This review is meant to be instructional for those G2 owners with issues. I treat my G2 no different than I do my expensive motorcycle helmets. When I'm not jumping, it's in my DZ locker in the Cookie helmet case. When I'm jumping, it hangs on my rig rack until I am gearing up for a load. I see other jumpers treat their G2s like they are cheap $60 helmets. I don't, and as a result of that, mine still looks new. Getting onto the airplane, I pull my visor half way down so that I can't bang it on the door or the ceiling of the aircraft. For most rides up, unless its really hot, I leave it on. I like the visor to be half closed to remind me to close it before exiting. I only fully close the visor right before I exit. In freefall it is amazingly quiet and secure. The visor has only rattled a little during high speed head down positions, but never during belly or sit flying positions. After opening my canopy, checking my air space, and stowing my slider, I open the visor to have fresh air in my face during my canopy ride and landing.
