We bought this helmet for our son. It was his first helmet, and he needed it to ride on my motorcycle. Your staff was awesome in helping us get the right one for him.

Bairdmj

Good helmet. The ear flaps come down a little farther than I would prefer, but the helmet is really comfortable.

erictulod14

Helmet is very cool looking. And little bit bigger than expected. But still being put to good use!

tainge

The helmet is more bulky than I had anticipated.

kevjur

This helmet is great, fits excellent, and relatively low profile for being D.O.T approved. The paint on it is great too, bugs don't seem to stick to it. Highly recommended ! Great price and ultra-quick shipping !

niecie1355

fastest delivery I ever got from anyone. Love it.

Keeferes

Fits great, and chin straps aren't to unbearable for a brain bucket. Downside is same as all half shells. Gives the mushroom head look for sure on size small.

Schindler79

Love it

fnfal1@yahoo.com

Sizing was on the small size. Also, straps were sewn unevenly on the sides ("V" straps). One side was very notably longer than the other.

rwinkle

Product ordered was of good quality. Ordering was extremely easy. Product shipped and received in great time. I had to return though because of incorrect size. My error. Return process was very easy and completed in timely manner. I would recommend using J &P Cycles to anyone. Thanks for the great service.

spapp

Nice helmet. Sits a little high for my liking, but is well made and a good investment for the price.

Kshayes59@yahoo.com

Will be exchanging size chart measured small and is too small

sirimboyd

Fits just right

harley0127

Was hoping for a bit smaller profile helmet and this one turned out bigger than I expected.

gsxrdart@hotmail.com

Cool helmet. No snap to secure excess strap though. And still feels a little bulky to me.

Cmartinsport

Good product for the money. Arrived in a flash!

amonsma

This is as close as you can get to a novelty helmet with it being DOT approved. Light weight. Very comfortable.

mikekolb

Returned. Nice helmet, good quality but too much of a mushroom head for my liking.

kmheck87

Too big, traded it in for size smaller

mjstott

Skid Lid flat black helmet finish looks great and is comfortable. This is the first half helmet I've worn (previous sport bike rider). Only complaint I have is the mushroom-like appearance when wearing. Small price to pay though for a DOT helmet.

jimbo1965

Overall I like the helmet. Much lighter than most half helmets. Comfortable but you still have the mushroom effect. Rather be safe than look cool...would buy again.

supermankuhns

Bought it because I needed a helmet quickly and wanted something cheap. Wasn't thrilled with the fit. When on the highway strap whistled in my ear very loudly. Was very annoying!

jamesjm

Comfortable fit but big mushroom. I may just have an odd shaped head though.

KeithFBA

Fits ok...does not sit as low as I expected it would. I like the flat black finish. Thanks for the great service!

jerseymech

Decent second helmet for the price.

DonBean59

Fits good.

sommie

great price and prompt shipping!

joe71652

Helmet fits as described but the chin strap fits uncomfortably tight on the throat. Kinda thick but to be expected of a DOT helmet

BoBC1047

As advertised; good value for the price. No regrets...

mouser58

Still looks like mushroom, but due to good price, I'll keep it for others to ride with me...

deep_6diver

Just as expected

mustang376

great product highly recommend for those who want style and function

catfishmike

Great fit, great price you got to love the old school look.

SPC4SCOTT

great helmet great fit great price. Only problem was it was shipped so fast I didn't have a chance to tell the ol lady that I had ordered it.

Blackthorn762

Great helmet for the money. Like all other DOT rated half/beanie helmets it still looks like a bit of a mushroom...but hey, better to look like a mushroom than risk cracking a skull even as thick as mine!

Bowhunter42

Nice price , good fit

chiefflippin

Good quality & fit. It was everything I expected.

bmzrx

I have been dealing with J&P for nearly 10 years. i would have to say that I am 100% satisfied with the selection of parts and service offered by this fine company. The few times that I have had to return itmes (more my fault than theirs) they have always been very courtious and promp with replacements or refunds. Needless to say, I will continue to do business with J&P in the future. Thanks Bob Murray Houston, TX

gates144@comcast.net

a great buy @ 39.95

65nitemare

Looks and fits great. Small as you can get without being a novelty helmet.

landishartranft

Good helmet. Fits good and very comfortable.

teschmitt

Great price for exactly what I wanted.

kelandadkins

Very bulkly fit

rockchopper86

Nice helmet at a good price. Definitely bulkier then I thought it would be though.

Brofactor

Looks great and good fit

CDB22

Nice helmet. Looks great.

NCRaven1

Excellent price. A bit bigger profile than I hoped, but you don't get much smaller with a DOT compliant helmet. Overall, very pleased.

AzDude

Really liked the look of this helmet. Until a couple of weeks went by and fingerprints started to show on the side of the helmet. I tried to remove them, but it turns out there was a hand print of adhesive under the paint. poor quality control when you paint over a layer of adhesive in the shape of a handprint.

jeff.wangsgaard

Great fit and great style

mustang376

great product nice style and function

KrisBlacksteel

First order made by J & P with this helmet, comfortable but at high speed it requires a visor, otherwise nothing to say thank you ... kris liege belgium

dudleyshall

Love the helmet it's light and comfortable I would recommend it to any rider

cdweller

I have not yet received the item purchased... This may be due to being shipped to Australia. I am looking forward to receiving this item, and will advise when it arrives..

angmicc79

Basic is still the best. Can't go wrong for the price. great helmet, even better price.

Thunde~Struck

Great comfortable fit for my big head.

Danmc1973

Great helmet.

treyh1998

I love the helmet. It's not bulky and I love the flat black look.

jimg1954

nice fit but had to send it back to get a bigger size

asianbaloo

Pictures showed it to be less "mushroom head" style. But for the money, its good for the spare or passengers.

giampaolo

its a nice helmet is not the thinnest d.o.t helmet out there i have one or two pulmers helmets and there alot thinner then these but it looks ok

ernestcushman

Good fitting helmet. Fast shipping as always.

sunstateturk

Good helmet for the money. There are lighter ones so if you have neck problems not recommended. Otherwise very tough and good looking.

nelswestvold@gmail.com

Very fast shipping. Easy to return

Jake Mross

Great fit and as promised still gives dot mushroom effects

Helmet Sizing Tips

  • For an accurate head measurement, wrap the measuring tape horizontally around your head about 1" above your eyebrows.
  • Your helmet should fit snugly. Keep the measuring tape comfortably tight in order to achieve the best results.
  • For precise results, measure two or three times. If you get different measurements, take the largest one.
  • If your head measurement falls between two different sizes on the helmet sizing chart, choose the smaller helmet size.
