Default best non-dot helmet

looking for a non dot helmet that isnt so tiny, what im saying is one that will come down to my eyebrows and down to my ears instead of sitting way up to, i just like the weight of these helmets and since we have a helmet law in alabama, this is best i can do, but love to ****** it off when i go to florida, also thinking about a biltwell 3/4 helmet, unless i cant find either of them dot approved that dont weight or cost a ton

They have one called Trooper II. It's a duplicate of a U.S. Military Helmet. I looks like it would fit the bill.

I recently got a 3/4 from Daytona Helmets for $60 and it's pretty good for a DOT approved helmet as far as not being such a mushroom on your head. The Builtwells are pretty nice for a novelty helmet, very light, comfy and they have some cool old school metal flake colors. Had a guy wreck in our group with one and it definitely helped him, by no means is it as safe as a DOT but it's better than one of those skid lid beanie types and sits pretty low on your head.

This will fit the bill and the one I use, with visor removed. Yes, it comes down to the eyebrow and just above the ear.

Click the image to open in full size.No helmet laws in florida... however the woman wanted me to wear a helmet... if I HAVE to wear one to shut her up... its not going to be just ANY helmet... so I wear this in summer months....


It has both a clear and smoked flip down visor... quite a few double takes at stoplights.

For winter riding I go with this
