Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
A lot of what I see is Snell is better cause they test harder or Snell is DOT is better because they test the actual impact resistance as opposed to Snell’s testing of impact resistance plus survivability. I ended up with the DOT only because nobody I talked to could find a Snell approved modular helmet. The helmet I had was a HJC CL-MAX which helps a lot . The one thing I seemed to be against to being with was carrying an extra shield for my helmet but I now seem to always carry a tinted and a clear one. It may be worth considering which is the easiest swap.
*** I hate sunglasses and always have yet a shaded visor or glasses seem to help soo much it is just to easy to ignore.

Modular helmets will help because you can slide the frames in after you put the helmet on. If you need prescription glasses check with your eye doctor. My ophthalmologist has a some prescriptions they write just for motorcycle helmets shields.
I ended up with the HJC CL-MAX. It is a modular helmet that allows me to use glasses when necassary. I would really have loved the SY-MAX II because of the slide down darkened lenses. I have a pair of Oakley Halfjacket XLJs that I put in them when needed. They fit but it is fairly tight. The SY-MAX II lenses did not drop down far enough for a sports bike position but were great for the cruiser I was riding for a while.
I also tried on a Shoei MultiTech which had special slots just for glasses.
