I would be worried that the bubble shaped visor would be hard to see through. I like the idea of the jet goggles best though. Where do you find them though? Can they be found in motorcycle shops?

Does it not distort your view a bit? I guess a good one wouldn't do that.

Only problem with the goggle, is that you can't really wear those with a full face helmet, and full face is the safest choice.

full face over everything, rather not have anything exposed and vulnerable

It's so tempting to take short cuts when it comes to safety because on 98% of trips you won't crash, but the one time you do, you'll be so glad that you are wearing the proper gear.

sometimes it may be when you least expect it, like some idiot in a cage that swerves into you.

Do you know who sells this flip shield or what brand is it? It looks so badass, and I looked for one like it all over the net
