Re: Which Helmet Shield???
The respro mask has a small plastic clip, kind of like the old swimmer's nose clips, attached to the mask that goes over your nose. doesn't pinch as much as the swimmer's clips but it seals the mask just below the bridge of your nose.
It's hard to describe, but the helmet's two lower vents still blow air on the outside of the respro mask which comes up and through the face shield area. I can close these on a real cold day (like this past Friday) and it seals completely. It doesn't blow directly into my eyes and I like the extra outside airflow, I feel a bit claustrophobic when I close the vents without that air.
The only thing I'd like to be able to do is get the "wings" to fasten between the cheek pads and the helmet instead of velcro'd to the cheek pads. Once you get it fitted right though, it works like a charm.
One other thing I noticed Friday is that the warm air trapped between your mouth and the mask keeps your nose and chin from freezing.
Can you tell that I like this thing? I can't stop rambling...
