I was looking at those helmets. Cheapest i could find on the bay. Hows your head fit inside it? Pass the shake test? Both visors operate the way they should? Its a sub 50 dollar helmet so it wont be perfect..
With the helmet on, shake your head back and forth like your saying "no". Does the helmet shake back and forth, or does it stay with your head? If it moves around, it's not tight enough and can come off in an accident. I've seen it happen, guy landed on his upperback after rear ending at stopped car. Helmet popped off, and he drug his head when he slid to a stop. He didn't survive 😢☠️
Can it be returned? If it's loose, you may want to.
Any full face helmet will probably feel big to you since you aren't used to them. Gotta have room for the stuff in there to keep you safe.
IMO helmets aren't the place to go with the cheapest thing you can find. Not saying you have to spend a small fortune, but maybe go with some well known reputable brands. I've used HJC for my riding career for the most part and they have some pretty decent stuff at low prices and I trust that if it has DOT or Snell or Euro test claims that they truly met them. I'm really not so sure about some of the Chinese made helmets. For best results, go to a shop and try helmets on. I buy mine online now, but only after wearing multiple HJC helmets and always using XXL. Even then, one helmet in a lineup can fit a little different and sizing and fit can definitely be different if you switch brands.
Not sure about that helmet, but popular brands usually offer multiple choices for different visors too. So you can get smoked, mirrored, gold, etc... and they swap out pretty easily in most cases.

Build quality seems okay on that helmet its just the size, no it does not pass a shake test for me.
I am going trough return now, i always believed i have huge head, i guess not by US standards... I am going for small size now, its waste of time to shop online and hope it will fit, will go to store try them on then purchase online at a better price point.
Currently i got this one with the scooter its small size and super tight i hardly fit in it, guess i can wear it temporary.
I assume something open like this will not give enough protection?
