is a no good for me... also, when you open the shield, your finger rubs the shield seal gasket pretty hard... i can see this becoming a problem over the long term.... some of the fitment of the front mouth surround were not attached and you could see light though it... i tried pushing it in and finessing it some, but it just kept bubbling out.... besides glue or an epoxy, it was not gonna be fixed.... so all in all, besides the head shape fitting me better, and me loving the "BUG" look of the helmet... it was a flop for me in every other field... sad, i was in total lust of the helmet.... i went with an AGV ax-8 evo DS instead and don't regret it one bit...
