Any experience with the Stratosphere? I feel it is a beatiful piece of industrial design and would like to sport one. However, I wonder if it comes close to offering any substantial protection in a crash.
Opinions?

There's a guy at my work that has one. He bought it in Italy and I think he said he paid $20 or so for it. It's made from soft foam-rubberish stuff and plastic. It's light, but I doubt it would protect your head from even the most mild impacts. Also, and this is highly subjective, he said it feels "hotter" than this Boras.
