    Helmet Liners?

    I'd be grateful for a tip on a helmet liner which is thin and will keep my helmet clean. I had a Slik which was fine but no longer available. The Aerostitch Jimi is too thick for the closely fitting Arai I have - can't poke my sunglasses under it. So...what's good these days in skull caps?

    I like Buff better because they are seamless and can double as a balaclava, scarf ot headband. I have a sweatvac as well but have 4 Buffs I wear the entire bike season.

    I really like the one which LD Comfort sells but it too is a little thick. Sure keeps you cool in the summer though!

    I found the SIiver Eagle product to work well and fit well under my Arai. Had it about 5 years.

    I too found the 'Jimi' style too bulky.

    I got off on the wrong foot with this query. The cap I was trying to replace isn't Sliks but hjc KoolMax which is still available. Thanks for your feed back all.

    Zoommo, good tip. Pilot helmet use is an interesting slant and they look well made/taylored. Colors too!

    UA sells a "mesh" cap like the pro-footballers wear. I have used them for several years and like them very much. Our local Sports Authority sells them..about 16 bucks

    I've used these for years upon the recommendation of a friend that did a stint with the Thunderbirds. They also help reduce noise levels.

    Can you use these wet to use evap cooling? Was thinking of an LD Comfort model for that purpose mainly, but would love something that makes my lemet quieter.

    I wetted mine with cold water a few days ago on a particularly warm day. Kept my head cool until the airflow dried it out. Synthetics dry pretty quickly.

    Cool Helmet Liners

    I've been using the heavy cotton military helmet liners from my Navy jet jock days for many years now. They wash up well and, seemingly, never wear out.

    I've bought several over the years, but have never wore one more than once or twice. I just don't like them. I remove my Helmet liners and wash them. I then reinstall them...
