    I try to wear as many as possible. Airflow's not too bad if you can get the vents to align properly.

    I have a Xen and a Xar for MTB'ing and a Lazer Helium tricolore for the road bike. It also wouldn't hurt to buy a cheap helmet to keep in the truck when a buddy forgets one.

    I have a few they are one time crash replacement, so I don't want to wait til I need to replace and buy one at premium. Shopping for things that's no in urgent need I can wait for the best price. I have one for night ride so I don't have to remove the light.

    I bought 2 Fox Flux last X-Mas for $35 each free shipping from Huck'N'Roll, why not cheaper than one retail.

    One for MTB, one for road, and extra old one in car in case I forget one one day.
    Love, Impy

    I have 2 Bell X-Rays. 1 for normal day use, and 1 that's fitted with my HID light for night riding.

    I ride 2-3 times/week during the day and 1-2 times/week at night, and installing/uninstalling the light became a major hassle and disincentive to ride at night, so I solved that problem!
