I got the Backe edition and in my humble opinion, it's the best looking design/color of all available Bug options. The design is so slick and clean, the only downside is since the shell has more of a shiny finish than the matte finish of others, the scratches seem to show up quick(er). As for the helmet itself, I love the simplicity in its construction (not to say the design isn't sophisticated, the double overlapping shells do seem to work very well controlling the heat inside the helmet without compromising its ability to protect against penetration), the durable materials, and lightness. My only gripe is the detachable clip for goggle straps (poor design, flimsy, etc.); I just do without it.
I really like this helmet a lot. POC put a lot of R&D into the design of the Receptor Bug and it has paid off. The helmet isn't too bulky, doesn't weigh a ton, but has great protection. I am definitely glad I have been wearing it in a few instances. Works equally well with goggles over the top or under the helmet. I generally prefer the latter. Fits true to size and fits well with both my Oakley Crowbars as well as with my POC lobes.
I've had several helmets over the past few seasons and this is by far the best. It's light, comfortable and looks great. I use it with Oakley Crowbars which fit very well. I've also mounted a GoPro Hero HD recently which is staying put without issue.
I really like this helmet. Fits great good style and durable. My only complaint is how goggles attach. Its pretty cheap but even without the piece goggles stay on pretty well. Just ordered a second one for my sister.
This helmet rocks! So comfortable and warm, but not too hot when hiking and touring. It vents surprisingly well! And I love the kick ass colors. It does tend to run a bit small.
Sick colors and great fit. I love my Tanner hall Rasta colord helmet pretty sickk. and really protects you head with pocs great helmet designs and double hard shell.
Somedays Its like i do not even now I'm wearing it.
Fits like a second skull.
Breathes like a sponge.
Great fit, light, and warm enough for those really cold days. Everything I needed in a helmet
Fits great and stays warm!
I am still a fan of the designs, colors, and tech that POC puts into its helmets but they did not work out for me. First off the sizing chart is wrong in every helmet I've had I've been a large POC said I was a XL they were wrong. Backcountry send me the right size and made an exchange really easy (thanks BC) but the helmet has strange pressure points. I had read previous reviews that stated this but didn't believe them tell I had tried the helmet.
Bottom line I like the brand but the sizing chart is a size too large and its a uncomfortable helmet unless your a alien or Swedish.
Great protection and fit. Not one you can adjust easily with the turn of a dial to fit perfect but fit me pretty well out of the box. If i could add anything i would add a venting system that is easy to adjust. Kind of a pain, but still a great helmet.
