Anybody know of any half helmets that aren't as mushroom head as most of them out there. I knw it's a little inevitable, but i'd like to minimize the rediulousness.

Does the bell drifter sit really high on your head creaing that mushroom top? I saw a couple people ride with the Vega xts naked helmets.
Thats the one I wear as well. Mind you the mushroom is still there, but its greatly diminished. Its a lot smaller than the full on "Toad from Mario Bros" helmets the guys I work with wear.
Here are a few pictures of the vega that I found in the harley forums that convinced me to purchase mine.

I have the Vega as well. Does look better than most. As far as the "mushroom" effect goes.

What size immortal, I almost ordered that today
It's a large. The integrated tinted visor is pretty cool. I'll make you a slam deal on it if you're interested. I bought several other full face helmets and I just feel more comfortable in a full face.

I wear a skullcap "novelty" helmet around town sometimes. Or I did before my brother borrowed it and never gave it back. Not very legal, but I've never heard of anyone being bothered over it.

He did manage to eat pavement in a parking lot with it on and it did protect his noggin. Not that I recommend trying it yourself...

Half helmets offer protection without compromising too much of your mobility. They usually have a plastic or rubber liner that keeps your ears, nose, and mouth protected from the cold and wind. They also have a visor that can be raised to protect your eyes from the sun and rain.
There are many different brands and types of half helmets, Here are my suggestions for you: https://gearhonest.com/best-motorcycle-half-helmet/
