BSMC Gear Guide #24
By Gareth Roberts - 05 Sep 14
Finally the Bell Bullitt has arrived at our shores, and the BSMC crew got their grubby mits on one of the first. Also reviewed in this week's Gear Guide is leather from ELMC, womens biker boots from Chippewa, Filson packs and more great leather goods from Chester Belter.
The Bullitt is light and super comfy. Designed to suit more of an oval shape than the traditional round head of a lot of Bell styles (so I'm told) it suits me fine. I have a slimmish shaped oval head and can find even with the correct size that I get a slight hot spot at my forehead. If you get a similar fit front to back its worth noting that its likely you're going to feel the poppers for the handy removable liner on your forehead. I mean REALLY feel them, but I sorted this with about 30 seconds of softening the area with my thumbs. Now its like a glove! My head measurement is about 59cm which is at the top end of a size large, its a comfortable fit and I'd say the helmets are a fairly true, if a little snug, size fitting. http://www.bellhelmets.com/en_eu/powersports/helmets/bullitt/ http://www.chippewaboots.com http://www.filson.com/luggage/ http://www.elmc.co/ http://chesterbelter.bigcartel.com/products
