I got a modular HJC IS - MAX II for when I go to the city and overpopulated areas or when I just wanna go 100+ kmh, and got the Origine SPRINT REBEL STAR GREY with bandit goggles and a neck tube, for the more slower enjoying the wind and environment kind of ride, both have action camera mounts, nothing too fancy

I just picked up a Bell Pit Boss, matte black, half helmet. I found that I was not using the bike for short rides to the store because the full face helmet was too much trouble (i know, i know).
The new helmet is ok for short rides, but there is too much wind buffeting and noise to use it for long rides.

HJC IS-Max II also, use it for everything as it's my only helmet. I just lift the visor for slow times, but I've taken it up to 85mph visor closed. It's about as loud as you'd expect 85mph wind to sound, loud.

2 GLX GX15s. Not sure why 2, as they're both identical fit and function. Not high end, and nothing fancy, but they seem to be ok with wind noise and they have built in sun visor. I don't ride at night, so matte black is not an issue with visibility.

I have a Pit Boss Helmet. I took it to an upholstery shop and had them install 3 snaps across the front so that I can use the face shields from my Bell 500s. The Pit Boss is the most comfortable helmet that I own.
