    Default Skin Cancer Spinoff: Riding Helmet Visors?

    I'm looking into getting a riding helmet visor because my family is so susceptible to skin cancer. The Soless looks nice because it's clear but still protective; what others are out there?

    Salamander Helmet visor: http://www.ridingwarehouse.com/Salam...page-SBHV.html
    Comes in many different colors. I have one and like it alot. It is easily removable too so you don't have to have it all the time or you can switch it for different colors.

    The soless looks like it could work on a horse (for those with uv issues). Sew it a bumper halter and they'd have 360 visibility. They'd probably break it too quickly though.

    I use an Equivisor. It looks a bit like a sun bonnet, but I love the shade it throws.

    You can make your own very cheaply -- thin, flexible craft type foam can be cut to shape and attached with sticky velcro tabs. Works great, you can make any colour you want, decorate, design, however you like.

    /snicker. My horse doesn't need this

    Anyway, the reason I liked the soless is that it's clear. I already feel like my vision is blocked just by the teeny visor on my helmet....

    I've had my Soless visor for over 2 years and it's still in great shape. I agree that the transparency is a plus and it stays ON!!
