    You get what you pay for

    By JamesofSacramento

    Comments about Skid Lid Original Solid Half Helmet:

    Pretty basic, surprisingly heavy and bulky. Makes you look like a dork. I'm using this strictly as a DOT approved backup.

    Service and delivery comments:

    CHEAP

    DOT Skid Lid

    By wnyrider

    from Buffalo NY

    Pros

    • Fits Snug

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Everyday Riding

      Comments about Skid Lid Original Solid Half Helmet:

      Same as all the other DOT helmets, thick padding not like the skid lids of before, hate helmets anyway, sit high on your skull like all the DOT padded helmets. Other wise it's legal and low cost is OK.

      Comments about Skid Lid Original Solid Half Helmet:

      If you're like me and hate wearing a helmet, this is about the best DOT helmet you can get. It is light and not too big (all DOT helmets look mushroomy to me). To the reviewer who commented that there is an extra 5 inches of strap that can't be secured, do what I did. I put a small piece of 3M lock tape (like what you use to hold your toll pass to your car window) and it takes care of that problem just fine.

        Comments about Skid Lid Original Solid Half Helmet:

        I bought the chrome version on sale for [$] and it's worth every penny. The sizing chart matched my head to a T. During my commute, I'm a full-face kind of guy. But if I'm running an errand around town (<35mph), my chrome skid lid is coming with me!

            Thanks for your question! Please let us know your fitted hat sizing or head measurement in inches or centimeters and we can assist you in the sizing of this helmet. You would take this measurement right above eyebrow level.
