    : If you remember back a couple months ago, I was musing that someone should
    : manufacture mesh into the vents on bike helmets to keep the bugs out.
    Well,
    : in this month's issue of Bicycling, they talk about and show the new
    helmet
    : from Uvex, the Supersonic RS, which has mesh on the front facing vents...

    I got a big ol' grasshopper stuck in one of my front-facing vents one
    summer. It bothered me so much that I raised my right hand and strategically
    smacked myself in the right temple. After I got out of the bar ditch, I
    decided not to do that any more....

    I use a Cratoni helmet I bought several years ago. It has netting over the
    front-facing vent holes. It's not a new idea.
