Odd helmet request

I saw a helmet once that was dirtbike in style (low, extended chin bar, upper visor) but still had a full, flip up face shield.

Anyone seen this helmet, know who makes it? I have looked at most of the major helmet maufacturers and haven't seen it.

I'd sport a stormtrooper helmet- if it IR and nightvision and air filters.

Absolutely nothing.

Wynona loved her big brown beaver
And she stroked him all the time.
She pricked her finger one day and it
Occurred to her she might have a porcupine
