Roadgear Ultimate Helmet Garage
OK, so you bought that $800.00 Schuberth S1 motorcycle helmet. Now
where are you going to store it? You certainly can't stuff a helmet
like that in a greasy cabinet in the corner of the garage. That would
be like parking a Rolls Royce in a carport!
What to do? Roadgear to the rescue with the "Ultimate Helmet
Garage". Maybe it was a product before it's time -- after all, who
anticipated we'd be seeing $800.00 helmets? But it's just right for the likes of
the Schuberth S1, the Shark RSR or any other lid. Heck, it even works
for helmets costing a tenth as much!
The Ultimate Helmet Garage is made in the U.S.A., which is a
pleasant surprise. Most other luggage retailers have long since
resorted to overseas sourcing, so it's nice to know that someone still cares
about local sourcing.
The Ultimate Helmet Garage has got to be the most super-deluxe lid locker
available anywhere. This is no simple helmet bag folks - it's a huge
helmet storage system, capable of holding a helmet and lots of other associated
gear. They should have thrown in a shoulder harness - this
thing's big enough to use for a week long holiday!
Open the garage "door" with its hefty zipper pulls, and you're looking
into a 30 cm wide (12") cavern that's 45 cm (17-3/4") deep and 30 cm (12")
high. The garage is made with heavy-duty DuPont Cordura fabric, just
like textile motorcycle jackets and luggage. The internal sides and
rear walls are covered in a soft fleece. A drop-down fleece
panel is located at the top that can be used to store spare visors. It attaches
to the top of the garage with a "hook and loop" fastener.
The door also has its own pocket on the front with a two-way zipper.
The zipper for this pocket is located about 1/3 of the way from the top and
opens about 23 cm wide (9"). Inside, the pocket runs the full length
of the door, which means that there's plenty of room to stuff in all sorts
There are a couple of stiffeners in the walls and floor, which also have
a "Tempurfoam" filler. The bottom is covered in Roadgear's "Toughtek"
rubber-like fabric, the same as their tank bags.
The two sides and the top the garage each have a mesh pocket with a
sewn-in piece of elastic as a "waistband" . These can be used to hold
gloves, helmet liners, earplugs or other accessories. The front and back of the
garage even include the "Roadgear" logo in a 3M Scotchlite reflective
There's a big brass eye ring attached to the rear floor of the garage,
and a nylon webbed handle at the front. These can be used to hang the
garage from a hook, carry it around or bungee it to your bike in a pinch.
The Ultimate Helmet Garage is the perfect storage facility for your
favorite helmet. Don't forget, the holidays are just around the
corner, and this would make a perfect gift!
