Default Feedback on these open face helmets

Was looking for positive feedback on any of these open face (Cafe Racing)
Helmets, I am thinking of carring one of these lines
Davida V3 or some show Davida93
Hedon
Bell Custom 500

All or very pricey, but almost all leather padding, and some lined in Leather

Default Bell

I have been wearing the Bell custom for years. It was $99 for flat black. A little more fore colors.😎

Been using the bell for quite a while now. Older models seemed to sit lower on top of the head. Just got a new one a few days ago and while the sides seem a bit tighter to the head the top seems to stick up taller. Still a nice helmet for sure. "Custom" paint is good quality as is the overall fit and finish. No ventsso there's not much airflow into the lid but..... Its a trade off for a good looking lid. No leather inside the helmet, outer rim of the padding looks leather like but is some kind of thin vynal. I'd buy another.

I own two Bell Custom 500's and love them. Light weight and very comfortable. I like the vintage look. A good value for the money. I wait until they change the graphics and you can find some killer deals on last years versions.

I see, they are now making the Bell Custom 500 in Carbonfiber.... Another plus, But Hedon has a cool Carbon fiber also.
thanks Cosmic

UPFlying, that is what I wear also UpFlying, it's a pain to put on, I sometimes unsnap the padding as I place it on my head, and have to take it back off to fix that. Sound wise it has no wind noises at all.And yes very cool
