RE: My helmet specs
I think the HJC CL-17 is worth a look since it's only $125 and DOT/Snell approved. The weight is 1.77 Kg. I have one but the fitting for my head is not quite right so I bought a Shoei neotec which cost a lot more.

So, let's draw breath and summarize. This antipodean was a bit confused for a moment.

Rotor wants a helmet. His initial criteria were: full face, light, white, cheap. However we've since established that safety tests are generally unreliable and stickers can be bought in the dollar store.

We can rule out the ski hat and an ordinary bicycle helmet as they don't meet the full face test.

Given that safety is apparently not an issue and cost is, I'd be wondering about a spot of fabrication with a couple of plastic ice cream containers, a clear lid from a plastic yoghurt container and an old belt.

Good luck.

let me retry
I got a fair bit of good advice, but it was a mistake on my part to engage in editorializing and pointless elaboration of my preferences. So, please ignore all my previous posts in this thread and imagine the opening post read simply thus:

I am looking for a light full-face helmet. If you happen to have one that weighs less than 1250 grams (2.75 pounds) could you please let me know the make and model, and where was it purchased?

Out of the 275 helmets on the list at the link below 1 meets your weight criteria. That should simplify the selection task for you. Or you may have to consider raising your max weight limit.
