Hi All,

Has anyone found any kind of face shield that you can wear with a
bicycle helmet on?

TIA,

Respro Vizor is the only one I know

PS We think the helmet lobby overstress the dangers of cycling but just
visited the Respro site to check they still made Vizors and the front
page is just "Its too toxic out there" in big bold letters. Perhaps we
should be wearing fully armoured hazchem suits for cycling these days

I know that too, but I'm looking for something that covers more of the
face.

I don't care about lobbies, only my sinusitis and the headaches I get
from being exposed to cold wind in the area just below my eyes, and
breathing in all the pollution on the road.

Bicycle polo? Is that as dangerous as it looks?

Would a balaclava thin enough to fit under your helmet help? Something
like this perhaps? <http://www.wiggle.co.uk/?ProductID=5300004301>

You'll need a gas mask to prevent you breathing in the polution, face
masks are not much use except for dust.

If the rules are understood and followed by the players it's not
unreasonably dangerous.

Yes, that's another alternative I'm considering. Or this one here,
too, since I already wear a headband

How about a thermal face mask from www.Tchibo.co.uk?

Put "thermal face mask" in the Search box and you'll find it.
Very nice for £2.99

I've got their thermal fleece headband which is really excellent. The
top part of the face mask looks to be the same thing.

Separate items which (confusingly) are shown in the same picture.
Facemask is just the bottom part of the photo. I got one to try, but
it's not been cold enough to need it yet.

Aha! That would explain why the look so similar. I had assumed they
were attached. Thanks for clearing that up.

Seems rather interesting for what I need!

Since you have a facemask, can you tell me - or us - if the mask can
be brought up higher in the face, closer to the eyes? (Right below the
eyes is a particularly sensitive spot for someone who suffers from
sinusitis and gets cold in that area ...)

Thank you very much!
