Has anyone polarized their helmet visor?

Just seeing if anyone has used polarized film to wrap their visors. Would be neat to do a green color on my clear visor for my new AGV corsa Turtle Rossi helmet

Some LCD dash screens don't look good viewed through polarizers.

They sell polarized visors. As volfy mentioned, your LCD screen does look funny sometimes depending on the sun and angle. I like them though. I wear polarized sunglasses so I'm used to it. They take away a lot of glares.

None of the LCD screens I've ever seen through my Oakleys have ever been visible. Good point Volfy

There would usually be a vertical line on my screen. It would move with my head movement.

Some higher quality polrized lenses work better with less problems with lcd screens.

cheap chineese okley lenses not really polarized

Two polarized lenses (when stacked on top of one onother) will let no light through as you rotate one 90 degrees to the other.

And yes, LCD screens take on a oil on water look but it's not that bad.
