Helmet for snowmobiling and atving

5 posts in this topic

What is a good moderatly priced helmet for smowmobiling and atving? I am a bigger guy who wears glasses, so I am looking for something with a face shield that doesn't fog up too bad in the cold.

I just got a good one CHEAP at Dennis Kirk on I-35. < $100 for the better one - I got the XXXL. Use it for ATV & snowmobiles.

Highly recommend it!!

I've had a nice Bieffe for the last 8 years that works great. You can convert it from the full face shield to the motorcross style with visor in less than 2 minutes. I usually just run the motorcross style all year long though.

Check out Gander also. I just picked up a couple of Raider Modular helmets. They were 30% off through today. I have the same problem with glasses fogging. These have vents on them you can open that helps with that. (Chin and Forehead.)

I would recommend that you look toward an HJC CX-2 or similar style open face helmet. You can cut out a small square in the sides of the foam ring in some goggles for your glasses. Personally, I spend more money on a helmet because higher-priced models like the HJC ACX2 are about half the weight and have adjustable vents. Lightweight means you can ride longer without a sore neck, and more vents mean less overheating and fogging. I found my helmet on ebay and saved over $150. I would be concerned about buying a scratch and dent helmet from denniskirk, helmets are made for one hard impact only and they should be inspected or replaced after a crash. I did see that fleet farm had some decent looking helmets for under $100.

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
