    Where did all the 2x4 helmets go?
    by Bob E
    And how come every one made in the last couple decades has to have one of those flip flopper lenses?
    I'd so much rather put an AD lens in an old school helmet. Or just keep the nice passive glass lens in there.
    Am I really the only one who doesn't care for the new helmets?
