Question What "Chin Skirt" will work with my Suomy SpecR1

Suggestions please?

Speaking of which, is there anything that attaches securely to the bottom of the helmet that covers your neck? that would be awesome.

Most of the balaclavas extend down the neck, there's also the masks that do too. I keep everything from the plain mask to a full balaclava here at the shop this time of year.

I was just thinking about this cause the chin skirt on my Shoei doesn't do a whole lot.

I was gonna get just the regular chin curtain for my RF-1000, but figured this would probably be better....but if this is true, I might end up just going with the Shoei curtain.

I'm curious as to how it would fit in the Soumy. For that price I'll just buy it, thanks.

I had a similar issue with one of those neoprene "halo" reflective bands, so I can see this as being an issue. That band would always end up on my neck if I was going fast or it was windy.

Patrick, if I lived on the north side I'd be by your place yesterday. I also wear a wool balacava, The real issue is my eyes/eye fatigue, the cold wind on my eyes makes them water, and it gets hard to see

I had a scarf that used to snag on all the velcro. Finally had my girl just roll it around twice and sew it together. Now i just slide it over my head and it works awesome. Just an idea for you to try.
