Well after wearing the nice light carbon fiber helmet I've been busy adding various weight pieces back.
I became tired of having to re-connect my video ipod everytime I put on my helmet so I went back to the idea of the in-helmet ipod shuffle. A rubber round feet was added to the center of the ipod to allow pausing and resuming of the music, with gloves, during the ride.
The hjc ear pockets were also large enough to simply insert my seinheiser speakers Mx100 without cutting the foam.
The side straps of the regular foggy mask was annoying and I stopped using them due to the fact that they were never tight enough against my face. However the HJC nose/mouth fog mask is unique in that it does not have the side velcro strips, shaped much like an atheletic cup and held in place by a large velcro in the mouth area of the helmet. For the most part, it does reduce fogging but I still have to raise my visor occasionally when it is really cold.
The windjammer II (http://www.webbikeworld.com/r2/windj...nd-blocker.htm) was ordered from Pro-line (U.K.) and arrived today by mail (~$20 cdn), cuts a lot of the wind noise and I can actually hear a great deal of the music without the annoying wind turbulence.
