Helmet Can't Post

Hi, I am in the market for a full face helmet and have a question.
I wear glasses so I need one that will work with them. Cannot wear contacts.
I'm looking at a Cookie G3 and wonder if anyone has any experience with it with glasses?
Thank you for your time.

A G3 will work with glasses no problem, unless you have super oversized Urkel glasses. Most full faces should have no issues with glasses. I love my cookie helmets especially my G2 (G3's daddy). Super comfy, great visibility, I have taken some viscous hits and it protects well, awesome customer service. My guess is, you will love your G3!!

Hello :)

I bought a G3 as soon as my instructor allowed me too and I love it.
I jump with my glasses ( Big buddy Holly like ray bans ) and I have no problem. The helmet is super comfortable and looks great.
This is my first helmet though, so i dont have a reference to compare it too :)

Hope this helps!

Glasses or not, it's really important to try on a full face helmet before you buy. Go to a big gear store that has all sizes available, or ask around your DZ to try on someone else's. You'll find the shape of your head can have an impact on the fit. Then you can also try with your glasses on to make sure that it is comfortable with your glasses underneath.

Thank you all for the tips. I will try to get to a gear store to try it on first before I spend the money.
