It's funny how, at the Fleet review, when it started to pelt down and we put on our helmets, everyone started obeying our requests without arguing!

I find the full face visor the most versatile .I do find it good protection but find it very drafty around the ears when going over 50 mph

Gecko helmets

I have open one and full-face models. I have tested all visor types and several additional gear. My personal choise is full-face helmet with 50% tinted visor. I't great for every use I drive, nighttime operations I lift it up since speed is then slower and tinted shade is not a problem. I have tested 20% tinted visor also, but personally find 50% version better. And don't forget to order heavy-duty storage bag with your helmet, it's great for helmet storage.

See pictures about my drivegear (person with black lifejacket)

Blue with half visor is my choice. Half allows you to use the radio, keeps you dry, doesn't mist up. If you have a jacket with a nice high collar it'll come most of the way up your face anyway.
As for tinted visor, just wear sunglasses underneith!
