I think you are concerned with the 'rate of degradation'. I've designed sports helmets recently that use similar materials (EPS for example), but not for so long as to ascertain all aspects of durability. Your biggest concern would be loss in mechanical strength on photodegradation. The rate of change in the mechanical integrity of expanded polystyrene ...

This answer concerns mountain biking. My backpack has a dedicated helmet holding piece, but I don't use it, as inserting or removing the helmet requires adjusting 6 adjustment straps.

You can make your own retention system for any bag which will hold the helmet secure and close to the bag. I've done this on a number of my bags as I carry both bycicle and climbing helmets at times and there is never enough space for them inside a bag as they're such awkward shapes. Buy some elasticated cord (often called shock cord) and some cord locks ...

Stick on or sew on Velcro fastener on the strap close to the helmet and on a suitable part of the back pack or an industrial size press stud fastener. Hopefully you do not plan to carry the helmet on your back pack when you are riding

I just use the strap with its own clip. It does swing around though. Some bags have an elastic net that works very well (I have a rucksack that does this but I hardly ever ride with it). Can you get the carabiner through both sides of the strap? That might help. It might be too tight though. Replacing the carabiner with a strap you can pull tighter might ...

Answer: Yes - anything on your helmet may affect its ability to function. Remember the skiing accident that gave Michael Schumacher brain damage? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/motorsport/formulaone/michael-schumacher/10640839/Michael-Schumacher-skiing-crash-did-helmet-camera-cause-head-injuries.html That was not cycling, but he managed to run his ...
