I purchased the RST Gold shield for my red etched variant helmet. The shield looks awesome and provides enough protection from the sun while not impairing your vision too much at night. The only complaint that I have is that it doesn't fit the helmet as nicely as the stock clear shield that comes with the helmet. It also seems more flexible than the clear shield which is noticable when raising and lowering it. It doesn't positively lock into each detent position. I hope that Icon addresses this issue and makes the needed improvements. After all, they are charging us $45 for a shield that has their name on it.
