I chose the light smoke tint to give my eyes moderate protection but did not want to lose visibility should I get caught out too late. Product is as stated, "light smoke." The tint itself offers very light eye protection from the sun. However, it is still better than having no tint at all. I believe most users may find it too light.

Bell Vortex Siege Helmet
Bell Vortex Siege Helmet The new Bell Vortex comes in a variety of graphics all of which will get you noticed on the street. The Siege Helmet comes in a black, white and silver color pallet that sports thunderbolts and a Bell coat of arms on the side. This style is also available in a blue and a red version. In addition to the full gloss coverage there is reflectivity in the paint which adds depth to the graphics. Performance features on this helmet borrow heavily from the Bell Star helmet providing function you don't always see in a helmet at this price point. This is solid everyday helmet that because of it's Snell M2010 rating can also hold up to some track usage. Features Velocity Flow Ventilation system with FlowAdjust for maximum stability and temperature control with minimal noise and buffeting Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell Contour cheek pads (by means of stacked foam, not hand cut) Removable and washable, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner Padded Wind collar to drastically reduce wind/road noise Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers ClickRelease for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Weight 1600g Certification Snell M2010, DOT Comes with clear faceshield
Overall, this helmet is very comfortable. However, because of the placement of the exhaust vents behind the ear, noise level can be above average.

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
Tried on numerous helmets that included Shoei, Icon, AGV, and Scorpion at a local shop that sells Cyclegear. Really wanted the Scorpion Chameleon. However, none of those helmets gave me a comfortable fit and was unable to find a shop that carried Bell. Because of Revzilla's exchange policy, decided to take a chance and ordered the Bell Vortex; fit was perfect and comfortable. Other reviews make mention excessive noise and whistling. This is due to exit vents on both sides of the helmet that are located right behind the ears. Took one star off for the poor placement of the two exit vents.
Icon Overlord Prime Jacket For many years Icon has led the charge to conquer the moto leather market. Our unending quest for leather perfection has brought us to this point - the Overlord Prime. A chassis crafted from the finest cuts of Brazilian cowhide. The aggressive fit is complemented with engineered flex zones for unparalleled function. Precurved arms are set in a forward attitude to place you in an attack position, while strategically located plastic armor helps defend against the asphalt adversary. Finally, perforations and mesh panels combine for optimum operational temperatures. The Overlord Prime, truly a garment crafted for the most hostile of engagements. Icon attack fit 1.2-1.4mm premium grade leather chassis Removable Icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Icon external injected plastic protection on shoulders, elbows, and back Removable Icon dual-density foam back pad Gathered stretch panels for comfort and flexibility Strategically placed perforated leather for ventilation YKK autolock zippers Removable insulated wind resistant vest Upgradable to stryker CE back protector
Can you please tell me what are the differences between the accelarant, the overlord, and the overlord prime jackets?
