If a larger helmet still fits right, good deal. If not, the potential for severe injury or death from an improperly fitting helmet does not make it a good idea.
I wear titanium flexall wire rim and arm glasses. They are small, light and flexible. Still though, putting on a properly fitting full face helmet and having my glasses on correctly, both very important safety matters, just aint gonna happen.
The flip up portion on my DOT modular says not rated for chin protection. Not rated. That doesn't mean it will not provide protection to my chin or face. It's deflected several stones and bugs. If I fall off, it will offer some level of protection to my face, just not the same level as a full face. That flip down portion can come unsnapped in a wreck. So yeah, there is validity to the argument that full face is better than modular. I suppose it goes; full face, modular, 3/4 with face shield, 3/4, beanie skid lid type, novelty. Don't bother with novelty.
