Visor Colour

Post by werak »

The CRL says that the visor can be Red or Smoke coloured. I've seen some pics of helmets with dark (black) visors, is this acceptable? I'd rather have a dark(black) visor as a red one would bother me eyes more.

Thanks for any info.

This may have been an optical illusion.

My visor looks black in pictures but it's actually red, with an extra layer of black window tinting foil on the inside.

Having my whole world be red helps me get in character, though.

Started with the dark smoke visor but upgraded to the red tint. It isn't as bad as it seems save you definitely cannot see blue lights! Our Garrison con photo they had a blue light to look at to signal for the picture.

"Look at the blue light everyone"

Ummm what blue light? :trsuit:

Love the red but really long as you can't see through the visor either or works.
