Helmet wind blocker

http://www.webbikeworld.com/r2/windj...nd-blocker.htm

I've been thinking about picking one of these up. I hate when dirt gets in my eyes on the road, and even bugs hitting my chest and going up into my helmet. Has anyone used one of these? I've been wanting to get some riding glasses as well which will help with keeping stuff out of my eyes but I think this may help reduce all the wind noise as well as keep my face warm because my nose runs and my eyes water a lot in the cold.

you should have picked up some riding glasses at the Rally. i got the same $25 pair that D has for $12. i love that they are padded, my regular sunglasses hurt after a few minutes.

Where did he get his BTW? Cycle gear? Glasses always seem to hurt in helmets but I REALLY liked the ones that D has

wal-mart has some riding glasses back in the small motorcycle area. have the padding around the lenses to keep the wind from coming around.

I would like to try the windblocker thingee also, maybe helps to keep noise down so i can listen to my radio/mp3 etc.
later

I ordered one from the UK. It works great with one disadvantage. It tends to want to separate my ears from my head when I put on or take off my helmet. You can install and remove it easy. I use it mostly for long rides. It would be less constricting if the material was more flexible, but then again, that might defeat its purpose.
