I bought this helmet with low expectations and they were met. The stealth Stars and Stripes graphics are a decal not more than I expected. The shell and padding are not what I'd use on long tours (I ride an Ultra Classic) for safety and comfort. That being said, I like the looks and so do others, I met a rider who purchased the same helmet but with the red white and blue and even he said the stealth flag looks much better. The "AFX" decal on the front peels off easily and looks much better without it. After removing the front sticker I polished and waxed the helmet for extra glossy shine and so far it hasn't harmed the paint or stealth flag decal. I recommend this helmet only for when you're riding with the 'round-the-block crew for short rides only and that's it. This helmet is about average.

Buying online can be a challenge regarding proper fit. Unlike other half helmets I tried the AFX actually uses your head size. Others ran smaller than your measured head size making it a guess. Only problem I see with this helmet is the drop down shades are extremely tight if you wear glasses otherwise it’s a good helmet.
Also, great job for customer service I spoke with when helping me pick this helmet.
I wore the helmet for four hours one way; no problem and no sore neck. The helmet is light and comfortable. I have a headset and the mic is a little short due to wear it can be clamped because of the visor mounts. Other than that don't hesitate. Had compliments on the helmet.
Caught in the rain and used the visor which protected the sunglasses; was able to see much better. The smoked visor also helped in the morning sun while traveling East.
Helmet size was true to measurements.
