Helmet Bag?

What's the best helmet bag/carrier? Don't want my helmet bouncing around the truck or loose in the back, have seen a few helmet bags, some with hard shell, some without.

Any opinions?

For your car or truck, you could prolly go out to Goodwill/Salvation Army and pick up an old school bowling ball bag. I wouldn't get too fancy with it. How much time does your helmet really spend in your truck as opposed to on a shelf in your house?

I have the one Arai gives you with a new helmet but then I also have a nice one made by Shoei that zips up and has a handle. Kinda looks like a bowling ball bag, but is softer and is fuzzy on the inside. Also has a spot to keep extra visors.

Oops, just noticed this is for the track section. I have a OGIO 9800 which carries all of my gear in the same piece of luggage. Helps me not misplace anything.

Google for hazardous sports helmet bag. It's almost hard shell but not quite and it's padded a bit inside. Has loops for attaching it to the bike. Very nice.

Just bought two hazardous sportcases for $59 each, one for my buddy who has the trailer (who let me use his trailer to move two bikes over the weekend...)

Need to figure out a way to have an actual interest in that trailer.
